The use and maintenance of soldering iron head of automatic soldering machine
Apr 17, 2018

1.Select the proper temperature. Excessive temperature will weaken the function of the iron head and oxidation, which can  shorten the service life. When it is possible to work, try to use a lower temperature, lower temperatures can also be fully soldered, and temperature-sensitive components can be protected. Generally we recommend that temperature is 350-380 degrees. Below 1.5mm small solder is 350-360 degrees and above 2.5mm large solder is 370-380 degrees.

2.When using the iron head for the first time, be sure to first adjust the temperature of the iron head to 220 degrees so that the upper tin part of the iron head can fully eat tin. It is best to soak in the tin for 5 minutes, then wipe it clean on the cleaning sponge.  The temperature of the soldering iron is adjusted to 300 degrees again, the above procedure is repeated, and finally the temperature of the soldering iron is adjusted to the desired use temperature. The purpose is to form a complete protective film on the tin layer of the soldering iron to prevent it from being oxidized at high temperatures, resulting in failure of heat transfer.


3. If the tinned part of the soldering tip contains black oxide, a new tin layer can be plated and the iron tip can be wiped off with a moist cleaning sponge. Repeat this cleaning until the oxide is completely removed, then apply a new tin layer. And regularly clean the iron head.


4. If not in use, turn off the power, wipe the iron tip on the cleaning sponge, and then apply a new layer of tin. Before using it again, wipe the iron tip on the cleaning sponge, and then apply a new layer of tin.


5. If the tip is deformed or heavily eroded, it should be replaced.
