Electronics Assembly in Action


Struggling to find a good, royalty-free, video of electronics assembly, my Dartmouth ENGM 185 class on manufacturing processes decided to make our own. I think it is pretty good considering our limited ($0) budget.


It was filmed at PCM in Springfield, VT. The young woman in the video is my ENGS 3 student from last summer, Ruthie Welch. The entire ENGM 185 class participated in the production.

As an aside, PCM’s assembly process uses lead-free solder paste.

    Nice film. On behalf of the industry – Thanks! This is a good reference for our laymen friends who wonder what it is we do (after we explain that we don’t do software….).
    Congrats to you and your team at Dartmouth.
