Soldering Iron


With hot iron soldering the required heat is generated by an electronic heating element in a metallic shaft of the soldering iron. The shaft is a heat accumulator and it conducts the heat to the solder tip, which is heating up the soldering joint. Because of its high heat capacity copper is often used as a basis material for shaft and solder tip. The solder tip is covered with nickel and iron in order to avoid chemical wear. A special kind of solder irons are heating stamps, which are fitted with its contour to the soldering joint.

Range of Applications

Hot iron soldering can be used for a wide range of applications.
