Reading time ( words)

IPC’s Validation Services Program has awarded the first IPC-J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML), in South America, to Grupo Mirgor, Rio Grande, Argentina.

Eduardo Koroch, Mirgor’s industrial director engaged with IPC staff at IPC APEX EXPO in March 2016. From this meeting, he returned to his factory and began an extensive training program around the IPC standards. Thus, Mirgor successfully completed an intensive audit to IPC J-STD-001, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies and IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies. The facility exceeded the requirements for the electronics industry’s rigorous classification, Class 2, which is intended for dedicated service electronic products. As a result, the company will be listed as an IPC-trusted source capable of manufacturing in accordance with industry best practices. Mirgor and other trusted sources of supply can be found on IPC’s QML/QPL (Qualified Product Listing) database.

“Upon returning to our facility from IPC APEX EXPO 2016, we established a training program, including advanced training for five instructors and training for 20 specialists,” said Koroch. “As a result of the training to IPC standards we successfully completed the IPC QML audit and substantially improved our processes, the quality of the products we manufacture, the mastery of processes through knowledge and, above all, the motivation of the staff who participated in this whole process.”

“Mirgor has differentiated itself from the competition by achieving this certification. They have proven their dedication to consistent high quality by complying with IPC standards and this positions the company for success,” said Randy Cherry, IPC director of Validation Services. “We are pleased to recognize Mirgor at the first company in South America to earn QML certification to IPC-J-STD-001/610.”

While the value of the electronic systems in a modern vehicle typically exceeds 20% of the total vehicle cost, many estimate that this value will exceed 35% within the next five years. With the increased adoption of electronic vehicles and the development of the internet of things (IoT)—which has brought us driverless cars like those being tested by Google in California and BMW on the roads of Bavaria—the future of this industry is starkly different from that of the 1970s when electronic fuel injection systems were first introduced to mainstream production.

E-waste encompasses a myriad of "unseen" metals, semi-metals, and chemical compounds that are found inside circuit boards, wires, and electrical connections. If not handled correctly, chemicals—such as cadmium, barium, lithium, lead, mercury, and beryllium—can present a significant health risk through direct contact, the inhalation of toxic fumes, or the build-up of toxins in water, soil, and food products.
