Technology Information Corporation is the worldwide leader in wave solder process improvement.

Proven products and high impact procedures for eliminating wave soldering defects and preventing their recurrence are provided directly to you.

Assisting engineers just like yourself in reaching your quality goals, you will benefit from our successful track record of quickly and significantly improving board quality and single-minded focus on wave soldering excellence.

The widely acclaimed Wave Solder Training Workshop and On-Site Expert Troubleshooting programs offer you immediate and enduring results.  Your defects are reduced and eliminated.  Your entire wave soldering team is empowered with unparalleled insights and proprietary techniques for daily process optimization and continuous improvement of your board quality.

You will be shown how to easily document your process and progress every step of the way.  This includes overcoming defects you may have all but given up on, like those caused by poor board design.

The award winning Wave Optimizer is the most advanced, easy-to-use, accurate, comprehensive, battle-proven and popular wave solder improvement tool.  It measures all aspects of your wave soldering process – flux application, temperatures and, most importantly, board-wave interaction – in a single pass through the wave machine.  All data is shown to you instantly on its one-of-a-kind display.

Founded in 1992, we are grateful for our premier industry position and continually growing customer base throughout the world.

If you are not already our customer, we will appreciate the opportunity to assist you in significantly reducing your wave soldering defects, quickly lowering your daily production costs and saving your entire team a lot of headaches and aggravation.

Feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss your specific needs and objectives.


“Your instructor solved our excessive solder and bridging by adjusting our process based on our Optimizer’s data, and showed us how we can easily do this by ourselves.”

– Gary Wirth, Production Supervisor, Honeywell

“The Optimizer identified the root cause of chronic skipping on our boards.  We eliminated the disparallelism it measured.  This had an immediate, positive effect on board quality.”

– Aldrina Paredes, Training manager, Bose Electronics

“Many of our voids and insufficients were assumed to be design defects.  Your training instructor used our Optimizer’s measurements to make adjustments easily and now we should never see these defects in our production again.  What a relief!”

– Enda Moran, manufacturing Manager, CEL

“Our main problem was recurring insufficients.  We made many attempts to address the problem, to no avail.  By using the Optimizer to graph our immersion depth, we identified and corrected turbulence in our main wave.  This has benefited our production process.”

– Jose Martinez, Maintenance Engineering Supervisor, Rain Bird

“The proactive nature of your methodology, which allows us to identify board defects and production issues before they happen, is critical for raising yields.”

– Luis Lopez, Operations Manager, Benchmark Electronics

“In all my years in PCB assembly, I have never seen such an enthusiastic response to a training program.  Other vendors never really improved our problems like you have.”

– Luis Velazquez, Engineering Manager, Plexus

“I have worked with wave solder machines for years and can honestly say that this was the most informative and thorough class that I have attended on this subject.

– Dale Shedd, Process Engineer, Adtran

“Your company walked in here and quickly showed my staff how to reduce defects that we’ve had to live with for a long time.”

– Dennis Herrick, Director of Operations, Condor

“We thought we had tried everything possible to eliminate a bridging problem.  Using the Optimizer, in only a couple of minutes we got rid of the bridging completely by adjusting the dwell time.”

– Alfred Santilla, Wave Solder Supervisor, Universal Lighting

“Using the Optimizer’s techniques every day on one board type, we saved 257 hours of touch up and rework per month.  This saved our facility over $50,000 in 12 months on this one board type alone.”

– John Lanferman, Process Characterization Group Leader, Celestica
