IPC Seeks Papers for Wire Harness Manufacturing Conference


Reading time ( words)

IPC—Association Connecting Electronics Industries and the Wiring Harness Manufacturer's Association (WHMA) invites engineers, researchers, academics, technical experts and industry leaders to submit abstracts for IPC/WHMA European Wire Harness Manufacturing Conference to be held October 3–4, 2017 at the Novotel Convention & Wellness Roissy CDG in Paris, France.  

Expert papers and presentations are being sought in the following areas:

  • IPC/WHMA-A-620 implementation
  • Quality requirements
  • Overview on the cabling and interconnection industry and contractors
  • Reliability issues and failure analysis
  • Overview on standards for no solder interconnection cables and counterfeiting
  • Standards and training
  • Connectors
  • Electrical testing
  • Tooling
  • Process equipment
  • Calibration
  • Wire harness troubleshooting
  • Connector interconnection environmental testing
  • Case studies on A-620 success

An approximate 300-word technical conference abstract summarizing original and previously unpublished work covering case histories, research and discoveries must be submitted. The submission should describe significant results from experiments and case studies, emphasize new techniques, discuss trends of interest and contain appropriate technical test results. Final selected presentations will be limited to 30 minutes.

"Wire harness manufacturers are on the front line of technical challenges. IPC and WHMA are organizing our first European wire harness conference to identify some of these challenges, explain IPC/WHMA-A-620 in depth and how the standard can help manufacturers with their business," said David Bergman, IPC vice president of standards and technology.

Technical conference paper abstracts are due April 21, 2017. To submit an abstract or course proposal, contact David Bergman at DavidBergman@ipc.org.

Impact of Stencil Foil Type on Solder Paste Transfer Efficiency for Laser-cut SMT Stencils (Part 1)

04/24/2019 | Greg Smith, BlueRing Stencils
As innovation and demand continue to drive miniaturization in electronics, manufacturers face the constant challenge of assembling smaller and smaller components with repeatable processes and high yields. Stencil printing is the first step in the PWB assembly process, and improvements to the SMT stencil can significantly improve yields, especially for more challenging miniaturized products. The primary inputs in the SMT stencil manufacturing process are material, equipment, and processes, and by continuously improving these inputs, the overall print process is improved. The most important material in the process of manufacturing SMT stencils is the foil itself. This article investigates foil types used with the goal of determining which foils provide the best print performance.

Tips & Tricks: Water Contamination and Flux Expiry

04/17/2019 | Jason Fullerton, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Solder joints that form properly are not expected to exhibit reduced reliability. However, a higher number of defects created tends to lead to a higher chance that defective connections escape detection through inspection and functional testing, and that’s not a risk to be taken lightly.

Tips & Tricks: Humidity Level for Electronics Assembly

04/10/2019 | Jason Fullerton, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Low relative humidity (RH) can allow for higher static charges to build on objects. It can also affect solder pastes, especially OR-class pastes, and this can reduce print performance and stencil life. Read on to find out what level of RH you need for your assembly facility.
