Soldering, Desoldering & Rework of Through-Hole/Surface Mount PCB's
PACE's MBT 350 is a self contained, 3 channel rework station that offers high capacity, low temperature SMT/Thru-Hole soldering, desoldering and repair. The unit features three individually powered and controlled handpiece channels, providing the capability to run 3 different IntelliHeat handpieces simultaneously, and at different temperatures!
The MBT 350 also features a crystal clear Digital LCD Screen which displays the temperatures of all 3 handpiece channels, in real time! The easy to read LCD control panel is uncomplicated with added features such as temperature set back and password protection. The MBT-350 includes TD-100 ThermoDrive Soldering Iron, SX-100 Sodr-X-Tractor Desoldering Handpiece and MT-100 MiniTweez Handpiece (IntelliHeat versions) along with associated Tip & Tool Stands. Tips sold separately.
The TD-100 Ergonomic Soldering Iron uses a patented Tip-Heater Cartridge which can be changed in seconds without tools, and most tips heat up within 10 seconds flat! Performance/responsiveness is exceptional, perfect for the most demanding Lead-Free or multilayer soldering. Yet it can also handle the most delicate flexible printed circuits. Over 100 soldering tip geometries are available as well as over 30 surface mount removal tips. To really protect your Tip-Heater Cartridges and fine point tips from oxidation, the TD-100 can be used with PACE's Instant-Setback Cubby. The cubby automatically drops the tip temperature to 176°C (350°F) if it is in the cubby for more than 45 seconds, which maximizes the life of your tips! Up to two Instant-SetBack Cubbies can be connected to the MBT 350.
Ideal for both through-hole and surface mount desoldering, the clog-free SX-100 Sodr-X-Tractor is the best performing solder extraction tool on the market today. The handpiece can be used with a disposable Sodr/Flux-Trap paper solder collection chamber or re-cleanable Glass Chamber. When the filter is full, just pull out the chamber, pop out the old filter and replace with a new one - all within 15 seconds! The heater's laser-trimmed, Platinum RTD Temperature Sensor is 5 times more accurate than conventional thermocouples. The widest range of standard, precision and long-reach desoldering tips are available, including 2 and 4-sided Pik-Tips, and Flo-D-Sodr desoldering tips available for safe removal of excess surface solders and BGA pad clean-up.
Finally, the MT-100 MiniTweez High Capacity Micro Tweezer is perfect for one-handed removal of chips (including 0201's), SOIC's and other surface mounted devices. Like the TD-100, the MT-100 uses Tip-Heater Cartridges which can be changed in seconds without tools, and most tips heat up within 10 seconds. With 11 styles of component removal tips available, MT-100 tips cost less than half of our competitors!
Easily Expands to Increase Capabilities!
The MBT 350 is far more than a desoldering station. Its functionality can be easily expanded by adding any one of 8 IntelliHeat compatible handpieces including:
1.) SX-100 Sodr-X-Tractor Desoldering Handpiece (comes with MBT 350) 2.) TD-100 Tip-Heater Cartridge Soldering Iron (comes with MBT 350) 3.) MT-100 MiniTweez Micro Tweezer (comes with MBT 350) 4.) TJ-70 ThermoJet Hot Air Handpiece (optional) 5.) PS-90 High Capacity Soldering Iron (optional) 6.) TP-100 ThermoPik (optional) 7.) TT-65 ThermoTweez Thermal Tweezer (optional) and 8.) TJ-85 ThermoJet Hot Air Pencil (optional).
