Fabrication Technologies Inc./IGM Solutions Earns Qualified Manufacturers Listing to IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610

Mar 12, 2020

IPC's Validation Services Program has awarded an IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) to Fabrication Technologies Inc./IGM Solutions (FabTech-IGM) located in Libertyville, Ill. FabTech-IGM is a leader in contract manufacturing, engineering, fabrication and integration of electronic and metal products. Following the top down approach, a customer encouraged the company to seek the IPC certification to assist with their internal continuous improvement projects. FabTech-IGM successfully completed an intensive audit, based on two of IPC's foremost standards: IPC J-STD-001, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies and IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies.

For many years, FabTech-IGM utilized both IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 for specification of materials, processes and requirements. Moving forward with the QML certification allowed the company to tighten up their processes and products. Their quality management system was reviewed and updated accordingly to ensure traceability from relevant operational procedures to requirements in J-STD-001.

FabTech-IGM met or exceeded the requirements for the electronics industry's rigorous classification, Class 2, which is intended for dedicated service electronics products. As a result, the company maintains their listing as an IPC-trusted source capable of manufacturing in accordance with industry best practices. Fabrication Technologies / IGM Solutions, Inc. and other trusted sources of supply can be found on IPC's QML/QPL (Qualified Product Listing) database at www.ipcvalidation.org.

Paul Kelly, president of FabTech-IGM said, “The IPC QML assessment provided a thorough validation that all the processes performed throughout our operation meet or exceed recognized industry standards. Those industry standards help us internally to form a common understanding of quality requirements with our customers and suppliers. The IPC QML assessment has helped us achieve the value our customers have come to expect from FabTech-IGM.”

IPC's Validation Services QPL/QML Program was developed to promote supply chain verification. It also provides auditing and certification of electronics companies' products and identifies processes which conform to IPC standards.

“Different from other audit programs, IPC's Validation Services Programs uniquely provide technical and in-depth assessments of products and processes in accordance with IPC standards,” said Randy Cherry, IPC director of Validation Services. “We are pleased to especially recognize the QML for Fabrication Technologies / IGM Solutions, Inc. for becoming a member of IPC's network of trusted QML suppliers.”
