Gardien: Selling Test Equipment and Services


Reading time ( words)

During IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego, California, the I-Connect007 Editorial Team met with some of the industry's top executives, managers, and engineers in our Real Time with... IPC booth.

In this interview, technology editor Pete Starkey speaks with Jason Posey, director of sales and service with Gardien. They discuss Gardien's range of flying probe testing and the introduction of AVI into the North American market. As Jason explains, their AVI equipment “never gets tired.” Gardien also uses its test equipment to provide testing services for much of the world’s PCBs.

IPC APEX EXPO is the largest PCB industry event in North America. The next IPC APEX EXPO will be held January 26-28, 2021, at the San Diego Convention Center.

In this interview, Charlie Capers of Zentech breaks down the changing requirements he’s seeing in test and inspection in the industry, and the growing importance of investing in testing for the future growth and success of your company. According to Capers, "When you collect statistics on defects, you will start to see a trend that says, for example, we’ve got a lot of shorts and opens, meaning that our solder paste process is not tight. If you’re collecting statistics and really studying them, you will see trends in your processes."

Test and Inspection: Far Beyond Opens and Shorts

Gardien Vice President Todd Kolmodin talks about test and inspection market drivers from his perspective as a test service provider. Andy Shaughnessy and Happy Holden go down the “microvia rabbit hole” with Todd, as well as explore how OEM design requirements are driving test and inspection functionality and processes.
