DVD-46C: Introduction to Mechanical Assembly - Hardware & Tools
Explains what a low residue flux is and how it compares to other fluxes. Describes changes to the existing hand soldering process and explains hand soldering theory with low residue fluxes. Discusses visual inspection criteria for solder joints and flux residues, wetting considerations, and the importance of the solder heat bridge. Other topics covered are ideal solder feed rates and techniques, lower temperature soldering and the increased importance of tip maintenance. Soldering demonstrations include through-hole components, gull wings, J-Leads and turret terminals.
This DVD can be used to train new hires or as a refresher for technicians who have been hand soldering for years. It can also help clarify important reasons to modify existing hand soldering techniques.
Time: 30 minutes.
