We are at the APEX EXPO and we ran in to our friends at HAKKO, they have a fantastic booth where you can solder up a cute robot badge right there.
Digital Genuine Hakko FX-888D (936 upgrade) – FX-888D. Known by engineers for making excellent quality tools & soldering irons! This is a genuine Hakko FX-888D with digital temperature control! This iron is an upgrade to the venerable Hakko 936 – smaller footprint but more powerful for a faster heat up time.
The Hakkos have quality construction, this iron is the last one you’ll need for decades. Heats up in 30 seconds, with a calibrated temperature control knob gives precision heat to minimize cold solder joints. Once you know you’re on the path of electronics, this is the iron you’ll want beside you on your desk.
The new Digital version has a display in either Fahrenheit or Centigrade (customer adjustable), so you can set the temperature as well as see the current tip temp.
Thousands of industry professionals from more than 50 countries attend this premier event— featuring advanced and emerging technologies in printed board design and manufacturing, electronics assembly, test and printed electronics!
