Amerway Earns ISO 9001 Quality Certification


Reading time ( words)

Amerway Inc. recently has been awarded ISO 9001 quality certification.

"We're pleased and proud to have earned this coveted ISO quality certification, because it recognizes our achievements as we strive to be the best solder manufacturer in North America," says Amerway President Terry Buck. "Amerway provides superior product purity, overall quality, and service. Through proprietary refining techniques, Amerway produces the finest solder in the world."

The drive for ISO certification was spearheaded by Tyler Port, Quality/Project Manager, who was brought aboard, initially, specifically to achieve the ISO 9001 goal.

"Although the effort began in April of 2016, I was hired to complete the ISO certification when I returned from a scheduled military deployment," Tyler says. "Prior to joining the military, I had worked for Amerway for more than three years. During my deployment, I researched and learned everything I could regarding ISO certification, so that when I returned, I immediately got to work."

Based on his prior experience with Amerway, as well as his research into ISO, his efforts enabled Amerway to achieve ISO 9001 certification in the space of five months.

PCB Pad Repair Techniques

01/08/2018 | Bob Wettermann, BEST Inc.
There are a variety of reasons behind pads getting "lifted" completely or partially from the laminate of a PCB. Per the just revised IPC-A-610 Revision G, a defect for all three classes occurs when the land is lifted up one or more pad thicknesses. Lifted pads can occur when a device has been improperly removed or there is a manufacturing defect in the board construction. In any case, as with any repair, the ultimate decision on the ability to repair the pad lies with the customer.

The Effect of Area Shape and Area Ratio on Solder Paste Printing Performance

12/28/2017 | Stefan Härter, et al.
The ongoing miniaturization trend in the SMT production induces new challenges and highly integrated systems. In passive components, the miniaturization leads to the introduction of the EIA size 01005 or smaller. Despite numerous publications in this field already addressing the printing of such devices, a defined wholly optimized process remains unsolved and inspires further novel research ideas on this topic.
