Success story: Lead-free Solder
Benchmark Electronics (Winona, Minn.) invested time in planning and implementing a comprehensive, multiphase approach to converting to lead-free solder assembly. The company has established all necessary process changes and continues to make improvements. Although the conversion required commitment and resource investment, once in place the benefits are many--from improved market position for products to decreased worker exposure and elimination of lead emissions to the environment along with decreased Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) reporting requirements.
