Master the skills to control the temperature of the soldering iron tip
① The temperature management of the soldering iron tip is very important. For electric soldering irons with temperature adjustment, it is very important to choose the most suitable soldering iron tip temperature setting according to the soldering tin used. Before working, it is important to measure the temperature of the soldering iron tip with a soldering iron tip thermometer. ② Use the authentic soldering iron tip and counterfeit soldering iron tip that is matched with the manufacturer (such as white light tool). The hole diameter (put into the heating core) is large or small, and the thickness of the sleeve is also different. These will cause the performance of the soldering iron to fail to play, and sometimes it will The cause of the malfunction of the soldering iron. ③ When using an electric soldering iron with good thermal properties such as heat recovery, when using lead-free solder for soldering operations, due to the heat resistance of the parts and the consideration of safe operation, [the set temperature of the soldering iron tip is generally hoped to be between 350 degrees and 370 degrees. the following. An electric soldering iron with good heat recovery, such as the white light HAKKO942, integrates the heating body/sensor/soldering iron tip, so that the heat recovery is very good. ④ It is necessary to choose the most suitable soldering iron tip. According to the different soldering operations of the electric soldering iron, it is important to choose the most suitable soldering iron tip. A suitable soldering iron tip can reduce the temperature of the soldering iron tip and increase the efficiency of the operation. ⑤ The maintenance of the soldering iron tip is also very important. Unlike ordinary sponges that contain water, a metal wire impregnated with additives is required, which not only does not reduce the temperature of the soldering iron tip, but also has a cleaning effect and can also remove oxides on the surface of the soldering iron tip. Set the temperature of the soldering iron tip as low as possible. When not in use for more than 10 minutes, the power supply of the soldering iron should be cut off. When the soldering iron tip becomes black due to oxidation, first remove the oxide with the solder of flux. If it cannot be removed, first use a wire cleaner impregnated with additives to remove the oxide on the surface, and then apply new solder. After all the operations are completed, new solder should be applied to the soldering iron tip and stored in the soldering station.
