Metcal is pleased to introduce its new AC-STC Solder Tip Cleaner. Solder tips represent a significant portion of the cost of ownership for a solder station, and Metcal’s new Solder Tip Cleaner removes oxidation and extends the life of the solder tip. By placing the tip into the opening, the AC-STC Solder Tip Cleaner sense the tip and automatically activates, saving the operator time.

Oxidation on the tip degrades performance by creating a barrier that decreases the thermal transfer of the heat to the solder joint. This barrier slows performance and, if not corrected, will damage the tip. Proper tip care is essential to maximize the life of the tip.

The AC-STC Solder Tip Cleaner features a replaceable brush system that pulls excess solder away from the tip into a removable collection tray for disposal while removing oxidation from the tip. A splashguard prevents debris from escaping the collection area. Features include:
Contactless activation
Compact footprint
Universal power supply
ESD safe
Quiet operation

The unit ships with a universal power adapter that ensures that the unit is ready for use. To learn more, go to www.metcal.com/stc.
