Foreign Objects and Debris or Foreign Object Damage (FOD) can severely affect the reliability and functionality of any electronic device. This training video provides the information and techniques to help eliminate FOD during electronics assembly, hand soldering, SMT & PTH assembly processes, as well as during box build and wire assembly. Eliminating FOD requires awareness of the problem and control of its sources through effective housekeeping; control and accountability of tools / hardware; and proper material handling.

DVD-172C explains the six steps of proper housekeeping, and covers tool control, hardware control, material handling as well as ESD prevention. It’s everyone’s responsibility to ensure that all assemblies are built free from FOD – not only for the economic health and reputation of your company, but for the safety and reliability of the final products delivered to your customers.

The optional satirical introduction will help drive home the importance of this often overlooked and vexing problem in electronics assembly – and help put your students in a receptive frame of mind to change bad habits.

Includes Leader's Guide, Transcript, Review Questions, Training Certification Exam* (with certificates of completion) and Answer Key. Also available on Blu-ray, hi-definition video disc. (See "Related Products," below.) For unlimited usage at one facility. With optional SDH (English) Subtitles for the Deaf or Hard of Hearing, and ESL students. Time: 24 minutes.
