Soldering stations and desoldering stations

Weidinger is your professional contact when it comes to soldering stations. Our range is of the highest quality and serves both simple and highly complex applications.
Soldering stations are basically used in electronics manufacturing and include a soldering iron, a tool stand and a control unit. With the help of the soldering iron and the melted solder, conductive connections between two metals are created. The precise adjustment options of our soldering stations enable exact results.

Soldering stations are indispensable for professional soldering of electronic components. Soldering with a classic soldering iron is not sufficient in many cases. That's why professionals turn to high-quality soldering stations, with which very precise connections can be achieved.


2 types of soldering stations:
There are basically two types of soldering stations - digital and analog. These stations are also called contact soldering stations. The soldering iron is connected to a power supply unit, the heated soldering tip melts the solder and creates the solder joint in direct contact. In addition to contact soldering stations, there are stations with hot air technology. Here, the soldering process is initiated by means of hot air generated by a generator.


Advantages of a soldering station:
Small components such as microchips, semiconductors and transistors are very sensitive to excessive temperatures and can be easily damaged. It must therefore be possible to adjust the temperature at the soldering tip precisely in order to prevent damage. Such temperature control is only possible with a soldering station. The temperature of a classic soldering iron is derived from its rated power. For example, an iron with a nominal power of 16 watts reaches a soldering temperature of 350 °C. This can be neither increased nor decreased. This can be neither increased nor decreased.


Analog, but above all digital stations allow the temperature to be set precisely. With a digital station, the temperature can be read on the display, and you can also save several temperature settings. This means that you do not have to set the temperature again each time for recurring soldering tasks, but can fall back on the stored data. With an analog soldering station, the temperature can be set using a rotary control. However, the selected temperature can only be estimated and not precisely regulated as with a digital station.


Hot air stations are mainly used for desoldering SMD components. Since the hot air stream can simultaneously cover several solder joints, the components can be completely removed from the board in a short time. In contrast to contact soldering, hot air soldering uses nozzles in the handpiece. The air temperature and air volume are set on the supply unit. This technique is only suitable for digital soldering to a very limited extent.
