Balver Zinn Group to Sponsor IPC Hand Soldering Competition at productronica


Reading time ( words)

The Balver Zinn Group will be sponsoring the IPC Hand Soldering Competition (IPC-HSC) scheduled to take place November 14-16, 2017 at productronica in Munich, Germany. Balver Zinn will be providing BRILLIANT B2012 SAC305 (SN97C) solder wire which is halide-free, rosin based and designed for manual and robotic soldering.

B2012 is odorless and shows excellent soldering and wetting performance. The no-clean, halide free solder wire flux technology was developed for rework and touch-up. B2012 is available in SN100C, SAC305 (SN97C), Sn63 alloys with a standard flux content of 2.2%. Balver Zinn wires are available in diameters from 0.3 to 3.5mm.

During the IPC-HSC, industry professionals will demonstrate their soldering skills. Hand soldering of high density printed circuit boards demands highly skilled operators to ensure a zero-defect soldering process, and this competition will recognize the best skills in hand soldering complex printed circuit board assemblies. Over a three day period, participants will compete against each other to build a functional electronics assembly within a 60-minute time limit.

Assemblies will be judged on solder results 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 from IPC licensed master training centers will serve as the judges during the competition.

If you don’t want to compete, but want to show your support for the participants, stop by IPC Booth #307 in Hall A1.

Balver Zinn, Germany is an authorized IPC Distributor with an IPC licensed training center.
