Soldering Equipment in use

What is Soldering Equipment?

Soldering equipment comprises soldering irons and guns, as well as accessories such as soldering tips, solder wire and solder fluxing fluid.

Soldering irons and guns work by providing heat to solder wire which melts the wire to form connections between joints. They are designed to reach temperatures of 200-480°C in order to melt the solder wire. Soldering irons and guns are designed to be hand held and are heated either by battery or mains power.

What are the benefits of Soldering Equipment?

Soldering irons and guns are usually lightweight and easy to hold, making them ideal for undertaking precision work. Some have extra features such as LCD screens and an ability to switch between different temperatures, so they can be customised to suit your requirements. Most soldering irons come complete with a stand so they can be safely put aside while working. Some soldering irons feature an auto shut-off for extra convenience and safety.
