Driving e-Mobility: Rel-ion™: Best Practices For SMT Assembly & Root Cause Analysis
October 12, 2022
SESSION #1 @ 8:30AM Germany/12PM India/2:30PM China, Malaysia SESSION #2 @ 10AM San Francisco / 1PM New York / 6PM London / 7PM Germany
Presenter: David Sbiroli, Principal Engineer, Global Accounts Technical Manager
This webinar will focus on optimizing two of the most important areas of the SMT assembly process, printing & reflow. To obtain a high yield process with a low defect rate, both the printing and reflow process must be fully understood and finetuned to work with the materials being used for assembly. More

This webinar will focus on optimizing two of the most important areas of the SMT assembly process, printing & reflow. To obtain a high yield process with a low defect rate, both the printing and reflow process must be fully understood and finetuned to work with the materials being used for assembly. In this seminar Sbiroli will discuss:

  • Printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) material’s selection & optimization (solder paste & board design)
  • Proper storage & handling techniques
  • Stencil selection
  • Stencil printer setup
  • Common solder paste printing defects & how to overcome
  • Designing a reflow profile for low voiding & high reliability
  • Understanding & mitigation of common reflow related defects including voiding, head-in-pillow (HiP), non-wet opens (NWO), graping & tombstoning

A question & answer session will be held at the end of the presentation. Please bring your SMT process challenges to discuss with the presenter. Sbiroli has almost 30 years’ experience related to SMT materials & process optimization.

Managed Charging and Vehicle-to-Grid: Reality or a Distant Dream?
October 13, 2022 @ 11:30AM New York Co-Hosts: Apoorv Bhargava, CEO and Co-founder of WeaveGrid, Brian O’Leary, Global Accounts Manager, Global Head e-Mobility & Infrastructure, Loren McDonald, Electric Vehicle (EV) Analyst at EVAdoption

With the number of EVs on the road in the US expected to reach nearly 40 million in 2030 from roughly 2.7 million today, several questions have emerged around whether our regional grids will be able to support this growth in demand and load.

With the number of EVs on the road in the US expected to reach nearly 40 million in 2030 from roughly 2.7 million today, several questions have emerged around whether our regional grids will be able to support this growth in demand and load.

In California for example, modeling from the Energy Innovation Policy & Technology research firm shows electricity demand could grow 18% from 2020 levels by 2030, as vehicles and buildings electrify. But because EVs are essentially storage batteries on wheels and most passenger vehicles sit parked 22 or more hours per day, they have the huge potential to help stabilize the grid rather than bring it down.

In this webcast, Apoorv Bhargava, expert on the grid and EVs and CEO/co-founder of WeaveGrid, a software company that builds data products to enable increased adoption of electric vehicles, will share his thoughts on how the role of emerging techniques such as managed charging, vehicle-to-grid and vehicle-to-home will play out this decade. Hosts Brian O’Leary and Loren McDonald will dive into key topics with Apoorv including:

  • What we learned about EVs and the grid from the recent threat of blackouts in California
  • The role of managed charging as a key tool in utilities’ toolbox to minimize the load impact of EVs during high demand times of the day.
  • The promise of vehicle-to-grid, vehicle-to-home and vehicle-to-building to feed power to the grid or minimize the need for additional power generation.

Statistical Process Control (SPC) 101 web logo
Statistical Process Control (SPC) 101
November 8, 2022 @ 10AM New York Presenter: Ron Lasky, Ph.D., PE, Senior Technologist

This Insider Series Webinar will cover statistical process control (SPC). SPC is an important tool in controlling SMT assembly processes, especially stencil printing. 

The webinar will start with a discussion of the 6 Ms of variation and then delineate common cause and special cause variation. The difference between precision and accuracy will then be clarified. After discussing the precision tolerance ratio, the technique to perform a Gage R&R (Repeatability and Reproducibility) analysis will be presented. Process control charts, and their development by Walter Shewhart, will then be discussed including the Shewhart Rules. Several sets of SPC Xbar-R and C Chart data will then be plotted and analyzed with Minitab®. A 30 day trial version of Minitab is available for free.
