Managing your ESD Control Programme

It’s Thursday and time for a new blog post! Although, today’s post is a little different…

A few years ago, a great article was published on the Circuits Assembly website. The article was written by the ESD Association and is titled Managing Your ESD Program.
The article discusses the challenges manufactures face in designing and maintaining an ESD control programme for their operations. The article goes on to breakdown managing an ESD programme in the following areas:

  • Identify and establish ESD teams
  • Identify your losses
  • Identify ESD sensitive items
  • Evaluate your facility and processes
  • Establish and implement procedures
  • Train personnel
  • Evaluate, adjust and provide feedback

We wanted to share the article with you because it contains loads of information that we think you will find useful!

Here is a link to the article – happy reading!

About descoeurope

Desco Europe is the newest brand in the Desco Industries family, consolidating our two previous UK-based brands, Charleswater and Vermason. Charleswater, originally located in W. Newton, MA, was acquired in 1990. After several years of offering both Desco and Charleswater products in the US, Charleswater was set up to be the leading brand in the UK with the acquisition of Conductive Products in 1998. Vermason was a manufacturer of ESD protection products and was founded in Letchworth in 1979. In April 2007 Desco Industries, Inc. of Chino California acquired 100% of the shares of Vermason Ltd. Vermason is now a division of Desco Industries, Inc. Today, as Desco Europe, we retain our manufacturing capability in Letchworth, Hertfordshire, with sales and administration being split between Letchworth and our Crowborough, East Sussex office. Desco Europe sells the full range of DII products, manufactured in our facilities in the USA and UK, servicing the European market via trained distributors who will sell the Desco Europe value package and complete ESD solution to all ESD users in their territory, leading with hi-end solutions that mark us out from the competition. Desco Europe’s UK-based inventory coupled with that of our distributors means that we are in a unique position to support our Customers across Europe no matter what their needs.
