how to maintain the soldering tip
- May 30, 2018 -


Tip maintenance method 1. Choosing the right solder wire should use the proper tin wire and often protect the soldering iron tip with tin. In addition, the thicker tin wire should be used as far as possible for welding work, because the thicker tin wire has better protection for the iron head. 2. Keep the tip clean. Use a special wet sponge to remove flux, old tin, and oxide from the tip. After each use, the oxide on the soldering iron must be cleaned and new tin be added to the tin plating on the tip. 3. Applying tin to the surface of the iron tip often reduces the oxidation chance of the tip and makes the tip more durable. After use, it should be coated with a new tin layer after the humidity of the soldering iron is slightly reduced, and the right-to-use tin plating layer will achieve better anti-oxidation effect.
is slightly reduced, and the right-to-use tin plating layer will achieve better anti-oxidation effect.
4. When the iron is placed on the iron stand without the use of a soldering iron, the iron should be carefully placed on a suitable soldering iron holder so that the soldering iron is not damaged by the impact. 5. Instant cleaning of oxides When the tin plating layer contains black oxide or rust, there is a possibility that the tin cannot be soldered and the soldering work cannot be performed. If the tin plating layer is found to have black oxide and cannot be tinned, it must be cleaned immediately. 6. Choosing the right tip to choose the right tip size and shape is very
important. Choosing the right tip can make the job more efficient and increase the durability of the tip. Choosing the wrong tip will not affect the soldering iron to its maximum efficiency, and the quality of the solder will be reduced. The size of the iron head is directly related to the heat capacity. The larger the iron head is, the larger the heat capacity is, and the smaller the iron head is, the smaller the heat capacity is. For continuous soldering, the larger tip is used to reduce the temperature drop. In addition, because of the high heat capacity of the large iron tip, the solder tip can be easily oxidized and its lifetime can be increased by using a relatively low temperature. The short and thick iron tip is a fast, long-running iron tip that is more durable. A flat, blunt iron tip can transfer more heat than a sharp tip. In general, the size of the tip is a standard that does not affect adjacent components. Selecting a geometry that can fully contact the solder joint improves soldering efficiency.
