Plato: Replacement Solder Iron TipsPlato™ Soldering Tools From NTE Electronics, Inc.
NTE is proud to carry the Plato™ line of soldering tools. Since July of 2006, the European RoHS regulations have forced the electronic industry to transition to lead-free soldering. Higher heat, and more active fluxes common in lead-free soldering, shorten the life of hand-soldering tips and solder pots.
Plato™ offers quality products that have been tested and proven to withstand harsh, lead-free soldering conditions and enhance your productivity. Let Plato™ be your guide for the lead-free/RoHS transition!
Using a high quality Plato™ soldering tip increases soldering speed and decreases the total cost of manufacture. Higher temperatures and high tin content solders, common in lead-free soldering processes, place additional strain on soldering iron tips. The long life of a Plato™ soldering iron tip reduces tip changes, decreasing the total number of tips used and decreasing production time.
Rapid Heat Recovery:
Plato™ soldering tips are constructed from highly conductive premium grade copper to transmit heat to the work more quickly than other brands of soldering tips. This quick heat recovery enables more joints to be soldered per minute, thus reducing manufacturing time and costs.
