Reading time ( words)

The SMTA proudly announces upcoming offerings of SMT Processes and Six Sigma Green Belt Certification. The SMTA Certification program is unique as it recognizes and certifies the entire SMT assembly process at an engineering level. 

Each SMTA Certification program is a three-day offering consisting of a 1.5-day refresher workshop on topics in SMT Processes or Six Sigma/Greenbelt.  The program concludes on days two and three with an open and closed book examination.

Upcoming SMT Certification Dates and Locations:

May 9-11, 2016 (SMT Processes)

Toronto, Canada

Co-located with ICSR Conference

May 24-26, 2016 (SMT Processes)

Queretaro, Mexico

September 27-29, 2016 (SMT Processes or Six Sigma/Green Belt)

Rosemont, IL

Co-located with SMTA International Conference

October 3-5, 2016 (SMT Processes)

Guadalajara, Mexico

Co-located with Guadalajara Expo and Forum

November 29 - December 1, 2016 (SMT Processes)

SMTA Certification is intended for manufacturing and process engineers. Additionally, production, design, test and quality engineering personnel, as well as SMT assembly managers who want to confirm their current competence at a fundamental level of overall process technology should consider participating.

In addition to the scheduled offerings, SMTA provides in-house certification which cuts registration costs by 25%, reduces travel expenses and allows companies to have multiple employees trained and certified at their own facility.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Business Practices Drive the Smart Factory, Not the Other Way Around (Part 1)

03/19/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In Part 1 of this conversation, Sagi Reuven— business development manager at Mentor, a Siemens Business—makes the case that smart factory implementations must start with traditional process analysis and improvement before the data capture process is useful. He also covers how sometimes the key to utilizing Industry 4.0 comes from a change in mindset rather than a drastic change or investment in new equipment or processes.

IPC APEX EXPO 2020 Attendees Speak: Camille Sybert

"There’s a need for flexible solutions, so people are trying to make the most of the equipment that they buy, and they want to have the equipment that’s able to be flexible in scale with what it is that they’re looking for," said Camille Sybert of Nordson Electronics Solutions. "We have customers asking about future capabilities that they might not be ready for right now, but they want to know that it’s something that can be easily integrated into their processes in the future, as they’re in a position to better be able to do so."
