Day 1 of IPC-SMTA Conference to Feature Cleaning & Conformal Coating Workshops


Reading time ( words)

Industry-leading associations IPC and SMTA jointly announce the High-Reliability Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference, scheduled to take place November 13-15, 2018 at Chicago Marriott, Schaumburg, Illinois. The conference is focused on the cleanliness of highly dense electronic assemblies to achieve quality and reliability within the stated in-field environment.  

The first day of the conference features Cleaning and Conformal Coating Workshops.

Doug Pauls, principal materials and process engineer from Rockwell Collins, will teach a Workshop on “IPC J-STD-001G Amendment 1 – Cleanliness Requirements” Workshop. The industry as a whole is seeking clarification on how to go about developing “Objective Evidence” that they are meeting ionic cleanliness requirements. Doug’s workshop will teach methodologies that will help assemblers, CMs, and OEMs address these changing cleanliness requirements.

Jason Keeping, project manager, Ruggedized Electronics Sector from Celestica Inc., will teach “Conformal Coating Best Practices” workshop. Jason will explain application methods and coating advances for protection and reliability of circuit card assemblies. As component density increases, the need for coating advancements and water tolerance materials has increased.

Come learn about these valuable lessons and more at the IPC/SMTA Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference.

How to Minimize Quoting Time and Increase Accuracy in EMS Production

03/30/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
New product introductions (NPIs) and customization have been increasing rapidly over the past few years—with the results that the already-small profit margins in electronics assembly are shrinking even further. Fifteen years ago, the PCB was the product. Today, most products are a system, with multiple PCBs, cables, and enclosures. Many manufacturers want to provide turn-key products that have multiple BOMs, making the assembly process even more complicated.
