Advanced Soldering Techniques (SMD)

(Soldering) Skills for advanced soldering technicians


Are your soldering technicians up on the latest techniques — for the latest components?

The training advanced soldering techniques (SMD) teaches your (solder) technicians how to solder SMD components on a circuit board in a safely and responsibly way with the challenges of contemporary hand soldering.
The training alternates theory with practical and vice versa. During the training one gets more tips and tricks to keep soldering better under control. Furthermore, there is the possibility to go into practical problems and to look for alternative solutions.

There have been significant changes in electronics assembly: from the introduction of new styles and the miniaturization of components, to the transition from tin-lead to lead free solder alloys. Some of the old methods of hand soldering just don’t work the same way they used to. This training will provide your soldering technicians with best-industry practices to master the challenges of contemporary hand soldering.

During the training we teach your (soldering) technicians the latest tricks of the trade to make rework faster and to help avoid damage to your assemblies.
