IPC standards provide customers with a clear benchmark for acceptability of Electronic Assemblies, broken down into classes. As standard, EMS produces all assemblies to Class 2 —with Class 3 available on demand to suit customer requirements.
EMS staff members are trained as Certified IPC Specialists, provided by STEM Training.
As part of EMS’ commitment to continuous improvement and quality, we certify staff to IPC-A-610 (Acceptability of Electronics Assemblies). This standard provides:
- An industry-developed and approved program;
- Training, certification and instructional materials based;
- A certification which demonstrates commitment to customer requirements and greatly assists any company dedicated to ISO-9000 or other quality assurance initiatives.
As part of EMS’ commitment to continuous improvement and quality, EMS certifies staff to IPC J-STD-001 (Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies). This standard provides:
- Industry-developed and approved hands-on solder training;
- A certification program that helps to enhance employee skills and performance;
- Individuals with a portable credential that recognises their soldering skills and understanding of this internationally recognised standard.
In addition, if your company uses J-STD-001 — or is considering its adoption — you can use the certification program to address the standard’s training requirement.
As part of EMS’ commitment to continuous improvement and quality, EMS certifies staff to IPC/WHMA-A-620 (Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies).
This standard provides acceptability criteria for crimped, mechanically secured and soldered interconnection and the corresponding lacing/restraining criteria associated with cable and harness assemblies.
