Kester to host lead-free RoHS Assembly Seminar in Chicago
Jan 28, 2005
Kester announces that it will hold seminars throughout 2005 titled, "Project 2005: Achieving Lead-free RoHS Assembly." The fourth seminar in the series will be held Tuesday, March 15, 2005, at the Marriott Residence Inn in Rosemont, IL.
As the July 1, 2006 deadline for the European WEEE and RoHS directives approach, many products will be lead-free and also free of environmentally unfriendly chemicals specified for elimination in the RoHS document.
Kester has been working to prepare companies for the upcoming change to lead free. The Kester Project 2005: Lead-free RoHS Assembly is designed specifically to assist companies in transitioning reliably without false starts. The series brings together the information that will save companies many engineering hours of research and will give what is needed to achieve lead-free and RoHS compliancy rapidly.
The seminar begins with a continental breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Six hours of presentation, ideas and discussion covering the topics such as lead-free and RoHS directive overview, impact to a company's operations, equipment changes and process modifications will follow.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Additionally, Kester experts will be available for questions and answers during all breaks. Attendees will receive the Lead-free Assembly Technical Manual containing presentation materials and detailed technical white papers; a subscription to the Lead-free Connection Newsletter, provided quarterly; and valuable process information and technical tips to achieve solid lead-free processes.
