Rework Soldering Stations

 Rework soldering stations are specifically designed for the rework and repair of surface mount Rework Soldering Stationsdevices (SMDs). The rework stations are used for de-soldering, cleaning, placement and soldering or re-soldering electronic components.

There are various makes and types of soldering rework stations available from makers such as Hakko, X-TRONIC, Weller, Kendal and Aoyue.

The controls and readouts on a digital rework station are very similar to a standard digital soldering station, the only differences on the rework station are the extra displays, knobs and/or push buttons that control the hot air flow and temperature.

The hot air blower or gun has many advantages over a soldering iron when desoldering and resoldering SMDs, especially multi lead components. The hot air gun also eliminates the risk of ESD (electro static discharge) damage and overheating that could be caused by the use of a soldering iron.
The hot air gun usually comes with a variety of different size, interchangeable nozzles that can be used to narrow or widen the airflow for various sized components.

Hot air guns can also be used for other jobs such as pre- heating and heat shrinking tubing.

The rework Stations all have a soldering iron and a hot air blower incorporated into them. Some of the soldering rework stations also come with other useful equipment such as a vacuum pick-up tool, fume extractor and test meter.

Having a soldering rework station makes reworking and repairing both quicker and easier than using just a soldering iron or soldering station.
