ESD Matting – Want to know more?

ESD Mats are primarily used to prevent electronic circuit boards and other electronic products from damage by an electrostatic charge. Static control is critical during electronic assembly and manufacturing. Kaisertech specialise in ESD Work Surface Mats, ESD Table Top Mats, ESD Floor Mats, ESD Anti Fatigue Floor Mats, ESD Runners, ESD Foam Mats and all the ESD accessories you would need to set up your assembly line. Kaisertech also offer custom ESD Mat cutting and studding to your particular size requirements.

Please feel free to contact us if you are unable to find the ESD products or supplies you need on our Static Control section of our website.

Prolonging JBC Soldering Tip Life

Are you finding your Tips are not lasting as long as you think they should - heres some tips to help you out!

-Our experience shows that 90% of solder joints using JBC tools can be performed successfully at 350ºC (660ºF), in any case it is not recommended to exceed 370ºC (700ºF).

-The force applied on a soldering iron should not be more that it’s own weight.

-To prevent the tip from oxidizing and corroding fresh solder should be added before putting the iron back in its stand.

-Adapt the tip size correctly to the solder joint.

-Do not apply abrasive surfaces to clean the plated area.

-Use a mild flux.

-Keep sponges clean and damp, not swamped.

-Only use original JBC sponges; other sponges may contain substances that reduce tip life.

-Use distilled/de-ionized water and avoid tap water; tap water contains substances that reduce tip life.

-Only use tip re-tinner when absolutely necessary; when the tip is oxidized and cannot be cleaned using the sponge or other non agressive cleaning methods.

Fume Extraction Systems – How much do you know?

It's important to start off with that local and international health and safety legislation (such as COSHH, NIOSHH, OSHA etc) states that it is the employers responsibility to protect the health, welfare and safety of their employees. Failure to do so can result in expensive legal action, potential fines and poor employee relations.

Fume Extraction - Whats The need?

Many types of dust and fume are hazardous to health if inhaled. People can become permanently sensitised to fumes which means that continued exposure, even to very small amounts of fume, may cause asthma attacks or other respiratory diseases.

A high performance fume extraction system will help to:-

-Protect employee health.

-Ensure compliance with Health & Safety regulations such as OSHA, NIOSH C.O.S.H.H, MAK, AFNOR, or equivalent.

-Increase production speeds.

-Reduce complaints by operators due to odours, dust and vapours.

-Avoid possible cost of health compensation claims.

Which Fume Extraction System?

These are usually two types of extraction system available:-

-External - pump contaminated air into the environment outside the building.

-Internal - at source capture and filtration or LEV (local exhaust ventillation) system.

In our opinion the best system to use is an LEV system such as a Purex. These capture fumes at the source thereby preventing fumes escaping into the workplace. They also filter hazardous particles and gasses which would otherwise be pumped into the outside environment causing pollution.

Using an internal filter system also avoids issues with environmental regulations and potential complaints from neighbouring businesses about fumes and odours.

Thinking of buying a soldering iron? Lets take a look at JBC Soldering Tools!

JBC Exclusive Heating System. The system recovers the tip’s temperature extremely fast. This increases the work efficiency and enables to low the solder temperature.

JBC heating system principles.- The compact element optimises heating transfer by reducing the thermal barriers.

- The fully integrated thermal sensor to the heater ensures the extremely quick temperature recovery.

- The intelligent algorithm used in the heating control system increase the performance.

JBC, the most efficient soldering process. -This innovative technology allow to reduce the temperature, at least 50ºC.

-Reducing the temperature, reduce the risk of damaging components and improves the quality of any soldering or desoldering job.
