Computer electronics technicians now get more flexibility and infrared precision with The Tornado Infrared Soldering Station from

Repairing computer electronics just became easier with the new infrared tool the ‘Tornado Infrared Soldering Station’ from The computer hardware/metal parts supplier recently released the first hand held infrared work station, giving computer technicians a faster and easier way to repair PCB and solder wire.

Unlike hot air and traditional soldering stations, the Tornado utilizes infrared rays, which can be matched to material characteristics allowing higher process speeds and less energy consumption. Because the Tornado applies direct heat wherever needed, more energy is transformed into effective heat onto the PCB. The Tornado’s Infrared energy can also be shielded from temperature sensitive areas through masking.

AS of June 2006, PCBs worldwide have been fabricated without lead, making infrared the preferred alternative for repairing precise digital electronics since hot air stations tend to damage lead-free solder wire. The Tornado is the best for computer technicians working on electronics like iPods, mobile phones, laptops, and game stations.
The Tornado infra rework station consists of two units: the pre-heater and a hand held unit. The pre-heater is used as a base on which the PCB is placed secured with the help of a small magnetic foot. It is also used to preheat the PCB to a suitable temperature from the lower side. Once the PCB is preheated, the hand held unit is used to heat the desired part to a temperature sufficient to melt the solder after which the part can be removed.
Featuring relevant European safety directive(s), the Tornado boasts electrical power loading, a useful wavelength range of 2 to 10 microns, an average operating life of over 5,000 hours, and a mean maximum surface temperature of 685 degrees C, all for $536.42USD.
