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An approximate 300-word technical conference abstract summarizing original and previously unpublished work covering case histories, research and discoveries must be submitted.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.

Tips to Improve Soldering Tip Life and Reduce Cost

10/10/2018 | Thermaltronics
Whether in production, or repair and rework, the cost of soldering iron tips can be easily overlooked, but with today’s requirement for higher temperatures in lead-free solder applications, the consumption of tips has dramatically increased. This fact, combined with changes in tip design to meet the higher thermal load requirements, has also resulted in escalating tip costs, making tip care a high priority.

What SMT Component Shortages Mean for Design and Manufacturing Engineers

09/13/2018 | Russell Poppe, JJS Manufacturing
Much has been written about the increasing shortages of electronic components such as MLCCs, chip resistors and other semiconductor devices. And the manufacturing industry is now seeing price increases and greatly extended lead times. It seems the situation is likely to get rapidly worse rather than better. What can we do? Read on.
