Operatives and engineers who want to ensure solder efficiency can now access a soldering tip selector just launched by Farnell. The easy-to-use selector helps customers choose the right tip for over 100 different soldering systems and stations, from 1,500 tips in stock all available from Farnell for next day delivery.

James McGregor, Global Head of Test and Tools at Farnell said: “It can be a challenging task to figure out which tip goes with which system. Farnell’s new soldering tip selector helps you choose the right and best tip for any iron to complete your perfect soldering system. We have made it very simple for our customers to find the tips they require from the very wide range we offer, reducing the time they need to spend searching for replacement parts and minimising the possibility of incorrect ordering.”

Farnell stocks a broad range of soldering solutions from leading manufactures such as Weller, Metcal and Pace, including:

  • Weller WT2M 2-channel soldering station: Packing 150W of power and maximum versatility, the WT2M 2-channel soldering station is the latest addition to Weller’s high-performance WT Line, offering a best-in-class portfolio, backwards compatibility with existing soldering tools and a comprehensive range of accessories.
  • Metcal CV-5210: Metcal soldering stations have led the way with SmartHeat technology for 35 years. The CV-5210 with SmartHeat senses the thermal load and instantly delivers Power on Demand directly to the joint. The embedded, self-regulating heater delivers the right amount of power based on the requirements of the solder joint. This provides a fast, safe and repeatable process with no calibration required. Backwards compatible with the MX series, the CVC-5210 features a 2.8” colour touchscreen with bold graphics, communications, Integrated Net Power Meter and power graph. It stores and records cartridge attributes, provides traceability information, and protects the power supply from non-conforming cartridges.
  • The Pace WJS 100 Series features all the advanced process control technology now expected from PACE but now with nearly twice the maximum power output to make easy work of the most challenging, high-thermal-mass or high-volume soldering applications. Featuring PACE’s Exclusive IntelliHeat Control Technology it is fully programmable with a digital processor, LED display and keypad. Having nearly twice the maximum power output increases productivity at safer, lower temperatures, even on the heaviest loads and offers lower cost of ownership.
