EPAconsult® – ESD services

[SL:epaconsult-en]


In the electronics industry, it is essential that employees, responsible persons and management deal with the extensive topic of "ESD protection". Correct personal conduct and conscious handling of electronic components are crucial for preventing damage to electronics.

"Our training courses, seminars and consultations promote
the understanding of electrostatic interrelationships
and effects and show how ESD protection measures can be
measures can be applied in a targeted manner and ESD risks
can be recognized."


We offer application-oriented training courses and seminars based on the requirements of the ESD standards IEC (DIN EN) 61340-5-1 (VDE0300-5-1). Individual operational requirements and customer-oriented, theoretical and practical topics can be integrated through a flexible and modular course structure. The training content is conveyed in theoretical form and practical examples in an application-oriented manner.


Our workshops and trainings



ESD Basic training


Half-day training


The ESD basic training course provides participants with the necessary basics and knowledge for ESD safety in production and assembly. All employees in these areas require basic ESD training.

Individual education and training



ESD Management


This training course is aimed at people with decision-making powers in areas where ESD-sensitive components and parts are handled. For management and decision-makers, the training focuses on risk assessment as well as product liability and commercial aspects.

ESD protection influences product and manufacturing quality. Inadequate ESD protection leads to reduced quality and complaints from your customers. These aspects are often given insufficient consideration.

The ESD training for management and decision-makers takes place on site at your company and is flexibly timed to suit your training needs (half-day recommended).


Contents

  • Basics of electrostatics
  • ESD hazards of components
  • Risk analysis and assessment
  • Standards and guidelines
  • Legal background


Recommended target groups

  • ESD managers, ESD coordinators
  • Quality assurance, quality management
  • Development, production planning, logistics
  • Purchasing, technical purchasing
  • Management
  • Decision-makers, managers


To the training 


ESD Methods and measurement


The practice-oriented training builds on existing basic knowledge in the field of electrostatics and knowledge of the potential hazards to electronic components.

We train your employees in accordance with standards and impart the knowledge they need to support your ESD coordinator during measurements. Participants acquire the relevant knowledge to be able to carry out, evaluate and document measurements for the verification of ESD control elements in accordance with the ESD control program plan.

The ESD technology and measurement training course takes place on site at your company. It is flexibly timed to suit your training needs.

Customized ESD services


As part of our EPAconsult® overall program, we offer you competent advice according to your individual requirements, such as an inventory of the existing ESD protection and needs assessment as well as the development of an ESD protection concept with concrete proposals.


ESD measurements

Regular verification measurements are required to prove the effectiveness of ESD protection measures. These include measurements of the discharge resistances of ESD floors, work tables and storage surfaces, ESD chairs, shelves and transport trolleys, to name just a few examples. The function of the ionizers is checked as well as all components used as ESD protection.

We offer you the opportunity to carry out and record these measurements for you using our equipment.

On request, we can prepare a test report that evaluates the ESD protection measures in context.


ESD control program

The ESD protection measures introduced serve to reduce the risk of failure, i.e. to ensure quality. These measures are usually integrated into the quality management system. An ESD control program with an ESD control program plan is required as proof. This documentation is required in order to be audited in accordance with the ESD standard IEC DIN EN 61340. It is also often required for customer audits.

We support you in the preparation of this comprehensive documentation, which is required for an auditable ESD protection concept.


ESD audit

The function of the ESD control program introduced in your company is confirmed by an independent audit. Document checks, plausibility and random sample measurements are naturally part of the audit. You will receive a detailed audit report and a certificate.


Calibration

The personal test stations and ESD measuring devices required to measure the control elements must be calibrated regularly. We offer you this service. The devices are calibrated internally by DPV or by an external provider. We are also at your disposal for support requests and repairs.
