Jul 01, 2005
The electronics group of Henkel successfully exhibited its lead-free expertise at the recent Technology Days, held at the European headquarters of Vitronic-Soltec in the Netherlands over the 7th and 8th June 2005.
Attended mainly by customers from the Benelux region, the event played host to an array of Henkel's leading customers including Phillips, Alcatel and Neways. The day enabled Henkel to showcase its relationship with high profile, industry-leading partners whilst presenting a comprehensive working solution.
The combination of various presentations and workshops at the event highlighted Henkel's overall position as a fundamental part of a much wider process. Reinforcing this, the involvement of Henkel's partners provided customers with a significant insight into the complexity of going lead-free that Henkel endeavours to simplify.
"We work closely with our partners to ensure maximum compatibility," explains Group Director of Application Engineering for the electronics group of Henkel, Frank Ongkiehong. "We want our customers to see this and understand that with the support of our partners, Henkel is best placed to deliver a complete and optimised lead-free solution," he adds.
Henkel's Technology Day also featured a well received seminar on the subject of Macromelt low pressure moulding, outlining the new possibilities associated with the technology for manufacturers of circuits that must be protected against environmental influences such as sensors and automotive control units.
