Top 10 Reasons
to buy JBC



The key to successful
hand soldering

in a lead free area

1. Soldering at lower temps

High Power / mass ration tips and integrated heater / thermocouple delivers the best thermal recovery in the market along with lower soldering temperatures.

● JBC Stations only drop 20ºC (36ºF) where others drop as much as 70ºC (126ºF).

● This innovative technology allows a reduction of the temperature by at least 50ºC (90ºF).

● Lower temperature reduces the risk of damaging components and improves quality of soldering and desoldering.

2. Fast temp recovery


JBC’s stations work with the JBC Exclusive Heating System which recovers tip temperature extremely quickly. This increases work efficiency and allows the user to work with lower temperatures.

Heating system principles:


● JBC system can reach 350ºC (662ºF) in only 2 seconds, while others need between 10 and 90 seconds.



● The fully integreated thermal sensor to the heater ensures an extremely quick temperature recovery.

● The compact element optimizes heat transfer by reducing the thermal barriers.

3. Tip life x 5 times

Thanks to automatic detection of the tool in the stand, JBC Soldering and Rework Stations allow the tools to enter into Sleep & Hibernation mode when not being used. As a result, tip life lasts up to 5 times longer.



Longer Tip life

Tip life increases exponentially by using lower temperatures as shown. Using the Sleep Mode, the temperature is further reduced, which extends tip life by 5.


Sleep Mode

Sleep Mode automatically lowers tip temperature below solder melting point when the tool rests in the stand.
It prevents the dissolution of the tip’s iron coating into molten solder.


Hibernation Mode

After a configurable period of tool inactivity in the stand (10 min factory default), the tool enters into Hibernation mode.
It cuts off the power supply making the tip reach room temperature thus preventing oxidation and saving energy.




Tip Life 5 Times Longer



Sleep & Hibernation

Factors limiting life of tips


Flux and solder alloy

Too much active Flux can cause corrosion. IPC recommends: ROL, REL and ORL.
The internal flux from small Ø solder reels might not be enough. Provide compatible external Flux if necessary.

Oxidization

Iron oxide does not wet nor transfer temperature well (dewetting). The higher the temperature, the greater the risk of oxidation. Keep tips always tinned while not in use. Use flux on your solder joints. Take advantage of SLEEP & HIBERNATION functions.

● Iron plating thickness

Plate wear shortens tip life (hollowed-out). Do not use mechanical of chemical means to clean the tip. Use the cleaning methods provided by the manufacturer. Do not apply too much pressure to the tip.


● Correct techniques

Too much pressure on the surface to solder can cause tip or plate breakage. Do not use as a pointed object or a screwdriver. Choose the biggest tip possible for each application and work at the lowest possible temperature.


● Working temperatures

The higher the temperature, the greater the oxidation and corrosion. Work with the lowest possible temperature. Use thermal efficient tools and keep tips clean of oxidation.

4. Increase your productivity

No tools needed to change the tip. Just place in holder, pull and insert the new tip. Reduces your idle time while increasing operator safety.


● Increase productivity by using the quick cartridge extractor, which is available in all Stands and Compact Stations.


● This system designed by JBC allows the user to change cartridges quickly and safely.


● Without switching the Station off, you can carry out different soldering jobs in just few seconds.


Save time by using the quick cartridge extractor in a fast and safe way.


5. Over 400 cartridge shapes


The essential part of the soldering iron is the tip. For this reason JBC offers a broad selection of cartridges of different sizes and shapes to choose from, according to each soldering or rework job.


JBC has developed the most advanced technology based on the following principles:


● Excellent Heat Transfer


● Instantaneous Heating-Up


● Great Durability
