How Aftermarket Electronics Remanufacturing Boosts the Energy Industry

By Matric on Apr 29, 2020

Massive amounts of money are at play when it comes to power distribution electronics. The electronic product development life cycle frequently sparks frustration among OEMs in this industry because parts steadily wear out and require attention to keep critical infrastructure operating.

Full-blown replacement of a product is neither cost-effective nor efficient when downtime is harmful to both OEM and end consumer. It's absolutely crucial that you're always thinking about the electronic component life cycle and making plans for the future

RoHS 2 Compliance & Directives Checklist

By Matric on Apr 03, 2020

In 2006, the European Union rolled out a directive restricting the use of certain hazardous chemicals. This directive, Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), would have a far-reaching impact on the electronics industry. Its restrictions on using lead would send manufacturers scrambling to revise their practices or adopt entirely new ones. Thanks to a follow-up directive in 2011, manufacturers now hustle to meet RoHS 2 compliance.

Yes, it’s not a punitive law full of fines and penalties. But if you’re a U.S. company, noncompliance is basically an impassable barrier to entry to the EU trade market. So if you want to do business abroad, don’t mess around -- comply.
