Schleuniger, a leading international manufacturer of wire processing machines, annouced that as of January 2015, all of the company’s technical service personnel and direct sales representatives are IPC/WHMA-A-620 certified. IPC/WHMA-A-620 is the first consensus standard for cable and wire harness fabrication and installation and has been embraced by original equipment manufacturers and electronics manufacturing services companies worldwide. A joint project of IPC (Institute of Printed Circuits) and WHMA (Wire Harness Manufacturers Association), IPC/WHMA-A-620 has become the industry standard against which quality is measured.
Problems within cable and wire harness assemblies can be hard to diagnose. Companies that adhere to the IPC/WHMA-A-620 standard have well-defined criteria for what is acceptable and unacceptable and therefore often see reduced problems and significant improvements in quality.
“Schleuniger already has a reputation for high-quality products and service. Taking the next step of IPC/WHMA-A-620 Certification for our sales and service staff provides us the ability to advise customers in this important quality standard and better support their needs,” says Darren Teasck, President and Managing Director, Schleuniger, Inc. “The certification of our sales and technical service teams is just one example of how Schleuniger is dedicated to being not just an industry supplier, but an industry resource for our customers.”
If you have IPC/WHMA-A-620 requirements, Schleuniger is available to help.
