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 from IPC. 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.

DVD-45C includes optional English subtitles for hearing-impaired and ESL students, a Leader's Guide with Review Questions and certificates of completion for students who pass the written test.* 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.)

**** To host IPC training programs on your own PC, corporate network/intranet, or Learning Management System (LMS), please see our automated, computer-based Online Video Training (OVT) format. (Equivalent OVT program is listed under "Related Products," below.) Or, you may access the entire video training library, as well as automated testing programs, via the IPC website, using our Online Training Library (OTL) format. Site and Global licenses are available for both options.****

*Includes Training Certification.
