WHMA/IPC Offer Wire Harness Operator Training at M-EXPO


Reading time ( words)

The Wiring Harness Manufacturer’s Association (WHMA)/IPC will offer a three-day, in-person Wire Harness Assembly for Operators (WHO) training course at M-EXPO Wire Processing Technology Expo (M-EXPO), September 27-29, 2022.

The WHO course introduces operators to the key tools, materials, and processes required to consistently produce quality wire harness assemblies. This course is designed to encompass the entire wire harness assembly process, including a customizable selection of modules to address the current needs and future goals of operators and organizations. The course’s seven mandatory modules will be covered in this training, enabling participants to earn a qualified IPC wire harness assembly operator certificate.

Modules include introduction to wire harness assembly; safety; engineering documentation; materials and components; tools and equipment; wire preparation and processing; and inspection and training.

“IPC learning specialists teamed up with industry experts to provide the knowledge and skills that every operator needs to build quality wires and cable harnesses,” said Carlos Plaza, IPC senior director of education. “We are pleased to be able to offer on-site WHO training at M-EXPO at a discounted price.” 

The cost for the three day-course at M-EXPO is $25 for IPC/WHMA members and $40 for nonmembers. The WHO training course will be taught in Spanish. Additional information on the WHO training course including description and course content can be found at https://training.ipc.org/product/electronics-assembly-operators. To register for the WHO training course at M-EXPO or the WHO overview webinar on August 9 (free), visit www.mexpowire.com/register/. The webinar will provide information on IPC’s new suite of courses and materials for wire harness operators.

Book Excerpt: 'The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Solder Defects'

06/07/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Solder defects in surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly have been an issue for decades. Further, the combined challenges of Pb-free soldering and ever-increasing miniaturization have resulted in new or exacerbated defects in electronics assembly, but there are proven ways to avoid defects. This book will be especially beneficial to PCB assemblers in improving their assembly processes and the reliability of the end-product, eliminating field failures, and reducing costs.

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.
