6 things people should know about the Industry 4.0

The Industry 4.0 is on everyone’s lips. There is no doubt that the next generation of manufacturing will be driven by connectivity. In some sectors, such as banks, tourism or telecommunications, it has caused a real shakeup.

Industry 4.0 connectivity

However, the electronics assembly industry has approached this 4th industrial revolution and the Internet of Things very quietly.

While not having a consensus or standardized protocol to meet the changes brought about by the Industry 4.0, many people wonder what its benefits are and how it can help companies reach their goals.

Best soldering practices

How many solder joints can your tips do?
It varies by the tip geometry, the thickness of the tip’s iron coating, the temperature settings, the solder, the flux used and the operator skills.
JBC features tips which can perform up to 100,000 solder joints.

How often and when do I need to use the tip tinner?

The tip tinner / cleaner is a chemical method to clean and retin the tip at the same time.
It should be used only when alternative methods fail (i.e. sponge, brass) and a very active cleaning method is needed.

Do I have to change cartridges anytime I want to solder at a different temperature?
No, you are free to choose any temperature with any cartridge. If desired the temperature can easily be locked at a fixed level.

How does the JBC heat up so quickly?

tweezersHow does the JBC heat up so quickly compared to older technology irons?

JBC Soldering Irons are fourth generation soldering technology. We use one wire buried deep in the tip of the copper to “read and feed.”

Our thermocouple and heating element wire are one in the same and are microprocessor driven over a sensor at 60 hertz utilizing up to 140 watts on demand in a very low mass cartridge.

This is why our thermal performance cannot be matched. It is technolgy compatible with todays needs, as well as tomorrows. Our competitors are using technolgy invented 20+ years ago with little advancement.

Introducing: JBC Soldering Tools

JBC has a 2 tools and a 4 tools stations.
How many desoldering irons can I connect to them?

Always 1.
The 2 tools station has 2 connectors + 1 special connector for the desoldering pump and the 4 tools stations has 4 connectors + 1 special connector for the de desoldering pump.

When I look at the rework station RMST I see no tweezers in it. Can I connect them to it?
Yes, you can.
When you purchase an RMST you will not get them though. You will have to purchase them separately and don’t forget the stand for them!
