Improving tips life

In order to get satisfactory tip lives, especially using LEAD FREE alloys the following should be taken into account.

· Our experience shows that 90% of solder joints using JBC tools can be performed successfully at 350ºC (660ºF), in any case it is not recommended to exceed 370ºC (700ºF).

· The force applied on a soldering iron should not be more that it’s own weight.

· To prevent the tip from oxidizing and corroding fresh solder should be added before putting the iron back in its stand.

· Adapt the tip size correctly to the solder joint.

· Do not apply abrasive surfaces to clean the plated area.

· Use a mild flux.

· Keep sponges clean and damp, not swamped.

· Only use original JBC sponges; other sponges may contain substances that reduce tip life.

· Use distilled/de-ionized water and avoid tap water; tap water contains substances that reduce tip life.

· Only use tip re-tinner when absolutely necessary; when the tip is oxidized and cannot be cleaned using the sponge or other non agressive cleaning methods.

Time to reach 350ºC
JBC - Time to reach 350ºC
JBC stations can reach 350ºC (662ºF)
in only two seconds, while others need between 10 and 90 seconds.

JBC - Time to reach 350ºC
JBC stations only drop 20ºC (68ºF) where others drop as much as 70ºC (158ºF)
Process for 3 solder joints

The JBC exclusive heating system
reaches and recovers the temperature extremely fast.

This innovative technology reduces
the risk of damaging components by applying excessive heat and improves
the quality of your soldering or
desoldering jobs.
