    IPC Hand Soldering Competition at NEPCON Thailand 2018
    June 20 – 22, 2018 – Bangkok, Thailand

    Who’s the BEST of the BEST in HAND SOLDERING?

    Do you or someone you know have what it takes to win at hand soldering? The time to shine is at the IPC Hand Soldering Competition in conjunction with NEPCON Thailand 2018.


    The reliability of electronic equipment is ensured by zero-defect soldering processes. This contest recognizes the best skills in hand soldering complex printed board assemblies.

    The competition will be held during NEPCON Thailand 2018 located at BITEC | Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre, Bangkok, Thailand.

    Over three days, participants will compete against each other to build a functional electronics assembly within a 50-minute time limit. Assemblies will be judged on soldering in accordance with IPC-A-610G Class 3 criteria, the speed at which the assembly was produced and overall electrical functionality of the assembly. IPC-A-610 Master Instructors will serve as judges.


    Cash awards will be given to the winner and two runner-ups.

    The winner will receive one Solder Station from JBC and also get the chance to compete at the IPC World Championship at IPC APEX EXPO 2019, San Diego, CA, USA in January 29 – 31, 2019.
