The IPC-Association Connecting Electronics Industries® is regarded as the de-facto authority on PCB design, fabrication and assembly.
As a global trade association it is dedicated to promoting it’s 2000+ member companies. As a standards body it produces numerous standards that have been adopted worldwide as the best practice benchmark.
Specifically, the IPC-A-610 standard for PCB assembly sets out criteria for the visual acceptability of the finished product based on a set of classes from Acceptable (Class 1) to the Best (Class 3).
To support this standard and to certify its correct implementation, Norcott recognises the importance of training all of it’s operators and key members of our support staff to the IPC610 standard. To accomplish this Norcott has it’s own on site IPC610 trainer and training school facilities, ensuring that all appropriate staff members are highly trained to the latest standard and revision.
