NPL announces new dates for improved lead-free workshops

Keywords: NPL, Lead-free soldering

Last year NPL organised workshops that were focused on defined aspects of implementing lead- free processing for small groups with specific job functions. Over 120 key industrial personnel are now better prepared for the transition to lead-free soldering as a result of attending. From participant feedback the solid technical content based on the latest NPL research was found to be very valuable, especially when combined with practical process knowledge.

Building on feedback from 2003 sessions, the new 2004 sessions have been updated and focused to better meet real needs and will be full 1-day events held at the NPL facility in Teddington:

Specifying: design and procurement for lead- free

  • 1 June

  • 21 September

  • 30 November

Manufacturing: engineering and quality for lead- free

  • 2 June

  • 22 September

  • 1 December

For delegate numbers of four or more from one company NPL suggest that it is more cost-effective to present the workshop at their site.

These interactive workshops will help to identify the main concerns during the transition stages, e.g. compatibility of SnPb components and lead-free alloys.

The high demand of these workshops means that it is likely extra dates will be added.
