The Ideal Tip
Based on an original publication by Hakko
When choosing a tip, understanding its capabilities will be crucial to the quality of your soldering. Each tip has a specific purpose and has been formed for particular types of tasks. Temperature, tip size and tip shape must all work together to produce first-rate soldering for each application. When choosing your tip, you’ll also need to consider the various conditions of the part to be soldered.
You can look at tip shapes as a whole, that is, bevel, chisel, conical, knife, pyramid, quad, round, etc., however companies like Hakko consider the very detailed aspects of certain applications when manufacturing tips. A basic tip shape will be machined and hewn into hundreds of shapes and sizes to fit all kinds of precision work.
