BGA, QFN Fine Pitch Rework Experience Live. Test your skills on different area array rework systems with QFN and BGA packages. Our test board was recently featured in the IPC, NPL & SMART Group Rework Experience and you can see your own results under x-ray inspection. During the session delegates can rework one of the Rework Experience Test Boards and have demonstrations of different methods of reworking packages with solder paste print, dip paste and gel paste and see the benefits of different techniques. Each delegate will receive a SMART Group Certificate of attendance
Tuesday 21st November starting at 9.30am, coffee at 9.00am and finishing at 4.00pm
Table Top Exhibition space will be limited at this event, book you place early to avoid disappointment Click Here
It’s quite a few years since SMART Group held one of its popular rework workshops so here is a chance to try out new rework stencils produced with polyimide, latest dip paste products. We hope to feature a range of different convection and IR rework systems with semi and fully automated software and the latest solder removal methods
Each delegate will receive a copy of all the slides presented plus a set of SMART Group Rework and Repair Poster Sets
Training course tackles EMI in fieldbusses
~ Provided by experts on EMI, PROFIBUS and PROFINET ~
Electromagnetic compatibility specialist EMC Standards is inviting bookings to a one-day training course about maintaining PROFIBUS and PROFINET reliability in modern industrial environments. The event will be held at the offices of Endress + Hauser in Manchester on November 22, 2017 and is targeted at installers, systems integrators and the wider industrial datacomms community.
The training course will be delivered by global EMC expert Keith Armstrong, of EMC Standards, and by PROFIBUS and PROFINET expert Peter Thomas, of Control Specialists Ltd.
The topics covered include an introduction to electromagnetic interference (EMI) problems in PROFIBUS, PROFINET and similar fieldbus applications, followed by detailed practical EMI-reduction guidance on power distribution systems, galvanic isolation, cable routing, EM zoning, RF bonding, cable shielding, filtering, enclosure shielding and surge/lightning protection.
“Electromagnetic interference (EMI) is becoming a major problem in modern industrial environments,” explained Keith Armstrong. “This is due to the increased use of high-efficiency switching power conversion in DC power supplies, motor drives, HVAC and lighting.
“As we increase the use of automation in sectors such as automotive, food and beverage, packaging and pharmaceuticals, we need to ensure that Fieldbusses such as PROFIBUS and PROFINET continue to operate reliably. This course provides practical techniques for installers, systems integrators and anyone in the wider industrial datacomms community to deal with EMI.”
A digital copy of the course material will be provided, and participants will also be able to take away specialist guides developed in collaboration with power quality specialist REO UK, including Good EMC Engineering Practices for Panel Builders, Good EMC Engineering Practices in the Installation of Power Drive Systems and Good EMC Engineering Practices for Fixed Installations.
The course costs £350 + VAT, including refreshments throughout the day and lunch. For more details, or to book a place, email Alan at email@example.com. The course is organised by EMC Exhibitions & Training Ltd.
