Using IPC standards throughout the entire process, companies can ensure that they can demonstrate better performance and enhanced life of their products as well as compliance with industry requirements, says Advanced Reworking Technology. The company is the only IPC Accredited Training Partner (IPC Training Centre) in the UK authorised to teach both of the IPC Space Addendum training courses for J-STD-001 and IPC-A-620.
IPC standards are accepted worldwide as the pinnacle manufacturing standards for the electronics industry and can be adopted for every stage of the process from design to assembly and even handling and shipping.
Investing in IPC training and certification programmes can help a company demonstrate that it considers rigorous quality control practices very important.
Individuals can become certified to six key IPC standards: IPC 6012, Qualification and Performance Specification for Rigid Printed Boards; IPC-A-600, Acceptability of (Bare) Printed Boards; IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies; IPC/WHMA-A-620, Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies; J-STD-001, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies and IPC-7711/7721, Rework, Modification and Repair of Printed Boards and Electronic Assemblies.
The company works with IPC, sitting on numerous IPC Standards Development and Training committees. “This gives us the added advantage and skills required to not just teach the latest requirements but fully understand the changes to the technical standards and associated training courses,” says managing director, Debbie Wade.
