JBC is a Gold Sponsor of the IPC’s Hand Soldering Competition at MIDEST Paris, which will be held at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center on March 27-30.
This contest will recognize the best skills in hand soldering complex printed board assemblies. Over three days, participants will compete against each other to build a functional electronics assembly within a 60-minute time limit.
Assemblies will be judged on soldering in accordance with IPC-A-610F Class 3 criteria, the speed at which the assembly was produced and overall electrical functionality of the assembly. Master IPC trainers from IFTEC Institute will serve as judges.
