Brand New JBC Soldering Station with Improved Tools

With more than 80 years experience, JBC has established themselves as a leading manufacturer of soldering stations and tools, which incorporate the very latest cutting edge technology.

The brand new CA compact soldering station is no exception. It is ideal for repetitive soldering jobs where the user requires a free hand. It works together with the ergonomic AP250 solder feed iron, which is well-suited for prolonged soldering work by offering unrivalled comfort for workers to improve productivity.

A technologically advanced soldering station

The JBC CA is a self-contained soldering station featuring sleep and hibernation modes, whereby solder tips adopt lower temperatures once they have been set to rest on the stand. This innovative technology has been proved to prolong solder tip life by up to 5 times longer, when compared to other manufacturers’ products.

This JBC soldering station also incorporates a complete cleaning system with an anti-splash membrane, helping you to keep the work area clean and free of foreign object debris (FOD).


If you’re unsure which JBC soldering products would be most appropriate for your requirements, speak to one of our soldering experts! Call us on +44 (0)23 8065 0065.

Introducing JBC’s new dip soldering system: wires and component tinning faster than ever before

Leading soldering and rework tool manufacturer JBC are renowned for their technological innovation and expertise. The launch of a new dip soldering system (CT-SA) aims to simplify the manual soldering process and serves as a further indication of JBC’s continual commitment to meeting customer demands.

JBC’s new dip solder pot system allows workers to tin wires and components faster and safer than ever before.

JBC Solder Pot Cartridges

JBC solder pot cartridges

Moreover, JBC has expanded its already extensive range of soldering cartridges with the addition of C245-SP01 and C470-SP01 soldering tips. The titanium pot is designed to resist the corrosiveness of lead-free solder alloys, ensuring a long product life.

When used together with the solder pot stand, JBC’s solder pot cartridges enable users to dip into molten solder to tin wires, a process that requires precise control of soldering temperature. These solder cartridges are also capable of desoldering through hole multipin components.

JBC CT-SA Solder Pot Cartridge Stand

The recently launched CT-SA solder pot cartridge stand (shown above) secures the solder pot from tipping over, avoiding any dangerous accidents.

This JBC soldering stand features a protective screen safeguarding users against potential burns from the solder pot. The stand also features a knob for quick and safe changing of the handle.

ESD Static Control – Huge Range of Products Available at Kaisertech

Ensure you take the necessary precautions to safeguard against electrostatic discharge (ESD) in the production area. Any electrical charges should be dissipated away from workers using electrical equipment, with a path-to-ground established that allows for static to be controlled in the production area.

Despite how technologically advanced modern-day electrical components are, they can still be severely damaged by a single electrical shock. For this reason it’s paramount to use ESD-safe tools and production equipment to reduce the possibility of costly damage inflicted on electrical components.

What is electrostatic discharge (ESD)?

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is the rapid movement of electric charge from one object to another in a non-conductive working environment. While many static shocks may be painless to humans, the same level of static can inflict far greater damage to electronic components. Indeed, it can take as little as 25 electrostatic volts to damage an integrated circuit beyond repair, which can be created simply from the friction that exists between hairs, skin and clothes.

ESD sensitive production areas should continually provide a buried shielding layer and a sealed surface in order to establish a controlled path-to-ground. The safest solution is to establish a static-free working environment.

How to create an anti-static production environment

ESD-safe tools and production equipment have been designed to ground workers and reduce the level of static in a production area - with built up electrical charge being dissipated away from the worker.

When it comes to static control, it’s always better to be safe than be sorry - particularly as a lack of safeguards can result in costly and even irreparable damage that exceeds the cost of controlling for static.

Our range of ESD static control products

Kaisertech stocks a huge range of ESD static control, static handling and anti-static packaging products to provide your business with a complete solution to mitigate against the harmful effects of electrostatic discharge (ESD).

At Kaisertech you should be able to find all the static control products you’re searching for. If you’re unable to find a particular product or wish to discuss your requirements with one of our static control specialists, feel free to give us a call on +44 (0)23 8065 0065.
