Montréal, Québec, Canada, 2011/06/15 - IPC-A-610E Common Inspection Errors (DVD-71C) has been developed to clarify the most common misunderstandings and misinterpretations when using the IPC-A-610 criteria to inspect circuit board assemblies.
Electronics.ca Publications, the electronics industry market research and knowledge network, announces the availability of a new DVD-based Training Certification program entitled "IPC-A-610E Common Inspection Errors".
IPC-A-610E Common Inspection Errors (DVD-71C) has been developed to clarify the most common misunderstandings and misinterpretations when using the IPC-A-610 criteria to inspect circuit board assemblies. Without an industry standard like IPC-A-610, each company would be using an internal specification. Our industry would not have a common language and the consistent criteria required to properly evaluate electronic assemblies.
Technical content for this educational program was provided by IPC-A-610 Master Instructors Floyd Bertagnolli of STM Training, Ray Cirimele of STI Electronics, Inc., and Marg Drouin of BAE Systems. After years of working with companies in Electronics Assembly, there appear to be certain common "misinterpretations" of the IPC-A-610 acceptance criteria. These misinterpretations can cost your company time, money, and even your reputation for quality.
The new DVD-71C examines the most common IPC-A-610 inspection errors including: misinterpreting inspector responsibilities, using improper board-side criteria, misunderstanding minimum electrical clearance, rejecting excessive wetting angles, requiring complete vertical fill, misinterpreting through hole part clearance, misapplying gull wing lead style criteria, misidentifying bottom termination components, rejecting measles and treating billboarding as an instant defect.
Experts in electronics assembly agree that the most typical inspection errors are not only avoidable, they are predictable and preventable.
