REAL TIME WITH... IPC APEX EXPO 2022 SHOW & TELL MAGAZINE I I-CONNECT007 85 involved in that committee and they will learn that either they're wrong, or else the commit- tee learns that maybe they haven't covered something. Servin: Yes, it's true. e committee structure will help to ensure that it will have something useful for everyone, but we need to partici- pate. If not, we won't be able to get all views and the document would have missing top- ics. All who participate in the committees are learning more, such as during the initial or final discussions with committee members, because they are from several industries—aerospace, military, automotive people, etc. In the end, the standards are helping all to agree on quality and therefore making our assemblies safer and better. Goldman: José, there is a scholarship with this award to the university or school of your choice. Have you chosen a school? Tell us about your choice. Servin: Yes, I have. e school is Yecapixtla's School of Superior Studies from Morelo's Autonomous State University. is is a small school where I teach in my extra time; how- ever, professors and staff are eager to make it grow, and make it an important choice for stu- dents in my state [Morelos, Mexico]. We are constantly improving and looking to create better things. ere are only two careers and one of them is related to electronics and assem- blies so the scholarship will be in the areas that IPC focuses on. I think it is important to sup- port these efforts and initiatives to make a small school better and our industry grow. Goldman: ank you so much for your time and insights, and again, congratulations. It has been a pleasure talking with you. S&T Presenters: Clothilde Manzano, Ph.D., Marketing Development Manager Ahlstrom-Munksjö Sébastien Esnault, Product Engineer, Atlantec, Group ACB What is the most interesting question that your IPC APEX EXPO presentation answers? How can we improve the environmental footprint of PCB producers when considering only consumables? In this way, could we replace the standard plastic film used as release sheet during PCB lamination by a more sustainable and cost-effective release sheet? What is your answer to that question, and why? Replace the traditional plastic release films by a new generation of release sheets: the release parch- ments. The release parchment, OptiLayup, is made of 100% cellulose, is biodegradable and composta- ble. Last but not least, it is cost efficient and has shown very good performance for IPC Class 3 PCB production. What is the most important piece of advice that you have for your audience? See beyond and do not be stuck to your first impression. Innovation is a journey and even a tiny step is useful for every stakeholder!
