My PA120/AM120 tweezers are not heating up, what should I do?

The AM120 & PA120 tweezers require each of the cartridges to be properly aligned and tightened. A small flat head screw locks in each cartridge (located on the body of the tweezer handpiece). If this is not properly tightened, the station will view it as an open circuit and subsequently provide no heat.

How can I extend the life of my JBC soldering cartridges?
To extend the life of your soldering cartridges there are several factors that must be taken into account. We recommend to not exceed a temperature of 370ºC. Our extensive research into JBC soldering tools show that 90% of solder joints perform optimally at 350ºC. Ensure that the force you apply to the soldering iron does not exceed its own weight.
Are there any simple tips for the desoldering process?
Our experts have put together some of the most helpful tips for desoldering. Click here and follow the instructions for a smooth desoldering experience!
Only one cartridge on my tweezers has worn out, and the other tip works. Can I purchase these cartridges separately?

Yes, although two cartridges are needed for the tweezer handpieces to work, they can be purchased individually. You can find the tip that you require on our Replacement Soldering Tips page.

Static Control

Do I need a benchtop or overhead Ioniser for my workplace?
Depending on the size of your workstation, the ioniser that you decide to purchase will be different. Both units will operate the same, neutralising static charge through the production of a balanced source of both positive and negatively charged ions. Their most appropriate customer will vary however.
Do heel grounders need to be worn on both feet?

Yes they do. In order to keep for the product to effectively ground the electrostatic discharge, both feet need suitable ESD protection. This is in accordance with IEWC 61340-5-1. You can browse our range of ESD Heel Straps or ESD footwear here.

What is an electrostatic protected area (EPA)?
In short, an electrostatic protected area is a space where all surfaces, objects, people, and devices are kept at the same electrical potential.

ESD Furniture

How do ESD benches work?

ESD benches are a vital tool in ensuring your business maintains an effective EPA. Non insulating materials such as wood will not be effective in an electronic environment that needs to be ESD protected.

ESD benches are made with static dissipative materials that differentiate it from your standard wooden workbench. This material will ground the bench to the earth helping to dissipate any build up of static electricity that is generated by the operator. Your standard benches do not give the static anywhere to go, creating possible damage for sensitive components or even the user.

Are ESD chair castors suitable for hard floors?

We can provide special soft tyre castors that are better suited for use on hard floors. They look very similar to the standard castors and can be available upon request.

If this is something that you require for the ESD chairs in your environment, contact our team today. We can build these castors into your quote, whilst providing reassurance for the ESD chairs’ suitability and flexibility for all assembly line and factory settings.

Do I need an ESD bench for my workspace?

An ESD bench will be ideal in areas containing devices that are sensitive to ESD. This is frequently the case in electronic assembly lines and other processes involving electrical components. ESD can damage devices beyond repair, so it is important that you have the correct equipment to minimise this risk. An ESD workbench is one of the best ways to ensure that the operator remains grounded, and thus eliminating the ESD.

What types of ESD workbenches are there to choose from?

There are four main types of ESD workbench that you can purchase from us. These are the Classic ESD Workbench, Cantilever Bench, Upright Frame, Corner ESD Table or a Packing Table. To learn more about these visit our dedicated ESD workbench page here.

Electric Torque Screwdrivers

What voltage should be used for ASA screwdrivers?

You should always ensure that you use the correct voltage that is advised for your particular tool. This can be found by carefully checking the voltage that can be seen on the power supply or by checking the manual to find the correct voltage. Only ever plug your tool into a power source that has the correct voltage.

What should I do if my screwdriver power cord gets damaged?

Should you notice that your screwdriver has become damaged, it is highly advised that you stop using the tool with immediate effect. You should ensure that it is both unplugged and replaced as broken screwdrivers can cause electric shocks, or even short circuit, creating a potential fire hazard.

What considerations should I make when bringing an electric screwdriver into a working environment?

There are several precautions that you should take in order to ensure the safe use of an electric screwdriver. These are as follows:

  • Do not use the tool in high temperatures.
  • Refrain from use in high humidity environments.
  • Avoid using near flammable materials.
  • Keep the power cord away from tools and equipment that could scrape or melt your screwdriver.
What is the difference between pneumatic and electric torque screwdrivers?

There are two primary differences between both of the types of screwdriver.

Pneumatic Driver – These are powered by compressed air. Compressed CO2 will drive a pneumatic motor inside the driver. A gear reduction system is also built in to allow the user to select their desired torque range.

Electric Driver – The ideal tool for high volume assembly line work. These are designed to shut off once the pre-set torque has been achieved. With an electric screwdriver you can ensure the consistent quality of your production line.

How do ultrasonic cleaners work?

Ultrasonic cleaning systems rely upon sound waves to generate bubbles that implode upon impact with the items that are inside the tank. This implosion creates energy that performs a scrubbing like action onto the surface of the component that is submerged. Millions of these bubbles will be generated giving you a clean that is not only extensive, but also highly delicate. For a more in depth explanation, read our blog here!

How often should I change the cleaning fluid in an ultrasonic cleaning bath?

There is no set time for how many washes should pass before the fluid in your cleaner is changed. However, it will become quickly apparent, as you will visibly be able to see the fluid become too contaminated. There are two warning signs you should look out for, these include:

  • When the cleaning process begins to show signs of becoming less effective.
  • The water becomes contaminated so that you can no longer see the bottom of the tank.
Why use a Dr Storage Dry Cabinet over Moisture Barrier Bags?

There are three main reasons why you should opt for a dry cabinet from Dr Storage, over any kind of moisture barrier bag. These are:

Cost Effective – With a dry cabinet you only need to make one purchase. You can cut out the running costs for purchases of the moisture barrier bags and desiccant.

Tightly Secured – Unlike moisture barrier bags, there are no risks of punctures. The cabinets are tightly sealed and calibrated to determine the correct amount of desiccant.

Reduced Labour – The task of placing individual items into the moisture barrier bags will no longer be needed. Simply place the items on the trays and reels, before securing them inside the cabinet.

How long do the filters last in the AirBench Downdraught benches?

For general use in most applications the filters should last between 6 -12 months. If the bench is being used heavy duty for long periods of time the filters may need to be changed more frequently. It must also be noted that if you are using disposable media pads, ensure you change this monthly.

If you are undertaking higher volumes of work you should consider the AirBench RP with self cleaning filters.

For any more information on the right downdraught bench for your required application, do not hesitate to get in touch with us today.
