The basis of any electronic workshop is a soldering iron, but do you know what best serves your profession? There are many different types of soldering irons and devices on the market that help with soldering. It is worth paying attention to what we solder, what technology, temperature and tip. The basis of modern soldering machines is reliability and compliance with technical standards.
Choosing a soldering iron for your own needs you need to know how much money you want to spend on buying it and possible accessories, such as additional exchangeable tips, soldering binders, fluxes, tin feeders, tripods, crucibles, PCB heaters and many others. Additionally, it is worth to focus on proper lighting of the workplace. Coming back to the soldering stations, there are many models of different power giving different soldering temperature, the possibility of microprocessor control. They can be divided into stationary soldering stations and devices for manual assembly and disassembly. Multifunctional soldering stations are used wherever the user wants: failure-free operation, quick exchange of the mains plug, low operating costs, meeting technical standards and making connections in the lowest possible temperatures. It is worth focusing on the advantages of the devices that we are planning to purchase. An additional advantage of a soldering iron should be ESD (antistatic protection), which does not allow for the formation of electrostatic discharges.
The choice of available soldering tips is also considerable. This allows you to work with the elements that are pierced and assembled in SMT and SMD technology. Additionally, it is worth to focus on the precision of soldering and temperature stabilization. If you are thinking about a soldering station, it is worth that the housing is durable and has a regulated temperature and the ability to sleep or automatically turn off and on.
