Overview of Soldering

Provided by: ToolingU

“Overview of Soldering” defines soldering, describes the tools used in soldering, and discusses the various soldering processes where oldering is a low-heat joining process used in applications where the heat of welding or brazing would be too great or where precise control is required. There are a number of manual and automatic soldering processes. Soldering is particularly useful in electronics and jewelry fabrication as well as in creating air and watertight seals in plumbing and other systems. After this class, users will be able to define soldering, identify the important tools involved in soldering, list soldering safety concerns, and describe the various soldering processes. It is essential for any operator who may be required to solder materials to understand the basic soldering equipment, processes, and practices.
