LPKF/ITE/Hakko: Cooperation between Commerce and Science
The Institute of Technical Education (ITE), Singapore, Hakko Products Pte Ltd., Singapore, as a specialist for soldering technology and the Rapid PCB Prototyping division of LPKF Laser & Electronics AG, Garbsen, Germany, signed an agreement to collaborate in training developers of printed circuit boards.
Since 2010, the ITE and Hakko, producer of high-quality soldering systems and exclusive distributor of LPKF products, have been working together to train students. In September, specific further measures were agreed on in a memorandum of understanding. Now LPKF has also come on board.
The three partners will work together to formulate courses of instruction for special training in prototyping. In addition, the ITE has received a complete series of LPKF systems and processes for non-chemical circuit board prototyping. Finally, in the next five years employees of the ITE will head to LPKF headquarters to participate in specifically conceived “train-the-trainer” intensive courses.
The memorandum of understanding was signed as part of an official reception. The high point was the handover of a sculpture, to serve as a reminder of the day and the significance of this agreement for the three partners.
