The higher temperatures and increased tin content in lead-free solders demands an increased awareness of best-industry practices for soldering iron tip maintenance. With tips costing from $10 to over $100, this new IPC training video can reduce the cost of process consumables -– and increase product quality.

Soldering Iron Tip Care (DVD-15C) is the ideal educational tool to show your technicians how to properly care for soldering iron tips – and avoid many of the pitfalls associated with lead-free and tin-lead hand soldering. Section one provides an overview of tip life issues. Section two discusses oxidation build-up, recommended tip maintenance and overuse of tip tinners and other abrasive products. Section three explains the typical mechanisms that damage tips and recommended procedures to minimize these effects.

DVD-15C includes English subtitles for hearing-impaired and ESL students – Leader’s Guide, Review Questions and IPC Training Certification certificates* of completion for students who pass the final examination. Time: 23 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.)
