WHMA Wired-In Sept/Oct 2019

Wired In

By Christine Siebert

As I have discussed in previous articles, the Wiring Harness Manufacturing’s Association, along with the affiliation with IPC, are finding ways to new ways to bring education to our members and non-members. Our mission is to LEAD, EDUCATE, and CONNECT. WHMA strives to connect our members on industry topics, through conferences, standards, networking, social media and we are now offering webinars.

The last two years, WHMA and IPC held Innovation Conferences discussing how wire harnesses are the backbone of our industry. In these events, we arranged for the largest industry leaders to come and speak on topics related to Innovation and Technical challenges in our industry. This year we have decided to change the format so more of the members in our industry can attend and learn from these subject matter experts.

You won’t want to miss this year’s IPC/WHMA Wiring Harness Innovation Webinar Series, taking place on September 17, October 15, and November 19, 2019. By attending this live, online event, you will gain significant knowledge on cable and wire harness technology while saving on travel expenses and avoiding unnecessary time out of the office.

This unique series will give you an opportunity to hear from industry leaders including Panduit Corp., Schleuniger, Komax, Wielandand others. Topics to be covered will increase your knowledge of design, process, product quality and field reliability for cable and wiring harness applications.

Webinar Topics to be covered:

  • Industry Trends in Wiring Harnesses
  • Leveraging Standards to Address Wire Harness Manufacturing Challenges
  • What’s New in the Soon to be Released IPC/WHMA-A-620 Revision D
  • Innovations in Connector Base Materials
  • How Wiring Harness Automation Can Lead to Engineering Efficiency Gains

Join WHMA/IPC at the wire harness innovation conference to meet our technology experts. They represent important verticals like automotive, industrial, aerospace and defense, and are looking forward to sharing their knowledge and answering your questions about the advances and innovations taking place in the wire harness and cable industry.
