New models of JBC cartridges, more soldering solutions.

The wide range of JBC cartridges has been extended with four new models. Three of them specially designed for soldering cables and connections.


 This is the bent version of the cartridge C245-061, which has a screwdriver shape.
Its geometry allows to reach components that the straight version can not.








C245-762 This is perfect to solder cables or cylindrical pieces up to Ø9mm.







C245-763 This is specially designed for soldering cables and connections up to Ø 2.5 mm. 
This model, similar to the current C245-760, joins to the special section of the C245 range.








It is perfect to solder cables of Ø1mm maximum.
It is also suitable to solder rows of pins of Ø1mm maximum up to a total length of 10mm (which is the width of the tip).








JBC NANT: The succesful Nano Station, now with two Soldering Irons

Following the success of the Nano Rework station, JBC has responded to requests from its customers with the launch of the NANT Nano Soldering station.

The Highest Precision in Soldering!

The NANT Nano Soldering station incorporates the same control unit than the NAST station but it comes with two nano soldering irons instead of tweezers. It is specially indicated for high precision jobs requiring more than one nano soldering iron working simultaneously.

The nano soldering irons are the best solution for very small-sized SMD components such as 0201 chips including those that require the use of a microscope.

 JBC's Nano tools are extremely light, comfortable and stand out for their shortest tip-to-grip distance. Despite its small size, they are able to provide up to 15W of power by using C105 cartridges.


The NANT Nano Soldering station also incorporates the latest developments of the NAST, since their control unit is the same. Click Here to see the easier tool placement or the new cleaning & extraction set.

What’s the most recommended type of wool for cleaning soldering Tips?

Brass wool: Although less aggressive than the Inox Wool, it is easily subject to breaking down. This can cause metal particles and fibers to contaminate the enviroment of the working area. We have a very large and experienced customer that refuse the use of Brass Wool technique for this reason. Brass wool was first used in the industry many years ago and, as sometimes happens, it became an industry standard and adopted by many vendors.

Inox Wool: It is more agressive than the Brass wool and may require more restraint from the operator when using. This method proves to be the most effective when the user applies less aggressiveness and minimizes the abrasions – Less Is Better. Apart from being more effective with controlled use, Inox is much more durable than Brass. It is more flexible, less fragile, and as a result, reduces broken particles and contamination. In our testing we found it very resistant to breakage and less than 10X broken particles were found than with Brass wool.

Increase Productivity with JBC Soldering Tools

Save time by using the quick cartridge extractor, which is available in all stands and compact stations. This system designed by JBC allows the user to change cartridges quickly and safely. Without switching the station off, you can carry out different soldering jobs.

Just three easy steps:

1)Remove the cartridge from the hand-piece. Place the tool and pull up slightly to release it.

2)Insert the cartridge to use into the hand-piece. Push slightly.

3)Select the hole depending on the tip shape. Place the cartridge to the suitable hole and push again.

New to JBC Soldering Tools 2013!

We would like to highlight the following news with the Advanced Series:


-Compact Line: The new "C" version incorporates a USB to upgrade software, generate graphs and monitor parameters from a PC.

-NAST-B: The "B" version of the Nano station has a dual integrated system consisting of a tip cleaning stand and a cartridge extractor/inserter.

-Hot Air Stations: The new "B" version features a USB connection and, in the case of TE-B and TE-QB, a new TE-TB heater and its corresponding stand have been incorporated. In addition, the extractor desk composition has been adapted to new technological demands.

-DDR and HDR: Robot versions for the current DD and HD. Using RS-232 output, the robot manages and monitors the soldering station.


-“D” version: JBC stands have been restyled. See the new adjustable cap for Sleep and Hibernation modes and the curved cable collector which allows easier use of the cartridge extractor.


-T210-PA and T245-PA Handpieces: The blue grips allow the user to visually distinguish the soldering irons for lead jobs (blue) from the unleaded ones (green).

-AL250-B Soldering Iron: The new screw allows the user to adjust for easier alignment of the cartridge.


-Included in the Advanced price list is the SL2020 temp-controlled soldering iron, the SG1070 gas soldering iron and the range of tweezers and pliers that are a perfect complement to all soldering jobs.

Do not hesitate to contact us should you need further information.

Happy New Year for 2013!

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.
