IPC Looking for the Best-of-the-Best Hand Soldering Technicians Top Contenders will Vie for the World Championship Title

Nov 05, 2013

The third annual IPC APEX EXPO® Hand Soldering Competition will be held March 25–26, 2014, at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada. This year’s challenge will be to build a functional electronics assembly in a 30-minute time period with a chance to compete in the IPC World Championship on March 27. Soldering technicians who can “bring it” are encouraged to sign up for one of a limited number of competition slots.

IPC Master Instructors will judge assemblies on soldering in accordance with IPC-A-610E, overall electrical functionality of assembly and the speed upon which the assembly was produced.

Cash prizes of $500, $250 and $100 will be awarded to the top three finalists at the close of the competition on March 26. In addition to receiving the cash award, the winner will move on to the IPC World Championship to face off with winners from IPC hand soldering competitions from around the world, including the United States, Asia and Europe. The winner of the IPC Hand Soldering World Championship will be awarded a $1,000 cash prize.

IPC APEX EXPO Hand Soldering Competition entries will be accepted until January 31, 2014.
