The focus of this training program is on hand soldering basics using lead free solder. For a comparative program on hand soldering basicis using tin-lead solder, please see DVD-42C.
For a video comparison and explanation of the differences between tin-lead and lead free hand soldering in general, see our program DVD-45C.
DVD-43C explains proper workstation practices, personal safety considerations, ESD prevention, soldering iron types, temperature selection, tip types and applications, heat transfer principles, how to avoid thermal damage, lead free solder types, sizes and applications, flux theory, low residue fluxes, wetting principles, soldering through-hole components onto printed circuit boards, tip tinning, tool maintenance, reheating solder, heat sinks/thermal shunts, soldering thick boards, preheating and flux residue cleaning. It also explains PTH solder joint acceptance requirements from both IPC-A-610 and J-STD-001.
Available with optional English subtitles for the hearing-impaired and ESL students, this DVD program includes section review questions and a final Training Certification Exam* to insure that your students understand and retain the required background knowledge before they begin hands-on training. Also includes a printable Certificate for operators with a passing grade on the exam. Time: 39 minutes.
Use our Free Paper-Based Testing with reuseable PDF certificates of completion for ISO “verification of training,” or take advantage of our Free Online Testing so you no longer have to grade tests or generate certificates by hand. (Both options are for unlimited students with no expiration.)
