A comprehensive two day workshop covering everything

you need to know about SMT Electronics Assembly

Presented by: Phil Zarrow

– President and Principal Consultant, ITM Consulting

The SMT Boot Camp is an SMT Electronics Assembly workshop will give a practical overview of the many different processes and materials used in through-hole and surface mount technologies (SMT). It is a focused two-day workshop providing attendees with the opportunity to learn and understand the processes, tools, and materials used in today's manufacture of electronic assemblies. It is taught by an experienced and knowledgeable instructor who has worked in a variety of electronics manufacturing and related fields for over 35 years. Mr Zarrow is recognized for his expertise in surface mount reflow soldering technology and in the design and implementation of SMT placement equipment and reflow soldering systems. He has presented technical papers at major conferences in North and South America, Europe, South Africa, Australia and the Pacific Rim. He has published many technical papers and magazine articles as well as contributed a number of chapters to industry books. He is co-author of the book, "SMT Glossary- Terms and Definitions".
