FREMONT, CA — August 2022 — Datest, a leading provider of advanced, efficient and mission-critical in-circuit testing, test engineering, X-ray inspection and nondestructive failure analysis solutions, is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed its AS9100D recertification. The intent of the standard is to establish a single quality management system for use within the aerospace industry. Based on the ISO 9001 quality system requirements, AS9100D adds more stringent requirements specific to the aviation, space and defense industries.

“With this successful recertification, on our 13th consecutive successful AS9100 audit, Datest has now been certified to both the ISO9001 and AS9100 standards since 2010,” stated Robert Boguski, President of Datest. “Once again, our team successfully demonstrated its well-functioning Quality Management System (QMS) to the satisfaction of a third-party auditor. This time, in fact, we had no violations of the standard at all (no majors, minors or observations). This status doesn’t come easily, and should never be taken for granted.”

With this certification, together with the ISO9001:2015 certification, Datest continues to maintain the appropriate, consensus-driven quality benchmarks to serve the aviation, space and defense industries. The standard takes the requirements of ISO 9001 and supplements them with additional quality system requirements, which are established by the aerospace industry in order to satisfy DOD, NASA and FAA quality requirements.

The current AS9100D revision to the standard adds additional requirements addressing detailed process descriptions and the risks and opportunities associated with their operation; outside interested third party influences; human factors; and professional ethics.

Boguski added, “AS9100D certification enables Datest to participate seamlessly in many varied aerospace projects and programs, often on a tight timeline demanding swift supplier qualification. Prior certification smooths that path to supplier qualification. Those skills and our background make us much more than a vendor to our clients; we are, we hope, a true partner. We are grateful for this recognition, as we use it to grow and diversify our business.”

With more than 38 years of expertise, Datest offers in-circuit testing (ICT), flying probe testing, X-ray inspection, boundary scan/JTAG testing, functional testing, failure analysis and other related analytical and laboratory services. Datest is an ISO9001:2015, ITAR and AS9100D-certified company, and a member of IPC, IEEE, EIPC and ASNT. Datest is a proud and active member of SMTA.

August 2022  EVS International, the leader in solder recovery, today announced plans to exhibit at the SMTA Ohio Valley Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2022 at the Best Western Plus Strongsville in Ohio. The Murray Percival Company will showcase the EVS 500LF Solder Recovery System at Table 42.

EVS has continually improved the performance of the EVS units and the new EVS 500LF is no exception. With the new concept of improved performance plus the significant reduction in price, everyone can enjoy the savings that EVS solder recovery systems can offer. The EVS500LF is designed to ensure that the maximum recovery is maintained throughout the life of the wave solder system. Users can quickly recover up to 80 percent of pure solder with a higher ROI from the waste dross.

The EVS 500LF has the same footprint as a printer and is aimed at multiple markets. The customer with one lead wave and one lead-free wave, the customer who uses Nitrogen or wants to reduce their Nitrogen usage, the customer with selective solder pots who only removes small amounts of dross every hour or the customer with multiple waves where one EVS 500LF is connected to each wave.

The Murray Percival Company represents EVS solder recovery systems in the Midwest. To learn more, visit
