IPC Hand Soldering Competition 
Hall 7, Booth 500

This contest recognizes the best skills in hand soldering complex printed board assemblies. Hand soldering of high density printed boards demands highly skilled operators to ensure a zero-defect soldering process.

Who is the best of the best? If you think you have what it takes to be a champion of hand soldering, then bring your skills to the IPC Hand Soldering Competition at SMT Hybrid Packaging 2015! The competition will be held at the IPC hand soldering competition Booth 500, Hall 7.

Over three days, participants will compete against each other to build a functional electronics assembly within a 45-minute time limit. Assemblies will be judged on soldering in accordance with IPC-A-610F 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 the judges.


Cash awards will be given to the winner and two runners-up. In addition, the winner will be invited to compete in the 2016 IPC Hand Soldering Championship, where IPC will cover the cost of airfare and hotel. IPC reserves the right, in its sole discretion on selection of the participants.

1st place — €300; 2nd place — €200; 3rd place — €100
