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.

Reliability of ENEPIG by Sequential Thermal Cycling and Aging

11/06/2017 | Reza Ghaffarian, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology
Electroless nickel/electroless palladium/immersion gold (ENEPIG) surface finish for PCBs has now become a key surface finish that is used for both tin-lead and lead-free solder assemblies. This article presents the reliability of LGA component packages with 1156 pads assembled with tin-lead solder onto PCBs with an ENEPIG finish and then subjected to thermal cycling and then isothermal aging.
