SMTA workshop on implementing Lead-free
Aug 11, 2004
In a new full-day SMTA workshop, Implementing Lead-free Assembly at Your Facility, noted process expert and holder of the prestigious SMTA Founder's Award Ronald C. Lasky, Ph.D., PE, Indium Corporation senior technologist and Dartmouth College visiting professor, delivers information, experience, and knowledge on establishing a lead-free process.
The workshop is intended for managers, process engineers, process technicians, and other professionals that have an interest in establishing a lead-free assembly process at their factory, and it will be held November 4 at Reptron Manufacturing Services in Tampa, FL, and December 9 at Guidant Corporation in St. Paul, MN.
While there are many workshops on lead-free assembly, this may be the only one that focuses on the "how to" of implementing lead-free at your factory. It covers all of the issues, including everything from PWB finishes, components, alloys, and SMT processes to an actual implementation of a lead-free process performed by Motorola that is currently used in assembling about 1 million cellular phones world-wide per month. The workshop concludes with a section on establishing your lead-free implementation plan.
Due to the overwhelming success of and following demand for this SMTA Workshop, the SMTA is planning to sponsor it at various locations. Contact SMTA director of education Kristin Nafstad with your interest in having the workshop visit a location near you: 952-920-7682 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
