Tip cleaner having both wire-type and sponge-type advantages
Prevents solder from splashing when cleaning.
Inserting just the tip into the receptacle completely prevents solder from splashing.
Two-types of brushes control how much solder is removed.
Solder removal status can be adjusted by plastic brushes and metallic brushes.
With wire-type cleaners, excessive amounts of solder remain on the tip, which causes solder to splash when soldering.
With sponge-type cleaners, oxidation is promoted, which causes shorter tip life.
A tip cleaner with both wire-type and sponge-type advantages eliminates the above problems when soldering.
Comparison of how much solder is removed by the different cleaning methods
Minimizes decrease in temperature of the tip while cleaning.
Inserting the tip turns the brush automatically; no need to switch it on and off.
Reduces the tip cleaning time between soldering works to increase work efficiency.
The electric rotary cleaner provides a uniform final cleaning status with no differences between individuals.
Comparison of decrease in tip temperature by cleaning method
If decrease in temperature is small, the time for a single cleaning also becomes short. Because cleaning is performed many times per day, the overall working time can be also shortened.
Time for single cleaning (The time for a single cleaning is measured as the time until the tip temperature reaches the set temperature after cleaning.)
Approx. 2.3 sec. (reference value)
Wire-type HAKKO 599B
Approx. 2.9 sec. (reference value)
Approx. 6.0 sec. (reference value)
The low-noise design relieves stress due to noise during work.
This cleaner is very quiet in comparison with competitor's electric tip cleaner.
Easy to maintain
Brushes can be replaced without removing any screws.
Solder left inside is stored in "Solder waste collector".
Solder does not splash all over the inside of the main body.
Safe design prevents brushes from turning unexpectedly during replacement.
The brush cannot be replaced unless the AC adapter is unplugged.
This tip cleaner can be attached to HAKKO iron holders FH-101, FH-200 and FH-201.
The FT-710 itself cannot be used as an iron holder. Be sure to use it together with an iron holder.
This tip cleaner can be attached to any of above 3 iron holders (FH-101, FH-200, FH-201) using just 2 screws.
For other iron holders, this tip cleaner can be placed next to the iron holder.
