ACE to Conduct Solderability Testing and Component Lead Tinning Workshop

Reading time ( words)

ACE Production Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of selective soldering systems, lead tinning systems and lead tinning services, is pleased to announce that it will conduct a one of a kind solderability testing and component lead tinning workshop.  This much anticipated workshop will be held February 23-24, 2016 at ACE’s Spokane Valley, Washington facility and registration is now open and seats are available.

Removal of gold plating, replacing RoHS component finish with tin-lead, refurbishing of legacy components and tin whisker mitigation are the main drivers behind the increasing awareness of component re-tinning using the hot solder dip method.  It is highly recommended the re-tinning process be carried out using dual dynamic solder pots, controlled flux application and defined process control in accordance with GEIA-STD-0006 to enhance component solderability.

The workshop will feature demonstrations of the hot solder dip method of both through-hole and SMT components featuring the ACE LTS200 and LTS300 lead tinning systems.  ACE has a complete library of fixtures for lead tinning of virtually all through-hole and SMT components.

Also demonstrated during the workshop will be the new ACE STS-202 solderability tester that is capable of performing solderability testing to determine the solderability of component leads and terminations prior to being joined in a soldering operation.  The system utilizes the proven dip and look test method in conformance with all IPC, ANSI and MIL standards including J-STD-002, MIL-STD-883 Method 2003 and MIL-STD-202 Method 208.

The workshop will feature a combination of classroom curriculum and hands-on demonstrations that clarify the requirements of the new J-STD-001 Rev F and GEIA-STD-0006 standards, as well as those who wish to advance their in-depth knowledge of the lead tinning process.  For more information about this solderability and lead tinning workshop, or to register for the workshop, contact Rae Ann Miller at or call 509-924-4898, Ext. 102.
