This training program is intended for operators who already understand the basics of hand soldering, and simply need to learn the differences between soldering with tin-lead vs. lead free solder. For a more detailed lead free hand soldering video that also covers basic soldering theory, please see DVD-43C.
Now you can show your operators the subtle differences between tin-lead and lead-free soldering techniques & inspection criteria - with this new training DVD. This program is designed to assist operators and soldering technicians to make the transition to lead-free with knowledge and confidence.
DVD-45C describes these new types of solder alloys, and discusses the higher melting temperatures that can potentially damage the assembly.
Section 1 also explains required changes due to increased surface tension, more active fluxes, and additional cleaning considerations.
Section 2 demonstrates modified techniques for soldering through-hole components into plated-through holes, and wires to pierced terminals, then demonstrates PTH rework / vacuum extraction - focusing on damage prevention from increased soldering temperatures.
Section 3 compares tin-lead / lead-free solder joints to the visual acceptance criteria from IPC-A-610D - with original microphotography of target conditions, textural differences, minimum and maximum solder, wetting requirements, cold / disturbed joints, fractures, lifted lands, thermal damage, bridging, projections, blowholes and solder balls. Time: 23 minutes.
Notes on DVD / OVT Product Descriptions:
Items preceded by an order number beginning with DVD, are digital video products. These DVDs are designed to play on DVD movie players. They can also be played on computers using DVD playback software.
Items preceded by OVT are Online Video Training products. These digital movies are designed for playback on computers / networks – depending on the license type you purchase. OVT-(S) is Site License (single facility). OVT-(G) is a Global License (multi-site).
Training Certification is an ideal way to train and verify competency in key subject areas, like ESD Control, Lead Free Soldering, Component ID, Safety, and Acceptance Standards. These multi-media based resources include everything a trainer needs to instruct, test and certify that their operators have completed a course successfully. All students with a grade of 70% or better on the final examinations qualify for IPC Training Certification. Please see the sample certificate (.pdf) which allows for user-customization of student name, instructor, and date of completion. There is no expiration / renewal date for any Training Certification program, and they may be administered by anyone in your company.
As an operator-level credential, Training Certification demonstrates mastery of the specific theory and knowledge contained in the course, as evidence of competency for ISO training requirements through an industry-developed training program. Training Certification does not qualify instructors or students to teach or interpret IPC specifications, or assure proficiency in the physical skills required to create products to the requirements of IPC specifications.
Like all IPC Video / DVD, OVT and Computer-Based (CD) training programs, Training Certification is available for unlimited students per the particular licensing structure chosen. These media-based training solutions are created in cooperation with volunteer industry experts – to ensure technical accuracy – and are free from commercial bias.
