JBC Sponsors the 2016 IPC Hand Soldering World Championship


Reading time ( words)

JBC, a developer of soldering and rework tools, is a Premier Sponsor of the IPC APEX EXPO 2016 Hand Soldering Competition and the IPC World Championship, which both take place at the IPC Booth on March 15-17 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

This contest acknowledges the best skills in hand soldering complex printed board assemblies. Over two days, competitors from around the world, including United States, Europe and Asia, will compete for a cash prize of $1,000.

Participants must build a functional electronics assembly within a time limit of 30 minutes. Assemblies will be judged on soldering in accordance with IPC-A-610E Class 3 criteria, the speed at which the assembly was produced and the overall electrical functionality of the assembly. Robert Fornefeld, Shelley Holt and Woo-Che Shim will be this year's judges.

JBC continues to support the best soldering experts to help them succeed in their work. The company has recently sponsored the IPC competition held at productronica 2015 in Munich.

IPC Standards Development: Business Challenges and an Inside View

10/28/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
With increasing frequency, standardising the standards, such as ISO 9201, imposes certain rules that must be met to ensure “fair play” amongst the supply chain. There will be those familiar with hearing about “false positives/negatives” and “never trust the salesman,” so mitigating these is no easy task. However, there is the chance for each 5-30 Task Group to review industry requirements and set out the work program for the ensuing period. With that in mind, much of what follows is based on comments we learn about from our industry around the world, many of whom are not yet IPC members. Yes, this is a membership recruitment drive, unashamedly, as well as a search for volunteers willing to help create the standards of tomorrow.
