Delta Group Electronics in Albuquerque, N.M. recently hosted the production of two new IPC Training Videos: Handling During Electronics Assembly and How to Inspect Electronic Assemblies.
The week-long video shoot was arranged by Delta Group’s Director of Corporate Quality, Tod Cummins. Production coordination was provided by Irene Romero, QA Manager and Master IPC Trainer (MIT).
An additional IPC video, Wire Assembly Terminology Training, was videotaped last year at Delta Group’s facility in Rockledge, Fla. Bill Blinn, manufacturing project lead, provided the production coordination for the wire terminology video, and for segments of another IPC training video, Component Identification.
Tod Cummins commented, “Participating in these efforts has been very exciting and a most welcome experience. It has reinforced the understanding throughout the company of the effort that goes into these videos, garnering a higher respect for the training throughout the employee base. The newer generations coming into the industry are more accustomed to computer-based training and now expect this quality level of training to be provided day one. I see the IPC training videos as a critical piece of the future of electronic manufacturing.”
Delta Group Electronics uses IPC videos as baseline training for both new employees as well as refresher training for seasoned industry veterans. Founded in 1987, Delta Group Electronics Inc. is an electronics contracts manufacturer with five facilities — servicing the southern portion of United States from coast to coast.

IPC deeply appreciates Delta Group’s contribution to the educational efforts of our industry. Mark Pritchard, director of IPC video training added, “They made us feel completely welcome during production. Everyone we worked appeared to enjoy their acting experiences. It was a very productive and enjoyable experience for us as well.”
