New IPC Training Video Updates Best Practices for Hand Soldering Terminals

Oct 06, 2010

BANNOCKBURN, IL - Helping electronics manufacturing companies train their staff to enhance product quality and increase efficiency, IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries® has released a new educational video, DVD-18C, Soldering Terminals. The 37-minute video covers industry best practices for soldering wires to commonly used terminals in accordance with the latest IPC-A-610E and J-STD-001E acceptance standards.

Soldering Terminals demonstrates how to properly solder wires to turret, cup, bifurcated, hook and pierced terminals. The video also illustrates proper wire-wrapping techniques, use of a solder heat bridge for effective heat transfer, soldering for inspectability and evaluation of acceptable and unacceptable solder joints.

"We've added all new close-up photography that greatly enhances the visual quality and goes a long way in helping the student understand, and remember, acceptable soldering practices and techniques," notes Mark Pritchard, IPC director of media training. "The video is an extremely cost-efficient tool to educate staff in a clear and memorable way."

The training DVD includes a leader’s guide, review questions, IPC training certification documents for students who successfully complete the final exam and English subtitles for hearing-impaired or ESL students.

Soldering Terminals is the latest addition to IPC’s comprehensive library of educational videos on electronics assembly, covering topics from safety to standards. IPC training videos can be used for an unlimited number of students at one facility and are available in DVD format for a classroom setting or online video training (OVT) format for self-paced learning.
