Joe O’Neil, CEO of Green Circuits and IPC Board member, invited IPC into Green Circuits’ San Jose, California, facility to shoot footage for three new IPC videos including: selective soldering, print reading, and soldering iron tip care.
“It was a busy week, and everyone at Green Circuits was most gracious and accommodating. Staff went way out of their way to help us and made us feel welcome and fully supported,” said Mark Pritchard, IPC video producer. “It worked out perfectly, in that they had multiple machines and we were able to shoot everything we needed to show without holding up production.”
Hai Ma, Andy Nguyen and Michael Nguyen of Green Circuits in San Jose help create new IPC Training video on Selective Soldering.
Michael Nguyen hosted the production, with support from Ty Le and Shawn Pham. Machine technicians Hai Ma and Andy Nguyen provided the technical simulations.
IPC sincerely appreciates this contribution to the educational advancement of our industry.
