Vision Engineering has teamed up with industry expert Bob Willis to broadcast a free Electronics Academy Webinar Series aimed at identifying the issues affecting PCB/SMT assembly and the challenges of achieving Zero Defect Manufacture. The three-part webinar is focused on improving quality and reducing costs through improving the inspection process.
The series begins on June 16 with Solder Joint Inspection & Process Defects. During this webinar, participants will learn how to minimize inspection and process defects, identify common joint failures, causes, cures and corrective actions. Bob will explain the best ways to inspect solder joints on conventional and surface mount assemblies with reference to international standards (e.g. IPC 610 and IPC J-STD-001).
On June 29, Counterfeit Component Inspection & Detection will be broadcasted. Production, quality and purchasing teams will learn how to inspect conventional and surface mount devices to identify counterfeit component and avoid expensive consequences. In this webinar, Bob will illustrate the most common issues faced by these teams, how to test parts and demonstrate the importance of photographic documentation to provide reference standards for the future.
The three-part series closes on July 21 with Conformal Coating Inspection & Coating Faults. The use of conformal coating is growing in popularity. Regardless of application method, either manual or automated inspection is required in most applications, carried out under normal or UV light, with reference to international standards. During this webinar, Bob will cover the inspection of coatings, setting up of inspection standards, as well as the common process defects and corrective actions
