Tempo Automation Earns IPC Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML)

May 27, 2019

IPC's Validation Services Program has awarded an IPC-A-610 and IPC J-STD-001 Qualified Manufacturers Listings (QML) Class 3 and IPC J-STD-001 Space QML, to Tempo Automation for its location in San Francisco, Calif.

Following an initial audit by IPC, Tempo Automation becomes one of the trusted sources and suppliers meeting the stringent requirements of the Qualified Manufacturing Listing (QML) based on two of IPC's foremost standards: IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies, and IPC J-STD-001, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies. Tempo Automation also obtained the QML for IPC J-STD-001GS, Space and Military Applications Electronic Hardware Addendum to IPC J-STD-001G Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies.

Tempo Automation is known for its rapid delivery and high-quality built products. During the IPC Validation Services QML audit, Tempo Automation met or exceeded the requirements for the electronics industry’s most rigorous classification, Class 3, which is intended for high-performance electronics assemblies. The company is now listed and recognized as an IPC trusted source capable of manufacturing in accordance with industry best practices.

“Tempo Automation utilizes the IPC standards as the foundation for building a world-class manufacturing company,” said Dan Radler, director of factory technology at Tempo Automation. “Those industry standards help us by framing internally a common understanding of quality requirements with our customers and vendors.  IPC Validation Services has been invaluable in that formation and to authenticate our quality excellence claims through their certification program.”

"Different from other audit programs, IPC's Validation Services Programs uniquely provides technical and in-depth assessments of products and processes in accordance with IPC standards," said Randy Cherry, IPC director of Validation Services.
