ACE selective soldering workshops scheduled for August
ACE Production Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of selective soldering systems, is pleased to announce that registration is now open for their upcoming selective soldering workshops.

An introductory workshop will be held August 6-7, 2013 at ACE’s Spokane Valley, WA facility.  This comprehensive 2-day workshop is designed to educate and enhance an attendee’s working knowledge of the overall selective soldering process.  Topics include component limitations, clearance restrictions, flux chemistries, no-clean processing, and solder joint reliability issues, as well as problem solving and process optimization.  The classroom portion will be conducted by well-known process expert Bob Klenke of ITM Consulting while the hands-on portion will be taught by the expert staff members in the ACE application lab.

In addition, an advanced workshop will be held August 13-14, 2013 at the ACE facility.  This in-depth 2-day workshop focuses on providing a detailed understanding of printed circuit board construction such as copper layers, barrel plating and porosity.  The interaction between the printed circuit board and the selective soldering process as well as the heat flow characteristics within thermally challenging multilayer boards will be defined.  The classroom portion of this advanced workshop is instructed by renowned fabrication expert Stan Bentley of DIVSYS International with the hands-on segments taught by the ACE application staff.

The curriculum for these workshops is based on real-world practices and covers all aspects of the selective soldering process.  Handout and reference materials are provided to each attendee.  For more information about these selective soldering workshops, or to register for the workshops, contact Rae Ann Miller at or call 509-924-4898, Ext. 102.
