Alpha Introduces SAC305 Ultrafine Cored Wire for Fine Pitch Component Soldering and Rework
Alpha Assembly Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and bonding materials, is introducing ALPHA® SAC305 Ultrafine Cored Wire for use in attaching or repairing very fine pitch components approaching 0.20mm.
“With the increase of solder joint density and miniaturization, ALPHA® SAC305 Ultrafine Cored Wire is an ideal solution where solder paste reflow or other soldering applications are not compatible to the design”, said Bernice Chung, Global Portfolio Manager for Wave Soldering at Alpha Assembly Solutions, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions Group of Businesses. “Fine pitch PCB assemblies have higher quality and reliability standards, which requires precise solder wire feeding volume and non-skip solder feeding. Ultrafine cored wire delivers consistent diameter size and flux continuity to ensure unfailing wire feeding, especially in robotic soldering, such as laser soldering technologies”.
ALPHA® SAC305 Ultrafine Cored Wire offers fast soldering performance and has passed the most stringent reliability tests. It can be used for any customer who has previously approved larger diameter wire using ALPHA® Telecore® HF-850, Telecore® XL-825 or Telecore® Plus core fluxes. Provided in cored wire for convenient use, ALPHA® SAC305 Ultrafine Cored Wire is available in 0.2mm, 0.15mm and 0.1mm to fit different process requirements.
