RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA – Aqueous Technologies, North America’s largest manufacturer of fully automated cleaning/defluxing machines and cleanliness testing equipment, announces that its CEO Mike Konrad will present a series of five Cleaning and Reliability webinars. The first live webinar presentation entitled “Cleaning in the Age of No Clean” will take place Tuesday July 8, 2014 from 10-11 a.m. PDT.
Over the past several years, the electronic assembly industry has seen cleaning (defluxing) become more necessary and more challenging. The amount of tolerable assembly residue is less than ever before. Modern issues such as electro-chemical migration and electrical leakage are creating quantifiable reliability issues as well as associated liability concerns.
Never before has the removal of contamination from circuit assemblies been so important to a product's overall reliability. Increasing component and assembly densities, decreasing standoff heights, higher reflow temperatures, and increased reliability expectations have created a "perfect storm" that is driving manufacturers to seek cleaning solutions.
The first webinar will cover the following topics:
- The history of electronics cleaning
- No-clean flux's impact on assembly reliability
- Electro-Chemical Migration and its three common failure mechanisms
- Dendritic growth
- Parasitic leakage
- Conductive Anodic Filament (CAF)
While this five-part webinar series is offered free of charge, registration is limited. Register now to reserve your "seat" and get the benefits of this valuable presentation series without having to leave your office.
