JBC, a developer of soldering and rework tools, is a Premier Sponsor of the IPC APEX EXPO 2016 Hand Soldering Competition and the IPC World Championship, which both take place at the IPC Booth on March 15-17 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

This contest acknowledges the best skills in hand soldering complex printed board assemblies. Over two days, competitors from around the world, including United States, Europe and Asia, will compete for a cash prize of $1,000.

Participants must build a functional electronics assembly within a time limit of 30 minutes. Assemblies will be judged on soldering in accordance with IPC-A-610E Class 3 criteria, the speed at which the assembly was produced and the overall electrical functionality of the assembly. Robert Fornefeld, Shelley Holt and Woo-Che Shim will be this year's judges.

JBC continues to support the best soldering experts to help them succeed in their work. The company has recently sponsored the IPC competition held at productronica 2015 in Munich.
