The risks of poor electronics storage

One of the standards that separate a qualified distributor from some of its more risky peers is proper storage and handling of electronic components, writes EPS News.

“Using proper electronic component storage is a vital part of quality control. Relying on incorrect practices could mean products fail sooner than expected or never perform as they should.”

“Oxidation and diffusion are two of the biggest risks to electronic components. Having the electronic components in an environment characterized by the wrong relative humidity is also problematic.”

The solution, according to EPS, is to “partner with providers of climate-controlled storage” – like Astute Electronics.

Astute offers a more integrated, traceable approach to long-term storage including total environmental protection via humidity-controlled warehousing, nitrogen-controlled storage, and total protection from unauthorised access.

EPS concludes, “Many electronics components are already in high demand and short supply. Storing them properly can help people cope with supply chain problems by ensuring more of the parts companies have available perform as expected.”

To avoid electronics supply-chain disruptions, you may also wish to consult an expert in electronics component supply. With more than three decades of supply-chain expertise, Astute Electronics is ideally placed to work with you on your daily component requirements.
