Soldering is the heart of electronics manufacturing. Inspection, touchup, rework and failures exist only because of defective soldering. Those costs have put many companies out of business and driven the migration of electronics manufacturing to cheap labor countries.

Most companies spend great amounts of time and money on solder training. But the rework and failures continue despite those huge investments. Why? Because they're buying the wrong kind of training. Their training consists of memorizing pictures of acceptable connections without providing the process knowledge needed to make those connections.

Why settle for expensive A-610 and J-STD-001 training that takes employees away from work for up to a week without making them more productive or increasing product reliability?

More than 35 years ago, we created the hands-on program that provides the essential process knowledge required to ensure perfect soldering. Instead of days spent memorizing pictures of solder connections, our students  learn through experiments, demonstrations, and troubleshooting process problems along with thorough videos, discussions and workbook exercises.

And, because many people have limited formal education, the course for operators and technicians is understandable regardless of education (or native language) while engineering classes are more detailed.

Soldering is Science

Soldering is a science not an art, so we call the course Science of Soldering©. Using hands-on experiments, demonstrations, process troubleshooting exercises and videos, the curriculum provides thorough explanations of the forces that determine soldering outcomes, including:

  • The differences between soldering and gluing
  • Why most "soldering" was actually a type of welding and why it matters
  • Intermetallics
  • Wetting and wetting forces
  • Oxides, oxidation and deoxidation
  • Solderability
  • Flux
  • Surface cleanliness
  • Solders
  • Heat
