Soldering Station in India
Best Soldering Stations @ Best Price in India for Thru-Hole and SMD Soldering.
Buying Soldering Station in India @ Best Price is Not Easy. With so many Brands like Goot, Weller, Hakko and some Chinese Brands, it get difficult to select the Best Soldering Stations at Best Price in India until and unless you are in the Electronics and PCB Assembly or Rework field for 10-15 Years.
We are in the Field of Electronics, PCB Assembly / Soldering and Rework for over 16 Years Now. Hence we know all the Advantages and Disadvantages of some of the Best and Well Known Brands of Soldering Stations like Goot, Weller, Hakko, Chinese Brands etc.
Here I will discuss in detail about Thru-Hole and SMD Temperature Controlled Soldering Station (Non-ESD Safe and ESD-Safe) with their Price, Advantages and Disadvantages.
Types of Soldering Station Available in India
Following are the Different Types of Soldering Stations Available in India:
1. Analog Temperature Controlled
Analog Temperature Controlled Soldering Stations have Knob to Control and Set the Temperature of the Soldering Iron Tip. They do now have any Digital Display to see the Set Temperature. They are also less accurate (More Tolerance) as far as the Temperature Setting is Concerned. Price of these Soldering Stations is Less.

2. Digital Temperature Controlled
Digital Temperature Controlled Soldering Stations have Button to Increase or Decrease and Set the Temperature. They have Digital Display to show the Actual Temperature at the Soldering Iron Tip. These Stations are More Accurate and have less Tolerance. Price of these Stations is more that their Analog Counterparts.
3. ESD Safe and Non-ESD Safe
Analog or Digital Temperature Controlled Soldering Station can be either Non-ESD Safe (Price is Less) or ESD Safe (Price is More). Because more and more SMD Electronic Components are been used in Electronic Gadgets, I suggest all technicians to Use only ESD-Safe Soldering Station for Protection from Static Electricity. Technicians doing Mobile Phone Repairing Work must use only ESD Safe Soldering Station apart from using ESD Safe Products.

4. Leaded and Lead-Free Soldering
Melting Point of Eutectic Leaded Solder (Sn/Pb – 63/37) is 183 Degree Celsius whereas Melting Point is Lead-Free Solder (SAC – Tin/Silver/Copper – 96.5%/3% /0.5%) is 217 Degree Celsius.
Therefore, Not all Soldering Stations in India are suitable for both Leaded and Lead-Free Soldering. A Soldering Station of Upto 60 Watt is suitable for leaded soldering. For Lead-Free, we need a Station of Higher Wattage for Fast Melting of the Cored Solder Wire and Better Thermal Recovery. A Station of 70 Watt and Above is best suitable for Lead-Free Soldering. Most such stations will have Composit Tip where the Heating Element and the Tip are Combined Together for Fast Heating and Fast Thermal Recovery during Soldering.
Goot RX-802AS is one of the Best Lead-Free Soldering Station available in India.
