Video Covers Hand Soldering of Terminals
Offered by IPC-Association Connecting Electronics Industries, Bannockburn, Ill., the DVD demonstrates how to properly solder wires to turret, cup, bifurcated, hook and pierced terminals. The video also illustrates proper wire-wrapping techniques, use of a solder heat bridge for effective heat transfer, soldering for inspectability and evaluation of acceptable and unacceptable solder joints.
"We've added closeup photography that greatly enhances the visual quality and goes a long way in helping the student understand, and remember, acceptable soldering practices and techniques," notes Mark Pritchard, IPC director of media training.
The training DVD includes a leader's guide, review questions, IPC training certification documents for students who successfully complete the final exam, and English subtitles for hearing-impaired or ESL students.
DVD-18C, Soldering Terminals, is available to IPC member companies for $495 and nonmembers for $595. It also is offered as a site or global license for an online version.
