Schlötter’s new branch office in Taiwan

Dr.-Ing. Max Schlötter GmbH & Co. KG opened a new branch office in Taipei (Taiwan) in December 2023. The expansion into the Taiwanese market underlines Schlötter’s ongoing commitment to the region. Schlötter’s products have been sold in Taiwan with great success for more than 30 years. In particular, Schlötter’s high-performance copper electrolytes for the PCB industry have established themselves as reliable and innovative solutions. After Schlötter’s long-standing distribution partner withdrew, Schlötter decided to establish its own branch office and offer its entire product range. The opening of a branch in Taiwan enables Schlötter to be even closer to its customers and to offer even faster and more efficient support. The branch has its own laboratory so that employees can carry out analyses for customers. The decision in favour of Taipei as a location underlines not only the economic importance of Taiwan, but also Schlötter’s confidence in the promising prospects of the Taiwanese market. With this new presence, Schlötter strengthens its position as a strategic partner for the electronics and PCB industry in the region.

The year 2023 already marked a significant milestone for Schlötter when the company had its own stand at the TPCA Show (Taiwan Printed Circuit Association) for the first time. The show provided an excellent platform to present the latest innovations and developments to the industry and deepen relationships with local customers.

The director of the new branch office is Nick Yang, who has more than 30 years of professional experience in the electronics and PCB industry and is very familiar with the market.

Schlötter on TPCA 2023

The TPCA Show of the Taiwan Printed Circuit Association (TPCA) is one of the most important events in the electronics industry. The annual show presents the latest advances, products and services in the PCB industry and attracts professionals and companies from all over the world. The products of Dr.-Ing. Max Schlötter GmbH & Co. KG have been offered with great success in Taiwan for decades. This year, for the first time, Schlötter will have its own stand (Stand N, 519) at the TPCA Show, which will be held in Taipei from 25-27 October 2023. The Geislingen-based company is currently in the process of establishing a branch office, the Schlötter Taiwan Branch (愛爾蘭商施洛特有限公司台灣分公司 in Taipei. The branch will start operations at the end of the year. At the fair, Schlötter will present a range of current and new products for the PCB and electronics industry:

  • The cleaners SLOTOCLEAN S 20, SLOTOCLEAN 40 and SLOTOCLEAN S 80, which have an excellent cleaning and wetting effect and are an important basic requirement for filling blind vias.
  • The micro etches SLOTOCLEAN S 40 and SLOTETCH 5840, which combine deoxidation with a defined etch rate depending on the application.
  • The copper baths SLOTOCOUP SF 50, SLOTOCOUP SF 80, which are used with great success for filling and metallising structures with different geometries (conductor tracks, blind vias, through holes). From current research and development, the new copper bath SLOTOCOUP SF 100 for further specialised applications will be presented.
  • The copper bath SLOTOCOUP PRT 3300 (Pulse Reverse) achieves conformal coating of high aspect ratios.
  • The tin baths SLOTOTIN 20-1, SLOTOTIN 40 and the new bisphenol-free tin bath SLOTOTIN MT 1460 exhibit high hiding power and etch resistance even at low coating thicknesses. At the same time, the deposited tin coatings have a very low tendency to whisker formation due to their grain structure and low carbon content.
  • Newly developed processes and an optimised process sequence for ENIG (Electroless Nickel Gold) with excellent bath stabilities and long service lives.
  • as well as a physical test bench developed together with iChemAnalytics to investigate whisker formation and tribological properties of coatings. The test stand is a world first and the tests can be carried out at different temperatures and in the absence of oxygen.

Schlötter also focuses on the CO2 footprint and explains the CO2 footprint of the products it offers and how CO2 emissions can be minimised when using Schlötter processes. The company has set itself the goal of becoming CO2 neutral by 2030 and would also like to support its customers and partners on this path.

We look forward to seeing you at stand N-519.
