ZESTRON’s Ravi Parthasarathy will be Presenting at SMTA Capital Expo

Manassas, VA – August 15, 2019 ZESTRON, the global leading provider of high precision cleaning products, services, and training solutions in the electronics manufacturing and semiconductor industries, is pleased to announce that Ravi Parthasarthy will be presenting, “Jet Printed Solder Paste and Cleaning Challenges” at the SMTA Capital Expo on August 22.

Presentation Abstract:

Recent evidence has shown that it is becoming extremely challenging to consistently deliver the correct amount of solder using the screen printing process. More and more manufacturers in today’s production environment are overcoming this challenge by incorporating jet printing as an additional step to increase solder paste volume. Solder paste jetting offers the flexibility to deposit the right volume of solder paste on boards with both miniature and large components that must be soldered adjacent to each other.

Anecdotal evidence indicates that as solder powder becomes finer, the resulting flux residues become more difficult to remove. This presentation is part of a study executed specifically on jet printing (Type 5) solder pastes using multiple cleaning agents in both spray-in-air inline and batch cleaning systems. The results are further validated by several industry case studies.

Along with Mr. Parthasarathy’s presentation, ZESTRON will have an exhibit at SMTA Capital event.
