Reading time ( words)

The SMTA Capital Chapter will host a Chapter Tutorial Program on March 15, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, in Rockville, Maryland. Phil Zarrow of ITM consulting will present "Understanding and Implementing Best Practices in Electronic Assembly Processes".

You have the responsibility and resources to improve the productivity of an assembly operation. What do you do? This course drives awareness and solutions to the adverse impact that non-optimal assembly practices and processes have on the product quality and financial success of electronic assembly businesses. A comprehensive perspective on problem issues is developed for the most currently critical electronic assembly process, materials (both existing and emerging), equipment, procedures, and methods. Most importantly, practical solutions are presented. Key issues that consistently result in assembly problems and low yields are identified and resolved. This seminar is intended for anyone involved in directing, developing, managing and/or executing assembly line operations including managers, line supervisors and line engineers involved in manufacturing, design and quality engineering. 

Topics will cover best practices for the following processes: assembly, solder paste printing, pick and place, reflow soldering, wave soldering, selective soldering, and cleaning vs No-Clean considerations. The event will conclude with a Q&A session with the presenter.  

Who Should Attend:

This course is intended for Manufacturing, Process, Design, Test and Quality Engineering personnel as well as Management who are involved in the production of surface mount or mixed technology assemblies.

Location:

Best Western Plus Hotel & Suites, 1251 W Montgomery Ave, Rockville, MD 20850

AOI Programs with a Magic Click

12/12/2018 | Jens Kokott and Matthias Muller, Goepel electronic
Production runs of 10–1,000 assemblies are everyday life for an EMS provider. But what if important staff are on vacation, and component deliveries are very much delayed? And then the customer is determined to have AOI, but the layout of the assembly is highly customized, making it virtually impossible to use complete library entries. Here's how AOI programs can help you in these scenarios.
