The war in the Ukraine seems not to be over soon. No matter how bad this is. Many countries and their political leaders are now supplying many weapons to the Ukraine. And not just that, defence budgets are also being brought back up to standard. And meanwhile NATO has declared Russia to be the biggest threat for Europe.

All these developments have their influence on the producers and suppliers for the defence industry. Nowadays weapons are highly developed electronical machines, and their fabrication must comply with very strict requirements.

It is therefore that IPC-standards are in use. All these standards were and are developed together with the industry. Thus, the latest and most up-to-date facts are incorporated in these standards. This ensures that manufacturers are always informed in relation to the latest developments and customers can rely on the fact that quality is guaranteed.

IPC supplies some standards that are important for manufacturers and suppliers. These can be pragmatically divided into five main categories; namely PCB design, PCB manufacturing, PCB assembly, PCB repair and rework and finally wires and wire harness techniques. Under these five main categories we find various IPC-standards like the IPC-2220 series, IPC-A-600, IPC-A-610, IPC-7711/7721, IPC/WHMA-A-620, etc.

PIEK, as a globally operating training institute for the electronic connection industry, has been a partner of the manufacturers and suppliers within the defence industry for decades. More and more companies know how to find PIEK. Not just because PIEK offers all IPC-trainings, but also because the trainers are very experienced and share their internationally gained knowledge with their participants.
