Electronics Yorkshire is set to exhibit at Blundell’s Technology Week and mini exhibition between 12th and 14th October at the company’s recently expanded exhibition showroom in Coventry.
Senior Tutor and Technology Centre Manager, Eric Hinsley, will be on hand each day to explain how companies can make use of the unique resources of test, analysis and repair equipment available at Electronics Yorkshire’s Leeds centre, as well as the depth of training courses Electronics Yorkshire has to offer businesses from all over the UK.
As an industry-dedicated Training Centre, Electronics Yorkshire is the only IPC Centre in the UK authorised to deliver the full range of IPC-certificated courses to both trainers and staff. Along with IPC Electronics Yorkshire also offers industry standard soldering and tailor-made electronics training courses.
The Electronics Yorkshire Technology Centre is equipped with a wide range of advanced inspection, testing, assembly and reworking equipment, including a five-axes real-time x-ray machine designed specifically for the electronics industry and available for general use by companies. The centre has been established to provide expert support and advice to industry. Other key equipment includes our environmental testing chamber for accelerated life-cycle testing and a Fischer x-ray spectrometer for elemental analysis of components and materials.
Throughout Blundell’s Technology Week show there will be working demonstrations of each piece of machinery in the company’s product range, together with displays by selected partner companies, including Nutek (conveyors), DEK (printers), BLT (consumables), Robotas (manual assembly), Humiseal (coating materials) and MTA (factory automation). A ‘factory tour’ is also included in each day’s activities.
Each day will kick off with coffee and an introduction, followed by demonstrations and individual discussions on numerous topics including:
