If you’ve ever made a mistake when surface-mount soldering, you’ll know how much of a pain it can be to fix it without the right tools. It can add critical time to a project and can seriously stymie your soldering momentum if you run into a bad component or a faulty reflow. With the Quick 861DW Soldering Station, you can easily rework your boards and get your project back on track. It’s also possible to use solder paste (in a syringe for example) to apply paste and then blow hot air over it to melt the solder and get the components into place.
This powerful station has an internal pump and heater to blow a steady stream of temperature controlled hot air to make it super easy to remove components, fix joints and jumpers, replace missing components, or just correct something you’ve done wrong.
The Quick 861DW matches up performance with hot air stations that cost twice as much! It’s great for beginners to experts thanks to its super-fast heat up time and easy to use button interface. You can save and restore ‘profiles’ so you have one for lead-free, lead, small chips or large. Comes with a nice stand and three different nozzles for different sized parts.
It has a closed-loop temperature control range between 100-500°C (212-932°F) and a digital display so you can easily tell what temperature the air’s blowing at. It has a power consumption of 1000W and an intelligent cooling system, so the airflow remains on until it gets to below 100°C. Max air flow is 100 L/minute – but for most work you’ll want to keep it a lot lower than that.
Just make sure to let the rework station heat up all the way before using it and be careful to use tools (and not your hands!) when using as it spits out, well, really hot air. Comes with three nozzles, use the smallest size you can get away with – it helps avoid damaging other components if you are trying to isolate one part of the board while avoiding a connector, for example.
