Soldering is a process of joining two or more metal components together by melting a filler metal (solder) to create a strong and conductive bond. Soldering is commonly used in electronics and metalworking to connect components, wires, or parts, allowing for the efficient transfer of electrical signals or creating strong, permanent connections between metals.
