We examined future trends in the electronics industry, and more specifically the surface mount process. Here is our summary of SMT trends that will dominate in 2019 and beyond. Solder Usage for Electronic Miniaturization The continuing trend for miniaturization of electronics creates ongoing challenges for soldering product formulators and stencil manufacturers. Usage of smaller components […]
FCT Assembly has over 100 years of combined experience in formulating solder. Read on to learn more about our solder here.
Surface mount soldering is the process of creating circuits using surface mount technology (SMT) components that are mounted directly onto the surface of printed circuit boards (PCBs). SMT technology is a key driver in the ever-important work of miniaturization of circuits, allowing for smaller, lighter devices with ever-increasing capabilities. Today’s cell phones have exponentially more […]
Solder paste flux is a gelatinous chemical compound used mainly in combination with solder powder to create solder paste, generally mixed as a 50/50 ratio. Once combined, the paste is a gray, putty-like material. Solder paste flux serves a threefold purpose: Removing any oxidized metal from the surfaces to be soldered Sealing out air, preventing […]
