The all-day event will begin at 9:30 a.m. with coffee and delegate registration, and is expected to conclude at 4 p.m. The workshop will include presentations from soldering consumable suppliers, inspection equipment suppliers and from Manufacturing Technology Centre staff working with the SMART Group.

Topics presented include:

  • What is a void? What agreed definitions can we use?
  • What are the root causes of voiding? What can we do to prevent these?

  • How does voiding impact the performance and reliability of your products?

This event is ideally suited to any member of staff working in electronics manufacturing and design. Managers also will benefit from a fuller understanding of the issues currently being experienced in our industry.

The price for the workshop is £85 plus VAT for SMART Group Members and £175 for non-members. The cost for delegates includes tea and coffee, lunch, and full access to copies of all the presentation material immediately after the event. Additionally, there is a limited opportunity to book a tabletop exhibition space at this workshop. Each space booked allows for the cost of one delegate attending.
