 Vision Engineering Launches FREE Electronics Academy Webinar Series to help identity and rectify PCB

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 3 part webinar is focused on improving quality and reducing costs through improving the inspection process.

The series began on June 16th 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 explained 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 29th Counterfeit Component Inspection & Detection was broadcasted. Production, quality and purchasing teams learnt how to inspect conventional and surface mount devices to identify counterfeit component and avoid expensive consequences. In this webinar Bob illustrated 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 3 part series closes on July 21st 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 Bob Willis is a globally-recognized expert in surface mount and area array technology, providing training and consultancy to electronics manufacturers worldwide for over 30 years. Bob regularly speaks at international events, providing expert knowledge to improve skills and knowledge for electronics production staff and engineers.
