Regular maintenance and cleaning of soldering tips is important to prevent oxidation. While it is common to use wet sponge or brass wire to clean the tips, such cleaning accessories might not be able to clean off the solder residue completely. Fret not, Hakko has the powered tip cleaners that will help you do the job! 

These tip cleaners can clean the tips effectively and efficiently using the rotating brushes. Find out about our tip cleaners below!
