No compromise. 05/13/2019

Be­sigheim/Ger­many, June 2019 – Weller Tools, the world’s No.1 brand in hand sol­der­ing so­lu­tions, ex­pands its Ac­tive RT sol­der­ing tip pro­gram. The ex­panded tip se­ries of­fers the high­est pre­ci­sion, while max­i­miz­ing per­for­mance and power. The tips work ex­clu­sively with the high per­for­mance WX plat­form of sol­der­ing sta­tions.

Widest range of high-end sol­der­ing tips WX RT Active Tips

Whether in the elec­tron­ics field, med­ical tech­nol­ogy or aero­space field, the in­dus­try is mov­ing faster and the com­po­nents are steadily be­com­ing smaller, more com­plex and more pow­er­ful.

The sol­der­ing in­dus­try is no dif­fer­ent and in order to meet these in­creas­ing de­mands, Weller is ex­pand­ing its ex­ist­ing Ac­tive RT sol­der­ing tip se­ries. Weller has and will con­tinue to offer the widest range of these high-end sol­der­ing tips – all linked to one sin­gle sol­der­ing sta­tion from the WX se­ries. “As al­ways, Weller makes No Com­pro­mise: we’re of­fer­ing max­i­mum per­for­mance, power and pre­ci­sion with our new RT Lines of tips. They also pro­vide max­i­mum pro­tec­tion to the PCBs and the com­po­nents you are sol­der­ing, im­prov­ing yield and ul­ti­mately re­duc­ing cost”, says Philippe Buidin, VP Mar­ket­ing, Weller & Gen­eral Man­ager, Weller Tools GmbH.

IPC in­dus­try stan­dard

The new Ac­tive RT sol­der­ing tips com­ply fully with IPC in­dus­try stan­dards. The MS ver­sions are also MIL-SPEC com­pli­ant and there­fore pro­tect both the printed cir­cuit board and com­po­nent. This not only achieves the best re­sults, but suc­cess­fully man­ages to keep run­ning costs as low as pos­si­ble. The boomerang han­dle de­sign al­lows for pre­cise han­dling while pro­vid­ing an er­gonomic and se­cure grip.

The patented tip/han­dle unit en­ables speedy, has­sle-free tool­less tip change. The ex­tended RT se­ries with the three sub-se­ries RT Pico, RT Micro and RT Ultra cov­ers a wide range of point sizes and geome­tries for al­most every sol­der­ing ap­pli­ca­tion al­low­ing pre­ci­sion work from the small­est micro range com­po­nents to ro­bust ap­pli­ca­tions with max­i­mum en­ergy re­quire­ments.

RT Pico sol­der­ing tips

The new Ac­tive RT Pico sol­der­ing tips de­liver pin­point per­for­mance and max­i­mum pre­ci­sion for micro-sol­der­ing ap­pli­ca­tions – even with the small­est micro com­po­nents that are barely vis­i­ble to the eye, rang­ing from 0402 to 01005 in size. The short dis­tance be­tween the sol­der­ing tip and han­dle al­lows for ex­tremely pre­cise work and max­i­mum con­trol. In this way, dam­age to the highly sen­si­tive micro com­po­nents can be pre­vented re­duc­ing the num­ber of ex­pen­sive re­jects.

RT Micro sol­der­ing tips

The proven Ac­tive RT Micro sol­der­ing tip range has been bol­stered by new tip sizes and geome­tries, of­fer­ing an even broader range of ap­pli­ca­tions as well as ex­tremely fast heat-up and re­cov­ery times.

RT Ultra sol­der­ing tips

The new Ac­tive RT Ultra tips de­signed for rugged sol­der­ing ap­pli­ca­tions meet max­i­mum en­ergy re­quire­ments with an in­no­v­a­tive Ther­mal Core heat­ing el­e­ment. There­fore an in­di­vid­u­ally re­quired en­ergy sup­ply and con­stant tem­per­a­ture can be guar­an­teed at the con­tact point of the sol­dered sur­face.


All new Ac­tive sol­der­ing tips also im­press with:

-       in­tel­li­gent sol­der­ing iron tech­nol­ogy, in­clud­ing mo­tion sen­sor

-       re­duced risk of burns when chang­ing sol­der­ing tips

-       dig­i­tal data stor­age in the in­tel­li­gent sol­der­ing tool and in the sol­der­ing sta­tion


Weller Gen­uine label

Ac­tive RT sol­der­ing tips carry the Weller Gen­uine label. Gen­uine Weller tips pro­tect the sol­der­ing iron from ir­repara­ble dam­age. Weller tips are de­signed for ex­cel­lent heat trans­fer to de­liver ideal sol­der­ing joints while en­sur­ing op­ti­mal and con­sis­tent per­for­mance which leads to cost sav­ings.

New sol­der­ing tip-finder

The ex­tended Ac­tive RT sol­der­ing tips un­der­lines Wellers holis­tic, in­no­v­a­tive ap­proach by pro­vid­ing a con­sis­tent so­lu­tion for all high-end ap­pli­ca­tions in com­bi­na­tion with five dif­fer­ent WX sol­der­ing irons and WX sol­der­ing sta­tions. The new sol­der­ing tip-finder on­com­pro­mise can be used to se­lect the best tip for the re­spec­tive sol­der­ing task with­out com­pro­mises. It has never been eas­ier or bet­ter to de­liver max­i­mum pre­ci­sion, per­for­mance with op­ti­mum en­ergy at the sol­der­ing point.
