The company has received in San Diego this prestigious recognition.
JBC announces that it has been awarded the IPC APEX EXPO Innovation Award for JBC Net, the first smart system to optimize traceability and resources in hand soldering.
JBC Net has stood out among thirty-four products and services that were reviewed, rated and scored by a panel of industry experts.
The award was presented to the company during John Mitchell’s keynote. “The product and service submissions were certainly innovative and the companies did an exceptional job in identifying their product’s unique value in the industry”, said the IPC president and CEO.
After three days and with a meaningful growth in attendance, Nepcon South China drew to a close this week. JBC has met the visitor’s expectations by introducing its digital and automated innovations.
Technology companies are continually on the leading-edge, considering unconventional and innovating ways to meet the market demands. JBC has identified this. So we have developed new solutions to achieve greater levels of productivity and efficiency.
You are ready to start a soldering job: PCB and electronic components are clean and free from any contamination; you have a good quality solder flux; the most efficient tip has been chosen… but suddenly realize that oxidation has appeared due to an incorrect maintenance of the tip and the equipment.
What can you do to remove it? Just follow these steps according to the amount of rust!
IPC APEX EXPO 2017 is a three-day event like no other in the printed circuit board and electronics manufacturing industry. JBC is ready for the show that begins today 14th February at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA. Stop by booth 715 to experience our new soldering solutions live!
You can also attend our technical sessions on IPC standards and rework applications given by Martin Garcia, an experienced IPC trainer who recently joined the company.

In most cases, the factor that most influences the duration of a tip is the working temperature.
Before the ROHS regulation (Restriction Of Hazardous Substances) came into effect on the 1st July 2006, solder wire that contained lead was permitted. After this date the use of lead was prohibited (as well as other substances) in all equipment and processes except the following: medical apparatus, monitoring and surveillance equipment, measuring instruments and equipment specifically designed for the military and space industry as well the car sector (car control systems, airbags, etc.), rail transport, etc.
The special characteristic of the most common lead alloys is that the fusion occurs at around 180°C. With the most common lead-free alloys this happen approximately at 220°C. So the difference of 40°C meant it was necessary to increase the temperature of the solder tool to achieve a solder joint in the same length of time (if soldering time is increased, then the components and the printed circuits may be damaged) and this reduced the life of the tips and increased oxidation.
