Helping electronics manufacturing companies train staff, a trade association has released an educational video to teach viewers about hand soldering terminals. The 37-minute video covers industry best practices for soldering wires to commonly used terminals in accordance with the latest IPC-A-610E and J-STD-001E acceptance standards.
Offered by IPC-Association Connecting Electronics Industries, Bannockburn,

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

acceptable soldering practices and techniques," notes Mark Pritchard, IPC

The training DVD includes a leader's guide, review questions, IPC training
certification documents for students who successfully complete the final exam,
