The SMTA Capital Chapter to Host Second Meeting of the Year on May 16th at DfR Solutions

Apr 29, 2013

The SMTA Capital Chapter is pleased to announce its upcoming meeting on May 16, 2013, from 5:30 pm until 8 pm at DfR Solutions’ brand new facility in Beltsville, Maryland. The focus of this second chapter meeting of 2013 will be “Design for Manufacturing: Challenges & Opportunities” presented by Cheryl Tulkoff, ASQ CRE, a senior member of the technical staff at DfR Solutions.

In the electronics industry, the quality and reliability of any product is highly dependent upon the capability of the manufacturing supplier, regardless of whether it is a contractor or a captured shop. Manufacturing issues are one of the top reasons that companies fail to meet warranty expectations, which can result in severe financial pain and eventual loss of market share. What a surprising number of engineers and managers fail to realize is that focusing on processes addresses only part of the issue. Design plays a critical role in the success or failure of manufacturing and assembly.
Designing printed boards today is more difficult than ever before because of the increased lead free process temperature requirements and associated changes required in manufacturing. Not only has the density of the electronic assembly increased, but many changes are taking place throughout the entire supply chain regarding the use of hazardous materials and the requirements for recycling. Much of the change is due to the European Union (EU) Directives regarding these issues. The RoHS and REACH directives have caused many suppliers to the industry to rethink their materials and processes. Thus, everyone designing or producing electronics has been or will be affected.
This presentation provides insight into the best practices in design for manufacturing as well as areas where design plays an important role in the manufacturing process.

The evening is scheduled as follows:

5:30-5:45 pm Registration
5:45-6:45 pm Networking and Dinner
