IPC Hand Soldering Competition to Heat Up SMT Hybrid Packaging 2016

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, March 8, 2016 IPC’s Hand Soldering Competition at SMT Hybrid Packaging 2016 will see skilled competitors go soldering iron to soldering iron, April 26-28, as they compete for cash prizes and a coveted spot at the IPC Hand Soldering World Championship at IPC APEX EXPO® in San Diego in 2017.        

Hand soldering of high density printed boards demands highly skilled operators to ensure a zero-defect soldering process, and this contest — IPC’s annual competition at  SMT Hybrid Packaging — will recognize the best skills in hand soldering complex printed board assemblies. Over three days, participants will compete against each other to build a functional electronics assembly within a 60-minute time limit. Assemblies will be judged on soldering in accordance with IPC-A-610F Class 3 criteria, the speed at which the assembly was produced and overall electrical functionality of the assembly. IPC-A-610 Master Instructors will serve as judges.

The IPC Hand Soldering Competition winner and two runners-up will each earn cash prizes: 1st place — €300; 2nd place — €200; 3rd place — €100. In addition, the first place winner will earn a chance to compete against the best hand soldering technicians from around the world at the IPC World Championship at IPC APEX EXPO® in San Diego, in March 2017.
