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.”

PCB Pad Repair Techniques

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.
