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 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

“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

“The Optimizer made us re-think how we should wave solder.  We shouldn’t blame the board design as often and we cannot rely on a thermal profiler to control our wave process.”

– Martin Orozco, Process Engineer, TRW Automotive

“Your wave soldering seminar gave us concrete methods and procedures completely different and beyond anything we’ve ever heard or seen from other vendors or ‘experts’.”

– Juan Guevara, SMT and Through Hole Manager, Alps Automotive

“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

“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

“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

“Prior to investing in the Optimizer, we relied on a thermal profiler but we could not solve our skipping and insufficients problems.  In fact, those defects were not due to improper temperatures at all but instead to how our boards run through our solder waves.”

– Ricardo Soto, Process Engineering Manager, Tyco

“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
