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.
