Generally in the world of solder, once a solder preform or section of wire is reflowed it has been consumed and there is not any need to consider what to do with the leftover material. There is no need to consider a reclaim or recycle process. But there are, of course,...
Phil Zarrow: Ron, we’ve discussed that performance of materials can affect productivity, and hence profitability. Can you give us an example?
Ron Lasky: Yeah. I was working with a certain customer that had a problem with their solder paste that we call poor response-to-pause. As you’re aware, probably several times a day, the assembly line has to be shut down to replenish components. And in that pause time, some solder pastes can stiffen up. And then we turn the line back on and you make a stencil print, that first print is bad. And you have to wipe that board and reprint it again. You lose probably about two minutes, maybe every two hours.
Phil Zarrow: And how can this affect the bottom line?
