Surface mount soldering is a fairly simple task, which only requires solder, a stencil, a few tools for handling components and a hot air rework system. While it may be tedious, it is one of the simpler aspects of electronics repair and assembly. Nevertheless, high-quality tools must be used in surface mount soldering. The incorrect solder, cumbersome tweezers or an inconsistent rework system will only decrease productivity and increase aggravation. When businesses come to Kimco Distributors in need of a reliable hot air rework system, we often suggest the Hakko FR801 Hot Air Rework Station.
This Hakko hot air rework station from Kimco Distributors takes only a moment to heat up and provides a consistently hot airflow. The temperature of the hot air stream is easy to adjust, but it will not vary unless altered by a user. If a technician ever is unsure of the current settings, the variable airflow meter is easy to read with just a glance. The unit also comes with an automatic cool-down, which engages as soon as someone presses stop. Its compact design makes this unit easy to include on a workbench without cluttering a technician’s space.
Many of Kimco Distributors’ customers have been very pleased with the consistent performance of their Hakko FR801 Hot Air Rework Stations. Some have even purchased multiple units, either after trying out one initially or as their business grew. Currently, Kimco Distributors is offering a free hot air rework station to clients who purchase five units. This is a simple way of saying thank you to our most loyal customers in the surface mount soldering industry.
