Many through-hole components are manually inserted, and hand soldered into SMT assemblies. This media training program will teach your operators and technicians best industry practices to make sure the job is performed properly and efficiently.
This new video demonstrates manual preparation and hand soldering for through-hole components, including axial, radial and multi-leaded components.
Contents include lead straightening, lead forming, lead clinching, stress relief bends, polarity, wetting, vertical mount components, spacers, DIP lead preparation/straightening and hand soldering.
Through-hole component prep and hand soldering provide the visual training your operators need to safely prepare and install through-hole components onto electronic assemblies, to help reduce costly and time-consuming rework, repairs and scrap.
