Inspection 3. Checking the tip temperature

If the tip, element cover, etc. are oxidized, heat conduction will be deteriorated, causing the tip temperature to become lower, resulting in soldering failure. To prevent soldering failure, measure the tip temperature daily. * The tip temperature can be measured by not only HAKKO FG-101 but also by HAKKO FG-100.

The indicated tip temperature may be lower than the actual temperature due to other factors. To measure the temperature correctly, see as follows.
