Science of Soldering© — The Only Training Compatible With Modern Components
Meet A-610 and J-STD-001 Requirements Easily Without Touchup or Rework
A-610 and J-STD-001 are industry-wide acceptance standards. But how do you meet those acceptance standards? A-610 and J-STD-001 training is only concerned with identifying defects; they provide no help in preventing defects. So operators resort to touchup and rework to make defects look reliable.
Unfortunately, a reworked solder connection is just a more attractive defect. Even worse, the additional heat from touchup and rework degrades components. Moreover, heat damage caused by using the techniques taught in other training coursesis responsible for most product failures. (The traditional soldering techniques were developed for attaching wires to vacuum tube sockets. Using these techniques guarantees component failures. Please read this for more information.)
The Process Knowledge That Ensures You Will Exceed the Highest Reliability Requirements
Science of Soldering© provides the process knowledge that ensures you will meet the highest reliability requirements requirements easily and consistently without touchup or rework. This is essential knowledge that you won't get from A–610 and J–STD–001 classes. For the operator curriculum, please go here. For the engineering curriculum, please go here.
Your failure rates and warranty claims will go down and your worker productivity will go up. Science of Soldering© quickly pays for itself in savings from higher productivity and reliability.
Science of Soldering© delivers much more than any other solder training and certification. All classes take place in your own offices and cost less than you think. And Science of Soldering© is the high reliability soldering certification recognized as the symbol of excellence by the leading electronics manufacturers.
The High Reliability Soldering Certification Recognized By the Industry Leaders
Science of Soldering© will develop your employees’ abilities in critically important ways that other training doesn’t. A few examples:
Education Through Experiments and Demonstrations
Science of Soldering© teaches by troubleshooting a complex hands–on soldering process problem. In solving the problem (which involves several causes rather than a single root cause), the class learns the critical scientific forces that control all soldering from simple hand soldering to the most complex machine soldering.
Every class — for operators, engineers and managers — begins with this basic knowledge development. Operator classes then focus on further skills development and comprehension of reliability requirements (click here for a typical curriculum). Engineering sessions then go into the science in greater detail and explain machine soldering and process management (curriculum) including hands–on shop–floor implementation assistance. The result is that everyone in the company shares the same basic knowledge and terminology. Operators, who generally see their function as reworking/touching up defects, gain the confidence and ability to report process and materials issues to engineers for corrective action.
Yes, Science of Soldering© does make control of the soldering process easy. But it also improves inter–departmental communication, develops problem–solving skills, generates curiosity and a willingness to question every aspect of the organization. In short, it does everything lean manufacturing wants to do — but Science of Soldering© works much faster and more effectively than generic lean because the approach is specific to electronics manufacturing.
Science of Soldering© is not like anything you have ever experienced. It is so different that the only way to truly appreciate how and why it works is by experiencing it.
