    1. Design and Manufacture of High Voltage – Smart-e-Webinar
      2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

      Design and Manufacture of High Voltage

       Tuesday, 14th July 2015, 14.30 – 16.00 UK Time

      With footprint becoming an ever increasing issue, demands on High Voltage electronics design and manufacture are becoming ever more difficult to manage. Decreasing size demands and HV requirements for creepage clearances and separation are at odds with each other, meaning that modern methods need to be refined in order to maintain performance and push the boundaries of current technical requirements.

      This webinar will explore the current technical barriers faced in High Voltage electronics design and manufacturing process and set a current state of thinking.
      SMART Group price is £65 plus VAT for members and £85.00 plus vat for non members

    1. Rapid Oven Setup & PCB Profiling – Seminar @ To be Confirmed
      10:15 am – 5:00 pm

      Rapid Oven Setup & PCB Profiling

      The profiling process has been carried out for several decades and the equipment suppliers, thermocouple manufacturers and measuring instruments have worked well and achieved a good standard of profiling.

      As there is an increase in demand for complex PCB whether in  tin lead or lead-free many components now being subjected to temperatures close to or in  excess of their designed maximum.

      With these challenges in mind it is imperative that the engineer is able to measure assembly temperatures accurately during the soldering process.

      This one day seminar brings all the specialists under one roof to tackle the issues here at the MTC Coventry.

      Topics include:

      Best practices in profiling

      A guide to selecting the correct thermocouple for your process.

      Good use of the data logger.

      The issues arising for poor profiling.

      In-Process control in reflow oven.

      Saving energy using your reflow oven.

      Better understanding of your reflow oven.

       

      Who should attend?

       

      This event is ideally suited to any member of staff working in electronics manufacturing and design. Engineers will benefit from a fuller understanding of the issues currently being experienced in profiling PCB.
