JBC Tools innovative technology that takes your work beyond the station!

JBC has developed the most innovative technology to take your work beyond the station.

The incorporation of USB connection and the introduction of control units for robot allows you to manage your work remotely from a PC.

USB Connections

The main functions of USB connector (type B):

-Update station software

-Create Graphs of the soldering process

-Manage and monitor parameters via PC (comming soon)

It is required to download and install these

functions from the JBC website: www.jbctools.com/downloads.html

USB Network

Via a HUB connector the user can connect as many stations as the PC supports and obtain graphics from each.

Control Units for Robots

The DDR and HDR suit perfectly to any robotic production system:

Tools go connected via a converter wich guarantees the performance of Sleep and Hibernation features

They feature a USB connector and a RS-232 output with protocol for robots and PCs communication.

These control units work simultaneously with one or two tools that are compatible to hundreds of JBC cartridges.

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.

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.
