Hirox Digital Microscope on the BBC tonight at 8 PM on BBC1

Hirox featured on the BBC!Don't miss the new BBC "Miniature Britain" TV show featuring the Hirox 3D Digital Microscope and Hirox Europe specialist Emilien Leonhardt!

The show will air on BBC1 on Wednesday the 12th of December at 8PM London time."Biologist George McGavin goes on a journey around the British Isles to show us the extraordinary little things that are vital to our land. With a revolutionary new microscope camera with a zoom up to seven thousand times, George reveals the surprising beauty of Britain close-up. Caterpillars' feet have hooks that anchor them to leaves even upside down, the wings of butterflies and moths are a kaleidoscope of colourful scales that keep them safe from predators, bee stings have barbs that make them stick deep in your skin, and feathers have thousands of hooks that zip together keeping birds airborne.

Our cities are full of invisible miniature life too: millions of cute 'water bears' graze pavement mosses, and our homes have legions of dust mites scavenging for food in our carpets.

This is Britain as you've never seen it before."

Soldering temperatures

Which is the suggested soldering temperature in lead free processes? Our experience shows that 90% of solder joints using JBC tools can be performed successfully at 350ºC or less, in any case it is not recommended to exceed 370ºC.

Why is it possible to solder at lower using a JBC tool? It is possible because the tip has an extremely fast thermal response.

On a conventional iron’s tip there is a strong drop in temperature while the tip is transferring the heat to the board. If the thermal response is slow, the tip does not have the time to recover the temperature, especially if a series of solder joint is performed. This is the reason why the operator is used to select a higher temperature, resulting in short tip life and PCB / component damage.

Which are the advantages of soldering at lower temperature?

- The tips last much longer because of reduced oxidation. This improves the 'wettability' of the tip and therefore also the heat transfer efficiency.

- The flux does not burn directly on the tip, but is activated while soldering. In this way, the tip does not turn dark so quickly and its wettability is better.

- The risk of damaging components and pcb through excessive heat transfer is minimised.

- The process quality is optimized because there are less rework issues and scraps.

Which is the suggested sleep temperature? The factory setting of 220ºC is adecuate for most situations. At this temperature oxidation is lowered to a minimum and ramp up to work temperature, when the tool is taken out of it's stand, will be completed in about a second.

Which is the best system to clean the tips?

It depends on maintenance issues and on the technology of the soldering system. A wet sponge is an efficient system if it is kept clean and damp (not swamped), it is changed periodically and deionised water is used. The tip's temperature partially decreases during the contact with the wet sponge, but this could be a disadvantage only with older generations of soldering systems, where the iron does not have a very fast thermal response and it takes several seconds to recover the working temperature. The cleaning wire (brass) is an alternative to the sponge. It needs less maintenance and does not decrease the temperature of the tip, that's why some handsoldering producers with low thermal response prefer it. On the other hand, it releases some material residues which may fall on the PCBs if the holder is not protected. The stand of the brass should be heavy in order not to move during its use, otherwise the operator will need also the other hand to hold it. The metal brush is a more aggressive way to clean the tip, but if used gently cleans well the tip with minimal damage. The tip tinner / cleaner is a chemical method to clean and retin the tip at the same time. It should be used when above methods fail and a very active cleaning method is needed. There is also a new sand cleaning method from JBC: the tip must be entered inside a protected sand deposit and turned it around. This method is advisable when all else fails.

How do I clean and care for my desoldering tools?

Desoldering is a dirty business. When using our DR desoldering tool, it is recommended that you have a spare "tube", clean and set to go during the day. Simply unscrew the green end piece of the gun, remove it from the handle, take the tube off and put it on your bench and replace with the new one. This will allow you to continue working and reduce the downtime of your equipment. Put aside 5-10 minutes at the end of a shift to use the provided reaming rod to push out the baffle and the filter in the glass or stainless tubes. Take a small wire brush and gently rub the baffle with it into a trash receptacle or hazardous waste container(if using leaded solder). Replace baffle to line marked on end of tube and put in a new white filter. Please periodically check the the secondary filter on the front or back (depending on model) of the the desoldering pump for discolouration. Replace if it looks fairly dirty. It is a good idea to also use the provided drill bit like tools to ream out the desoldering nozzles that you use in order to prevent buildup and clogging. The amount of usage your desoldering tool gets will determine the frequency for all maintenance. Please see manual for additional recommendations.

Fume Extraction Systems | Choosing the right system

Choosing the right Fume Extraction System may seem a daunting task as we all know there are health implications at risk, but in actual fact knowing some key features of the Kaisertech Fume Extraction range we have made this very simple for you. Below we will explain exactly how the systems work as well as advising the application each of the systems are designed to cater for.

Analogue or Digital Fume Extraction System?

It really depends on the application the fumes are being removed from or the number of people who are affected which will determine what type system you go for. The Purex ranges of Analogue Fume Extraction Systems are budget versions of the Digital Systems but with many excellent features and in principle work in exactly the same way.

Essentially, both Fume Extraction Systems have automatic closed loop flow control which ensures that the extraction rate remains constant. It does this by slowly increasing the speed of the blower as the filter begins to block, this overcomes the resistance to airflow through the filter and keeps the extraction rate constant.

When the particle filter is nearly blocked on the Analogue System the LED will turn yellow. This feature allows the operator time to acquire a replacement particle filter before the current one becomes completely blocked. When the particle filter is completely blocked then the LED will turn red and an alarm will sound.

With the Digital System when the particle filter is nearly blocked the fume extraction systems will warn the operator with an audible chime and the keypad will flash red. This feature allows the operator time to acquire a replacement particle filter before the current one becomes completely blocked. When the particle filter is completely blocked then the fume extraction system will chime and the keypad will flash every second. At this point the particle filter icon will flash to show which filters may need attention. Plus as an added measure of the Digital Fume Extractors include Gas and Particle Sensors to offer the user an additional level of Safety.

Both Fume Extraction Systems can be interfaced with other equipment such as a laser or wave soldering machine to stop the process, set off an alarm or perform another function such as turning on a beacon. Alarm signals can include:

-Filter blocked -Gas alarm -Particle alarm

The fume extractors can also STOP/START automatically with interfaced machines. Note; None of the above are available on FumeBuster products

Purex Analogue Fume Extraction Systems include:

Purex Fume Cube (single or twin arm)

FumeCube Single Arm

These are Arm Fume Extraction Systems for either 1 or 2 users. Filters are available for solder or chemical fume. Supplied with one 38mm stainless steel arm with pen nib nozzle which can be simply attached to the workbench by using a versatile clamp bracket. If the work area moves, the Fume-Cube can be relocated in minutes.

LEV Testing – What is it? Is it the Law?

Health and safety law says you must assess the risks to your workers from hazardous substances – dusts, fumes, vapours, etc. - and decide what measures to use to protect their health.

If the measures you adopt include extraction systems (LEV) to remove the dusts, fumes, vapours etc. produced by your work processes or activities, then you must maintain the LEV in efficient working order so it continues to provide the necessary protection. You should also have a periodic thorough examination and test (at least every 14 months) and must keep this record for at least 5 years. In addition, you should have information on the installed LEV system to confirm it provides adequate protection, which should be kept for the life of the equipment.
