Keep up to date with the latest hot topics and new technology

In addition to the SMCBA Conference a series of free seminars will be held in the seminar theatre on the show floor. These sessions will run for 30 - 40 minutes and will cover a range of topics and technology to inform and keep you up to date with the latest developments and technology for electronics and advanced manufacturing.

We we like to welcome our international presenters Beth Turner, Development Chemist for Electrolube - Coatings Division in the UK;  Stephen Cheung from Hong Kong, Product Manager, DC-DC Transformers with Wurth Electronics and Patrick Duchi, World Wide Cleaning Expert for Inventec Performance Chemicals international sister companies who is based in Switzerland. These industry experts will be joined by leading presenters from Australia.

Wednesday 11 September 2019

10.30am

The Greenway of Cleaning PWAs in Electronics
Patrick Duchi (Switzerland) - Onboard Solutions

Because of the phase out of CFCs and HCFCs and the evolution of solder pastes and fluxes from RA and RMA to No-Clean with low and very low residues, many companies developed their own cleaning solutions. Unfortunately for most of the suppliers of cleaners, two other trends have emerged which have had an impact on cleaning practices and performance - lead-free soldering and product miniaturisation. This has meant that cleaning solutions and their performance have had to be improved to meet current requirements.

11.15am

How to Design a Flyback Transformer with the Power Supply Specification? Wurth Electronics Online Tool (REDEXPERT) for selecting flyback transformer
Stephen Cheung (HK) Product Manager DC-DC Transformers – Wurth Electronics

This is an online platform for simple component selection and performance simulation. You can calculate your losses in real-time. Inductor losses are one of the critical factors in the design of an efficient power supply. REDEXPERT will allow you to determine accurately your total AC losses at any operating condition.

12.15pm

IPC Standards, Training and Certification
Andrew Pollock, Executive Officer - SMCBA

This presentation will provide an update on the latest revision of the most used IPC standards and the current schedule for revision of these standards. It will also provide information about IPC training and certification, the benefits to individuals and companies and the current training and certification process.

1.00pm

Applications in 3D Printed Electronics
Matt Schimmelbusch, 3S & Additive Product Manager – Emona Instruments

3D printing technologies such as inkjet deposition and aerosol jet are revolutionizing electronics R & D, manufacturing, research and education with the printing of multi-layer PCBs, as well as resistors, capacitors, antennas, sensors and think film transistors. These technologies allow companies to reduce the size, thickness and weight or their end products as well as bring designs to market more quickly and keep sensitive design information in-house.

2.00pm

Designing for Ultra-Low Power Operation with Modern Radios
Ray Keefe, MD– Successful Endeavours

With the advent of new low power radio standards such as LoRa, Sigfox, Wirepas, NB-IoT and CAT-M1 it is now possible to consider deploying battery operated devices with 10 year battery life. But to do this you have to rethink power budgets and design decisions. This session will show the actual design processes and outcomes for a battery powered pulse water meter using 2 different radio standards including component selection, battery selection, power management, radio use and the calculated battery life based on a typical use case.

3.00pm

Electronics Protection: New Generation Conformal Coatings for the Harshest Environments
Beth Turner (UK) Development Chemist for Electrolube - Coatings Division - HK Wentworth

A presentation covering the different types of coatings available, how to select the most suitable product for your application, examples of collaborative solutions for a range of applications and examples of how Electrolube works closely with customers – technically - the level of protection that different coatings provide and how to speed up production with next generation of UV cure products

4.00pm

 Industry 4.0: A Look Behind the Hype
Rod Hendricks PTC Engineering Solutions Manager – Leap Australia

Leap will shares it’s insights from the perspective of an implementer of key elements of i4.0 over last decade. Robotics, Simulation, System Integration, Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Additive Manufacture, Mixed Reality and Big Data.
This presentation will illustrate the lessons learnt from the pioneers that has enabled adaption of Smart Business & Smart Manufacturing to the unique requirement of Australia. It will also highlight the reasons why companies are now taking action and how they’re disrupting the market.

Electronics Protection: Coatings vs Resins for Protection Purposes
Beth Turner (UK) Development Chemist for Electrolube - Coatings Division - HK Wentworth

Which is better to protect my PCB, a coating or a resin? and What is a coating and a resin? Electrolube will provide attendees with a deeper understanding of when it is better to use an encapsulation resin rather than a coating, the difference between these two mediums and also learn more about a new generation 2K conformal coating that encompasses the same features as a resin but in a coating format.

Innovation - A New Look at a Well Established Concept
Ray Keefe, MD - Successful Endeavours

Innovation is one of those go to words today. Everything has to be either innovative or disruptive. So:
- What does that actually mean?
- Is there more than one type of innovation?
- Is disruption the only form of breakthrough?
- How can you take advantage of these ideas when planning your next product?
