Reading time ( words)

Specialized Coating Services' Billerica site is now ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 and ITAR certified. Specialized Coating Services provides contract services of conformal coating, encapsulating (potting), sub-assembly and ruggedization of PCBs used in aerospace, automotive, commercial electronics, energy, medical, military, retail and space applications.

“It is our goal to meet all certification requirements required by the industries that we serve,” stated Rick Ramirez, President & Co-Founder of Specialized Coating Services. “Our newly opened Billerica site is on track to receive its AS9100D/ISO 9001 certification by mid December 2018.”

ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 protection of electrical and electronic parts, assemblies and equipment (excluding electrically initiated explosive devices) - This standard provides administrative and technical requirements for establishing, implementing and maintaining an ESD Control Program to protect electrical or electronic parts, assemblies and equipment susceptible to ESD damage from human body model (HBM) discharges greater than or equal to 100 volts.

Damage of electrical and electronic systems and components from electrostatic discharge (ESD) represents a significant source of waste for the electronics industry, and can compromise the quality and usefulness of electrical and electronic products. A formal ESD facility control program can help reduce the incidence of component damage resulting from ESD, increase production throughput rates and minimize the likelihood of defect products reaching the market. Certification to ANSI/ESD S20.20 serves as an independent verification of the quality and effectiveness of an ESD control program.

International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) control the export and import of defense-related articles and services on the United States Munitions List (USML). Specialized Coating Services successfully demonstrated its ability to comply and has registered with the State Department’s DDTC.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
