Ultra-Sensitive ESD Devices - DoD, NASA, DOE
No RMAs for Medical Device, Space Platforms and Aerospace & Defense for Ultrasensitive ESD Devices
An Architect, Civil Engineer, General Contractor or flooring subcontractor may not be knowledgeable in the most recent and advanced specifications for ultra-sensitive devices in a Class 0 manufacturing facility.
This will include the installation of flooring for data centers, call centers, border patrol facilities, clean rooms, sterile environments for the medical device sector as well as pharmaceutical drug delivery operations.
We test Soldering Irons in the RMV at NASA Ames Laboratory to ANSI/ESD STM 13.1Electrical Soldering/Desoldering Hand Tools.
Today, the number of soldering irons being counterfeited is alarming. If you are having issues with your soldering irons, you could have purchased fraudulent tips or you could have purchased a 'knock off.'
Bob Vermillion, Founder, CEO, RMV, sits on the Hand Tool Committee for the ESD Association and is co-author of many standards in use today.
