Soldering Tip Shapes
Soldering Tip Shape BCM/CM

Shape BCM/CM
This type differs from Shape BC with the addition of a hollow to its cut face, providing high solder retention capability.
It is used for drag soldering and correction of bridging.

Soldering Tip Shape BC/C

Shape BC/C
This type has a shape like a cone or column cut at a slant, which allows users to select the cut surface size depending on the workpiece.
It is used for drag soldering and pre-tinning of lead wires.
Download

Soldering Tip Shape B Shape B
All-round type which can be used from any direction and is easy to hold at any position.
Possible to solder any surface from small to large.
Download
Soldering Tip Shape D Shape D
This type has a shape like a flat-blade screwdriver and is capable of soldering by applying the tip in 2 ways: line and face.
The width (size of tip) suitable for the workpiece can be selected, and it can be used for any soldering work.
Download
Soldering Tip Shape I Shape I
This type has a thin conical end and is an ultrafine tip which is best suited for soldering at narrow pitches, etc.
It is the best for soldering micro components such as 0603, etc. and for repairing high-density-mounting P.W.Bs. such as in cellular phones, etc.
Download
Soldering Tip Shape J Shape J
This type differs from Shape B and I by bending the tip end and is capable of soldering by applying the tip in 2 ways: face and point.
It is used for drag soldering and correction of bridging.
Download
Soldering Tip Shape K Shape K
This type has a shape like a knife and is capable of soldering by applying the tip in 3 ways: line, face and point. It is used for soldering at narrow pitches, correction of bridging and drag soldering.
Download
Soldering Tip SMD Type Quad SMD Type: Quad Shape
This type is capable of heating many pins or lead wires at once and is used for rework of SMDs.
It is used for removal of QFP.
Download
Soldering Tip Shape SMD Type Tunnel SMD Type: Tunnel Shape
This type is capable of heating many pins or lead wires at once and is used for rework of SMDs.
It is used for removal of SOP.
Download
Soldering Tip Shape SMD Type Spatula SMD Type: Spatula Shape
This type is capable of heating many pins or lead wires at once and is used for rework of SMDs.
Soldering for thermal compression of flexible P.W.B., shield cases, connecter, etc.
Download
Soldering Tip Shape A Shape A
This type is like a square pyramid and all-round tip shape such as Shape B.
It is possible to solder any surface from small to large.
Download
Soldering Tip Shape H Shape H
This type differs from Shape J by cutting the tip end.
It is suitable for drag soldering and correction of bridging.
*Not suitable for correcting bridging by standing the tip end like Shape J.
Download
Soldering Tip Shape R Shape R
This type has a groove at the tip end.
It is suitable for removing ICs
Download
Soldering Tip Shape S Shape S
It is derived from Shape B, C, D and I, which is used for soldering at the narrow pitches.
Try Shape S as well as Shape I or K if the tip end of Standard type touches the nearby ICs.
Download
Soldering Tip Shape Concave Concave Shape
This type has a concave (or V-groove) at the end.
It provides excellent heat supply to solder joint and ensures sufficient solder flow-up.
Download
Soldering Tip Shape Heavy Duty Heavy Duty Type
This type is changed from basic types B, D and I by special processing.
It is changed by thickening the entire tip to increase heat storage and is the best for work needing high heat capacity.
Download
Soldering Tip Shape Long Life Type Long Life Type
This type is changed from basic types B, BC, C, D and K by special processing.
Our special treatment allows a tip to last about two times longer than the standard type. It's the optimum approach to preventing corrosion of short life tips.
