Uses of Different Soldering Iron Tips

Posted by on 4/7/2016 to General

If you take a minute to browse through The WaveRoom Plusí website, you might feel overwhelmed when viewing our soldering iron tips as a beginner. There are so many items to choose from and making the wrong decision can negatively impact the quality of your soldered joints. Though there are so many specific styles of soldering iron tips, there are three differences in tips you should remember when purchasing for your project.

Larger tips absorb and hold heat better than small mechanisms, resulting in a more consistent temperature when working on larger joints and surfaces. Though these are great when they can be used for easier and bigger applications, it is impossible to use these tips in smaller, more intricate joints and settings. These are often referred to a chisel tip, and can be used for desoldering if needed.

Hoof tips are cone-shaped and are commonly used to transfer larges amount of heat used like chisel tips, but is also able to be used a more fine-point tip to use in smaller places. These tips can come in a variety of sizes, aiding in both broad and particular aspects of a soldering project.

Even more precise than hoof tips are conical tips, which are pointed and small. These tip is used to provide heat to very particular areas of your project.

No matter the quality of your soldering iron, your project will only be as great as the soldering tips you use and if they are used correctly. Determining your project type can be difficult for a novice, but learning about your options is well worth the wait.
