Reading time ( words)

Atotech, a leading specialty chemicals technology company and a market leader in advanced electroplating solutions will take part at IPC APEX EXPO 2022 and present four technical papers this year, touching on the following hot industry topics “crystal structures in plated microvias”, “electroless palladium plating”, “Pd-free activation for electroless Cu”, and “nano structuring photoresist adhesion promoter”. For Atotech’s work on analyzing and improving the crystal structures in plated microvias, our technical paper has been selected as Honorable Mention for the 2022 IPC APEX EXPO Technical Conference. Both, IPC APEX EXPO and its accompanying Technical Conference will be held at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA from January 22 to 27.  The Atotech global team will be at booth 3317 to discuss this year’s technical paper presentations, show highlights or to exchange ideas on new technology demands.

It’s always great to see two very good companies form a mutually beneficial alliance. I was lucky enough to watch this particular strategic partnership come to fruition this year between RBP Chemical and Schlötter. I wanted to talk to both companies, so I sat down with Matthias Hampel, global executive representative-PCB and electronics at Schlötter, and Ernest Litynski, president of RBP Chemical Technology, to get the inside story.

A Tour of the New Isola Factory: Investing in North America

12/23/2021 | Barry Matties, I-Connect007
Barry Matties recently toured Isola’s new 118,000-square-foot low-volume, high-mix manufacturing facility in Chandler, Arizona. The facility’s construction began in 2020 and, like many building projects, was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Building a new factory during the pandemic was certainly a challenge but the team persevered and the new greenfield facility is now operating to meet the needs of the North American market. During the tour, Barry met with Travis Kelly, Ed Kelley, Sean Mirshafiei, Jenny Inocencio, and Walt Niziolek. They covered a range of topics, including lab operations, hiring, the supply chain, R&D, and the concept of the new facility. The factory was designed to extensively utilize automation to improve efficiencies and, as Travis Kelly stated, “to de-risk the labor shortage issue.”
