Operating a Nitrogen Soldering Iron has many benefits over traditional Soldering Irons to improve productivity and extend the process window:
- The Nitrogen has a Pre-heating effect on components resulting in faster flow of solder.
- Soldering under Nitrogen prevents oxidisation
This aids the operation of the flux in cleaning the surfaces to be joined and opens/widens the process window and aids the flow of the solder thus offering a higher process yield, e.g. Reduced solder bridging, icicling and damage caused by excessive heat application.
- Allows higher output and productivity
Traditionally Nitrogen systems have been costly to run, however with the Hakko Nitrogen Generator (FX-780) and flow Meter (FX-791) Hakko have transformed the workspace without the need for large external storage tanks or connection to external sources.
