BEST to Hold Wire and Cable Harness Hands-on Assembly Class


Reading time ( words)

BEST announces the development and release of a practically-oriented wire and cable harness assembly class. As a complement to the IPC-A-620 Acceptability of Wire and Cable Harness class, this modularized class takes a student through the building of a wire harness assembly. The wire and cable harness assembly class, based on a MIL standards and developed by military-trained instructors, will teach students how to read prints, strip and prep wire, add terminals and splices and put together a wire harness board per print.  During the class the instructor will weave in concepts as put forth by the latest IPC-A-620 acceptability criteria.

The class will, over a period of two days, cover the following materials:

Module 1: Lab Overview where students will learn how to review and read and interpret cable and wire harness assembly prints

Module 2: Wire Prep and Solder Termination where students will learn how to cut, strip and prep wires per the standard

Module 3: Coaxial Terminations where students will the basics of cutting, stripping and prepping a COAX connector per the standard

Module 4: Pin Crimp Terminations were students will learn how to terminate stamped and formed as well as machined contacts

Module 5: IDC Terminations where students will learn how to terminate, test and inspect IDC terminations using and RJ45 connector per the standard

Module 6: Splicing where students will learn how to prep and splice cables using  a variety of methods

Module 7: Lug Crimp Termination and inspection techniques will be taught to students

Module 8: Harness Securing methods and standards will be taught

Class seats for the full (9) modules spread over (2) days is $900 including all of the materials. Select modules may be offered for custom class configurations for larger groups. Training is offered in Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis, Cleveland as well as aboard the BEST mobile training center.

IPC Standards Development: Business Challenges and an Inside View

10/28/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
With increasing frequency, standardising the standards, such as ISO 9201, imposes certain rules that must be met to ensure “fair play” amongst the supply chain. There will be those familiar with hearing about “false positives/negatives” and “never trust the salesman,” so mitigating these is no easy task. However, there is the chance for each 5-30 Task Group to review industry requirements and set out the work program for the ensuing period. With that in mind, much of what follows is based on comments we learn about from our industry around the world, many of whom are not yet IPC members. Yes, this is a membership recruitment drive, unashamedly, as well as a search for volunteers willing to help create the standards of tomorrow.

90% Solder Dross Recovery: Eliminate Waste, Save Money

10/20/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
The impact of 90% solder dross recovery can have a substantial impact on reducing waste and increasing cost savings. Nolan Johnson recently spoke with Jay Hardin, MS2® product manager at P. Kay Metal, about the process and benefits of efficient solder dross recovery, as well as product roadmaps, the soldering machine market, and raw materials supply chain for solder alloy manufacturing. As Jay says, “For many companies, the savings are in the thousands or millions” of dollars.
