Amerway Earns ISO 9001 Quality Certification


Reading time ( words)

Amerway Inc. recently has been awarded ISO 9001 quality certification.

"We're pleased and proud to have earned this coveted ISO quality certification, because it recognizes our achievements as we strive to be the best solder manufacturer in North America," says Amerway President Terry Buck. "Amerway provides superior product purity, overall quality, and service. Through proprietary refining techniques, Amerway produces the finest solder in the world."

The drive for ISO certification was spearheaded by Tyler Port, Quality/Project Manager, who was brought aboard, initially, specifically to achieve the ISO 9001 goal.

"Although the effort began in April of 2016, I was hired to complete the ISO certification when I returned from a scheduled military deployment," Tyler says. "Prior to joining the military, I had worked for Amerway for more than three years. During my deployment, I researched and learned everything I could regarding ISO certification, so that when I returned, I immediately got to work."

Based on his prior experience with Amerway, as well as his research into ISO, his efforts enabled Amerway to achieve ISO 9001 certification in the space of five months.

Solder Printing Process Inputs Impacting Distribution of Paste Volume

12/14/2017 | Marco Lajoie and Alain Breton, C-MAC Microelectronics
The volume of solder deposition, like any process, has variations that may be characterized by a statistical distribution curve, whether normal or non-normal. As complexity, density, cost and reliability requirements increase, there may be value in narrowing the distribution curve. It is common sense that less variation serves the interest of quality of the more complex and dense circuit boards.

Improving Solder Paste Printing

12/12/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
Of the three elements involved in the solder paste printing process—stencil, solder paste, and printer—the stencil is considered one of the major factors affecting the transfer efficiency, accuracy, and consistency, of solder pastes into the pads, especially with the continuing trend towards miniaturization.

Equipment Matters in Solder Paste Printing

12/06/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
The solder paste printing process has always been considered a major contributor to yield loss. According to many studies, solder paste printing accounts for up to 70% of all PCB assembly defects. For the December issue of SMT Magazine, we interviewed experts in the solder paste printing process to learn more about the key issues leading to this huge percentage of defects, and the technology developments that are addressing these challenges and improving yields in the process.
