Teledyne Impulse-PDM Receives IPC Accreditation


IPC/WHMA-A-620 is the first industry consensus standard that describes acceptability criteria for crimped, mechanically secured and soldered interconnections and the corresponding lacing/restraining criteria associated with cable and harness assemblies. This credential is recognised and valued throughout the Electronics Industry. For many years, the Teledyne Impulse-PDM Wiring Department have based internal standards and staff training on the criteria and acceptance levels within IPC-A-620 for all product manufacture.

In response to the growing need to formalise the high quality standards set for wiring of in-house manufactured products, all Teledyne Impulse-PDM Wiring personnel have successfully completed a 4-day intensive Training and Certification programme presented by STEM Training UK.

"Carrying out the IPC-620 training at Teledyne Impulse in Alton  was  a great pleasure for me, as the course candidates already had sound knowledge of cable & wire harness assemblies.  They quickly absorbed the course content & gained a high average score (95%+) over the eight tests.  And as we worked our way through a number of different soldered terminals, I could see that they also had much experience on the practical soldering skills. All in all, a great team & a pleasure to work with, well done guys!"

Paul Pidgeon [Certified IPC Trainer], STEM Training UK

This achievement underlines Teledyne Impulse-PDM’s commitment to providing the highest quality products for our customers, for whom reliability in harsh environments is a major concern, and affirms our long held belief that our Wiring Team are capable of delivering World Class standards of workmanship.

Cathodic Delamination


PDM are carrying out a study of cathodic delamination and other related issues in collaboration with Portsmouth University. The object of the study is to examine the phenomena involved and to optimise surface preparation & bonding.

Custom analytical techniques and trials are being used to study material performance. Substrate preparation, primers and elastomers are being evaluated as part of this work.

The stability of moulded assemblies under different electrical potentials and degradation due to micro-organisms is also being examined.

If you would like more information please download the first part of this work.
