Soldering is a manufacturing process for joining metals or other thermoplastic materials such as plastics by heating, high temperature or high pressure.
1. Fusion soldering
Heating the workpiece to be joined to partially melt it to form a molten pool. The molten pool is cooled and solidified and then joined. If necessary, a filler can be added to assist. It is suitable for welding processing of various metals and alloys. pressure.
2. Pressure soldering
Apply pressure to the weldment, which suitable for the processing of various metal materials.
3. Brazing soldering
Use a metal material with a lower melting point than the base material as the brazing filler metal, wet the base metal with liquid brazing filler metal , fill the joint gap, and mutually diffuse with the base metal to realize the connection of the weldment. It is suitable for welding processing of various materials, and also suitable for welding processing of different metals or dissimilar materials.
A soldering work station is an electronics repair tool that allows the user to adhere computer chips, wires, resistors, and transistors together. They’re small enough to sit on a desktop and powerful enough to melt away thick layers of solder.
Types of soldering station
1. Constant temperature soldering station
The range of temperature controlled soldering station is usually 200℃～480℃, and the common models are 936, FX951, FX-888, 942, etc.
2. Hot air rework solder station
Compared with the constant temperature soldering station, it is equipped with a hot air gun to facilitate the desoldering process. The control temperature is about 200℃～480℃. The common models are 850, 850D, etc. The 850D has a temperature digital display meter.
3. High frequency lead-free soldering station
Generally use high-frequency eddy current heating and metal heating cores. This high-frequency soldering station is generally divided into two types: switching power supply and transformer. The heating and temperature recovery speed is fast, and lead-free welding is realized. The power is generally 90W, 100W, 120W, 150W, 180W, the common model is QUICK203H series, this is lead-free.
Functions of the soldering station
1. Anti-static: mainly to prevent the precision chip welding from being broken down by static electricity.
2. Dormant: save energy and extend the life of the soldering iron tip.
3. Digital display temperature: easy to adjust.
4. Password lock temperature: prevent workers from changing the temperature setting casually.
Soldering station components
——936 soldering station handle is composed of insulating material, heating core and soldering iron tip.
——Soldering iron tip is mainly composed of four metal materials: copper, iron, nickel, chromium, and tin as the thermal conductive parts of the soldering station.
——Soldering iron stand is used to temporarily hold the handle, and keep it away from flammable materials, the soldering iron rack usually has a fiber sponge to clean the soldering iron tip.
Rework stations and soldering stations are two tools in the same vein, but they have very different scopes of use. Rework stations work under different circumstances, providing a gentler approach, and being capable of working with almost any component. However, rework stations lack the same precision that makes a soldering station so useful. Which tool you should choose while need repair your equipment? Gordakelec solder rework station will give you solutions and suggestions.
