Throughout 1999 Speedline Technologies will be running another series of its extremely successful solder training school workshops at its UK headquarters in Reading.

The highly practical and respected courses will focus on a wide range of major soldering and assembly challenges that face today's electronics manufacturers. These range from how to obtain the most effective results from traditional wave soldering machines, through to advanced techniques for determining optimum reflow profiles for complex boards.

Hands-on training will be supplemented by leading-edge seminar, video and CD ROM-based presentations produced by industry renowned training expert Bob Willis. The Workshop of Machine Soldering is the longest running training course on soldering in the world (Plate 1).

The aim of all of the courses will be to equip attendees with the ability to understand and improve their own processes more fully, and to be able to effectively identify and eliminate the root causes of the board defects they encounter.
