MassTech EMS offers Pb-Free Conversion Program.

Woburn, MA -- Masstech EMS is offering a family of services designed to help customers comply with changing environmental regulations. The firm's Lead-Free Conversion Program helps OEMs prepare for and comply with the EU RoHS directive.

Masstech ( said the service helps companies assess current products to identify leaded components and provides recommendations on available options for Pb-free replacement parts or product redesign.

The comprehensive, step-by-step service includes:

* BoM scrubs: detailed software-generated analysis of every component in a specific product to identify leaded components that require replacement.

* Recommendations on Pb-free replacement parts: specific suggestions on replacement parts from a client's Approved Vendor List or viable options from other suppliers.

* Component intelligence for reduced risks: information on the viability and risks of available replacement parts, including product lifecycle information and part class analysis.

* Parametric data analysis: technical data on material composition of replacement parts.

In a statement, Jerry Panos, president and CEO, said, "For many companies, becoming lead-free is a daunting task that they are reluctant to address. We take the pain and complexity out of the effort by providing a pragmatic and manageable process."

The firm has been a leader in preparing its customers for compliance. Earlier in the year, Masstech sponsored a seminar, bringing in several experts on legislative and manufacturing issues.
