Selco Products Announces IPC Certification Achievement
RENO, NV—–Selco Products announced completion of two IPC certifications. IPC (formerly known as the Institute for Interconnecting and Packaging Electronic Circuits) is dedicated to furthering competitive excellence in the electronics industry and certification has become recognized as a statement of quality assurance.
IPC Certified Trainer, Wendy Wilkey, Selco Products quality manager, spearheaded the training and certification process for over 30 Selco employees. “Achieving IPC Certification is another layer of quality we can provide our customers,” said Wilkey. “It demonstrates our commitment to continuous improvement and gives our customers further confidence in our ability to produce the superior products they have come to expect.”
Selco employees have been certified to IPC-A-610 and IPC/WHMA-A-620 standards.
IPC-A-610 is the most widely used inspection standard in the electronic industry. It has earned an international reputation as the source for end-product acceptance criteria for consumer and high reliability assemblies. The second certification, IPC/WHMA-A-620, covers standards on acceptability criteria for crimped, mechanically secured and soldered interconnections, and the corresponding lacing/restraining criteria associated with cable and harness assemblies.
“Most companies have IPC certified employees in their quality departments,” said Wilkey. “Selco went beyond that and had employees in both manufacturing and quality trained and certified in order to assure the best possible product throughout the manufacturing process.”
