We are very much looking forward to announcing our sponsor for the book released in November. However, if you have enjoyed and benefited from our previous two FREE soldering books and our many other colour defect guides you can make a small donation before release via our JustGivingPage for PROSTATE CANCER UK

The eBook is based on our practical experience from our first project using robotic soldering in 2018 and a special NPL Good Practice Guide with Dr Chris Hunt using high temperature alloys. In the NPL project we included both contact and laser soldering robots on high and standard lead-free alloys like SnCu, SnAgCu & Sn/Bi/Ag. The authors most recent activity has been with low temperature lead-free cored wire and standard SAC on a special test board designed for the original 2021 Robotic Soldering Experience. More recent work with two suppliers during 2022 and the release of our Robotic Soldering Inspection & Quality Control Wall Charts plus our Low Temperature & Robotic Soldering Photo Library also available soon FREE from
