    Lol I was just being shown this.

    It came up that even with normal soldering onto things that aren't usually going to take solder like Aluminium, by rubbing the hot iron tip into the surface it breaks up inter-layers allowing your solder to bond to the base. So I guess that's where the ultrasonic part really comes from.

    Quality of the joints look terrible though, wouldnt trust it to last long term.
