SOLDERING TECHNIQUE

 

 

 

Overview

The following series of photographs show the process of soldering.  Care should be taken not to overheat the PCB or component but they need to reach a suitable temperature for the solder to 'take' to them both to form a reliable connection.

 

 

The iron is placed at the junction of the component and the PCB.  Solder at the ready.

 

A small amount of solder is applied to the iron to assist in the transfer of heat.

 

The solder is slightly withdrawn.

 

Solder ready to apply again.

 

Apply around 1 cm of solder.

 

Still applying the 1 cm of solder.  The pool of molten solder should be visibly flowing around the component.

 

Solder is withdrawn just before the iron is removed.

When cool, examine for conductivity.
