Your BEST choice
In Solder Rework/Repair, Solder Training and Tools

April 2013

 

Dear Electronics Assembly Colleague:
Recently I had the opportunity to get in some spring bike riding in the California wine country. While it was a refreshing 50 degrees, the beauty and hills made for a great day in Healdsburg, CA (Sonoma County). 

Start looking for our per pre-announcements for this years' BEST tech symposium on Bottom Termination Components (QFNs, LCCs and LGAs).

We are proud now to provide training services in the Cleveland area.

All the best,
Bob Wettermann
