Soldering/desoldering tips and cartridges transfer heat to the connection point during soldering work. They are used on hand pieces in soldering stations. Cartridges heat up quickly and typically come in chisel, hoof, bevel and conical forms. Tips allow high heat transfer and are more durable than cartridges. The heating element is built into the hand piece, which allows tips to be replaced at a more cost-effective rate. Soldering tips come in round, bent, flat, chisel and knife forms. Micro and fine chisel tips allow precise soldering and desoldering.
