Soldering Workshop

Date: 24 Mar 2022

Location: CEI building

Description: Soldering is a joining method used for a wide range of parts, including delicate electronic components. Solder is a metal alloy designed to melt at very low temperatures, and various methods of soldering can be used to join parts together. Although most soldering is automated today, manual soldering is an important skill for assembly technicians, researchers, students, and engineers. This solder training workshop class addressed the knowledge and techniques required to produce high-quality manually soldered joints. Eric Pillon and Jake Blythe provided an overview of basic manual soldering equipment and proper safety precautions for soldering. Different soldering alloys, including lead-free solders and also the proper soldering techniques for joining PCB components discussed in this event.
