Weller - Professional Solutions

Analysts value the global electronic equipment product market at well over $2 trillion per year. From smart phones and tablets to video game consoles and e-readers, electronics products are part of everyday life – both in the home and the office.

Most, if not all, major electronics brands turn to outside companies not only to support the design, testing and manufacturing, but also the repair of their innovations. Productivity is critical because it enables the manufacturer to control costs and keep electronics affordable for the consumer. And that’s where specialty tools from Weller Tools make a difference.

The manufacturing processes for electronics products are fundamentally different from those of other machinery and equipment. Specialized tools are required when integrated circuits and miniaturization technologies come into play. Devices are smaller than ever before, which presents unique challenges for the technicians working on circuit boards. They may need to manipulate a part the size of a grain of pepper.

Weller serves this industry with products, including soldering, desoldering and fume extraction tools used for circuit board assembly and rework. The brand’s latest innovation is a rework station with the most power on the market as well as a soldering iron with the fastest heat-up time.

In addition to optimizing productivity, electronics manufacturers are committed to improving energy efficiency. Being energy efficient not only lessens manufacturing’s impact on the environment, but it makes good operational sense. The new soldering iron from Weller® includes an intelligent motion sensor that puts the product in stand-by mode when not in use. This saves energy and increases the lifetime of the product. Medical device manufacturers, in particular, are facing a tighter regulatory environment, which makes cost reduction more important than ever.
