ESD (Electrostatic Discharge)

ESD tableThe goal of correctly used electrostatic discharge control measures is to improve your company yield, reduce the scrap / returns from your customer, reduce the amount of repairs and achieve an improved company image. During our ESD training and certification courses we try to make manufacturing and non-manufacturing staff aware of the electrostatic discharge problems and prevention within the electronics industry. In general non-manufacturing personnel forms the weakest link in the electrostatic discharge control chain. In this way your personnel will get a better insight on why it is important to work ESD-safe and will contribute to your company policy in this area by understanding this is a constant point of interest.
