TWO Solihull firms will be showcasing their products at this year’s Farnborough International Air Show next month.
TRW Conekt, is a consulting services and engineering business and its issuing a challenge to electronics engineers at the show which runs from July 9-15.
Visitors to the company on the Midlands Aerospace Alliance (MAA) exhibition stand, Hall 1 – B14, will have the opportunity to win a Kindle e-reader by identifying a number of faults on a printed circuit board (PCB) that has been specially created for the show.
This PCB incorporates several manufacturing defects that might give rise to in-service reliability problems.
Dr Martin Harvey, who leads Conekt’s electronics reliability activities, said: “To produce electronics assemblies for the aerospace industry, the IPC-A-610 Class III standard needs to be met. Conekt has many years of experience of working with this standard and has helped several organisations either improve the quality of their own processes or those of their supply chain.”
Conekt has a proven track record of delivering services to enable the development of electromechanical and electronic aerospace products and also offers design and development services to support the development of safety-critical electronic products and systems.
Also there will be ConsultAvila which has an impressive track record supporting companies in the aerospace and defence industries.
Managing director Dr Jose Guzman, said: “Our clients tell us the challenge facing them today is not so much determining what direction to take, but the effective and rapid execution of their plans.
“Companies have moved from requiring consultants to tell them what to do, to needing expert help to bridge skills gaps, to provide expert coaching and help with implementation.”
