On February 12, Jürgen Friedrich, Head of Ersa Application Technology, welcomed a total of 34 participants to the second international know-how seminar for “Lead-Free Wave and Selective Soldering”. The two-day Ersa technology seminar on lead-free wave and selective soldering was attended by soldering experts from customers and international Ersa subsidiaries from ten countries. The visitors came from Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Spain and the Czech Republic. In the first theory part the interaction of relevant process parameters was discussed, as well as process monitoring and handling of soldering defects. The goal of any electronics production should always be to eliminate soldering defects in advance by means of an optimally adjusted soldering process, thus paving the way to the perfect solder joint.
In the afternoon, the transfer to the adjacent Application and Demo Center took place, where theory was transferred and consolidated in groups in vivid hands-on units for wave and selective soldering. The change after 90 minutes ensured that all participants were able to immerse themselves intensively in the two subject areas of wave and selective soldering. After a concluding question and answer session, the day was rounded off with a joint dinner in the manor house, before further theory and practice blocks on wave and selective soldering were scheduled for the second day. “The international soldering expertise gathered here is invaluable – on behalf of Ersa GmbH, I would like to thank all participants for the extremely stimulating exchange of ideas,” said Ersa Applications Technology Manager Jürgen Friedrich at the end of the two days.
