Factory Dummy Components Are Cost Effective For Cpk Studies

Jun 03, 2008

LOS ALAMITOS, CA � June 3, 2008 �Practical dummy components are commonly used in Cpk studies for measuring process consistency regarding the components� mechanical aspects. Practical Components� Practical Dummy Components are manufactured from the same factory production lines as live components but with a dummy die inside. They are not scrap or rejected components nor are they homemade FR4 �dummies.� They are made of the same materials on the same manufacturing lines and have the same size, thermal and soldering properties as the live equivalent.

Factory-made Dummy Components have the same dimensional stability and thermal properties as their �live� counterparts without the associated costs.

To reduce measurement variations, high-quality factory-made dummy components should be used for Cpk studies. Practical Components� factory �fresh� parts work well in looking at system interaction and how accurately placement machines place parts, look at reflow settings and process parameters and how the system interacts with the parts in regard to their mechanical features.

Cpk studies with Practical Dummy Components lets users know their process capability index.

Additional benefits to using Practical Dummy Components include:

  • Reduce Waste

  • Improve Process

  • Lower Defects

  • Reduce Variability

  • Reduce Costs

  • Increase Customer Satisfaction

  • Increase Profits

About Practical Components

Practical Components is the worlds leading supplier of dummy components, which are exact mechanical equivalents of live components, used when only the physical properties of the components are required. These components can cost as much as 80% less than live components making the ideal for testing of solder processes, machine setup and other process evaluations. The new publication provides a detailed offering of Practical Components' full line of dummy components, test boards, training kits, production tools and training materials.
