Counterfeit electronic components are a massive problem in the US and a growing menace in Europe.

But it’s what’s inside the package that counts… sometimes it’s nothing at all!

No 23: To automate, or not to automate, that is the question
Low volume electronics manufacture has traditionally relied on hand assembly and testing. Yet, the quality variations introduced during manual manufacture means that in some cases, even very low volume manufacture may be better served by automation. In this session, Peter Grundy sets out to explore the many different aspects of automation, from assembly to quality/inspection, and asks are you really using automation effectively?
