Gen3 Systems, Microtek reveal test lab plan
Gen3 Systems and Microtek Laboratories have unveiled joint plans to open a new European Test Lab in Q2 2014. It will be located at Gen3 Systems’ facility in Farnborough, UK. Graham Naisbitt will be the Operations Director - Europe.
“The new facility will be fully ISO 17025 qualified and brings together, for the first time in Europe, the most comprehensive test capability for the electronics industry,” commented Naisbitt. “In addition to providing test results and data interpretation, Microtek provides specialised client services such as failure analysis and test program development. Our technical staff will produce customised test programs that aid in identifying the cause of manufacturing problems. Microtek also can assist in mediating and resolving customer-supplier disputes.”
In conjunction with the opening of the new European Test Lab, Gen3 Systems will merge its Test Services division.
Initially this will involve SIR, ECM and CAF testing, Solderability, Cleanliness and Materials Characterisation test services, and will strongly link to the Microtek Laboratories, East Coast lab in Baltimore, Maryland.
