JBC is a Gold Sponsor of the IPC’s Hand Soldering Competition at SMT Hybrid Packaging 2016, which will be held in Nuremberg (Germany) on April 26-28.
This contest will recognize the best skills in hand soldering complex printed board assemblies. Over three days, participants will compete against each other to build a functional electronics assembly within a 60-minute time limit.
Assemblies will be judged on soldering in accordance with IPC-A-610F Class 3 criteria, the speed at which the assembly was produced and overall electrical functionality of the assembly. IPC-A-610 Master Instructors will serve as judges.
JBC awards the winner
The IPC Hand Soldering Competition winner and the two runners-up will be presented with cash prizes: 1st place — €300; 2nd place — €200; 3rd place — €100. The winner will win a place in the competition of the best hand soldering technicians from around the world at the IPC World Championship at IPC APEX EXPO® in San Diego, in March 2017.
