Scanfil’s Sieradz Factory to Go into 100% Fossil-free Electricity

Reading time ( words)

Scanfil’s Sieradz factory in Poland signed an agreement about switching to 100% fossil-free electricity. As of 1 January, 2022 Sieradz factory will be CO2 neutral in its electricity.

Sieradz factory is one of Scanfil’s biggest factories and has an annual electrical energy consumption of about 3,700 MWh. If this amount of energy would be produced with coal, it would create nearly 3,850 tons of CO2 emissions.

“By changing the energy source of our electricity, we can make a significant environmental impact,” states Scanfil’s Mats Lindblad, Director Quality Systems.” I am happy to see that we are moving fast and reducing our environmental impact.”

Scanfil and all of its factories are committed to improving its operations also from an environmental point of view. Sieradz is now the fourth factory within the Scanfil factory network that will be using only fossil-free electricity.

“The eagerness to do environmental actions are high in our production sites. All our factories are contributing to the Scanfil’s common goal, and we will reach our goals earlier than planned,” Mats Lindblad continues.

Scanfil has set science-based targets for significant reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and is committed to reducing its carbon footprint by 35% from 2020 baseline to 2030, assuming that its organic growth remains at the current level. The company also commits that its energy consumption will be at least 50% fossil-free by 2030.

With the current pace, Scanfil will reach its target already before 2030.

At I-Connect007, we are proud to once again sponsor the STEM Outreach Program at the upcoming IPC APEX EXPO 2020. Another way we support our youth is by sharing the stories of young people who are doing amazing things. Dylan Nguyen is a great student, musician, and creative thinker. Recently, he shared with me the details of his school science fair project, “Kite: Powering the Future,” which solved a problem that he faced. Dylan is a leader with a bright future, and the world is lucky to have kids like him.

X-Ray Inspection of Lead and Lead-Free Solder Joints

07/31/2017 | Glen Thomas, Ph.D., and Bill Cardoso, Ph.D., Creative Electron Inc.
As aerospace companies consider the shift to lead-free solder alloys and glues, concerns have been raised about whether their current X-ray inspection and quality-control procedures will still be valid. With lead solder, joints are easily interpreted by the operator or the system imaging software because lead provides excellent image contrasts due to relatively high X-ray absorption compared to that of PCB and component materials. Will this hold true as they shift to lead-free solder compounds?

Achieving Repeatable, Consistent Control over the Selective Soldering Production Process

02/01/2017 | Gerjan Diepstraten, Vitronics Soltec B.V.
Selective soldering is a process with more than 100 different parameters that may impact soldering performance. A robust selective soldering process should have a wide process window that is able to handle variations in material quality. In this paper, critical process parameters are discussed as well as methods that can be used to widen the process window.
