The topic, “Changes of Tin Application in Electronics Assembly Industry”, will be presented on November 23rd by Valentijn Van Velthoven, Regional Vice President of Asia Pacific for Alpha Assembly Solutions, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses. “Considering the change of macro environments, I would like to present the link between the macro trends we see in our everyday world and how they impact solders, how they are being used, what drives the markets, and ultimately, how they affect demand for solder and alloys,” said Valentijn. His presentation will specifically focus on Photovoltaic, Power Electronics and LED industries.
