RBP Chemical Technology will be holding a webcast on January 9, 2018 on troubleshooting printed wiring board defects. Led by Mike Carano, RBP Vice President of Technology and Business Development, this webcast series will explore the most intricate factors of advanced problem solving of printed circuit board defects and how the interrelationship of both up and downstream processes contribute to scrap product.
Defects, such as interconnect separation, delamination, wedge voids, plating folds, microvoids, surface pitting, and hole wall pull-away, carry significant costs. Many are difficult to solve because the root cause may not be readily apparent and multiple factors may contribute.
The webcast will discuss innerlayer surface preparation and imaging, including cleaning, resist lamination, exposure and developing, and fine line etching; lamination and related defects; and drilling issues and the effects on plating quality.

The first day of the conference had started and ended in the dark—a long and technically intense day! After a convivial conference dinner and a good night’s sleep we were back on the bus, this time in daylight at the slightly later time of 8:00 a.m., for the journey from downtown Lyon back to Alstom’s conference facility in Villeurbanne, and it wasn’t raining. In fact, there was even some sunshine later in the day!

I recently had the opportunity to chat with the new director of sales and marketing at Eagle Electronics, Andy D’Agostino. I’ve visited Eagle before; they are endlessly busy, with good things going on, so I was happy when I learned that Brett McCoy was now COO and another fellow had taken over some of the sales and marketing activities. Andy comes with a wealth of experience and seems to have settled in nicely.
