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.


“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

“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

“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

“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 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

“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

“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

“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
