JBC Tools, Inc., a leading provider of soldering and rework tools, announces that it will officially launch its new range of innovations in Booth #1303 at the upcoming IPC APEX Expo, scheduled to take place February 28 - March 1, 2012 at the San Diego Convention Center in California.

JBC will showcase the new TFT station that allows access to the menus by touching the screen to change parameters, ensuring total soldering control. Standard features include sleep mode and hibernation, in addition to the standard features  that JBC soldering stations are known for. The high resolution 3.5" TFT touch screen allows the ability to reproduce videos with a very high quality, as well as microscope images via USB, graphics, and more.

An intuitive user interface enables quick access to the main menu for viewing and changing parameters. Additionally, users can obtain information about the power supplied to the tool and temperature of the tip in real time. Apart from the typical applications, the TFT station incorporates some additional applications such as power and temperature graphics, clock, calendar, calculator, note book, alarm, unit converter , etc. Also, the station permits connection to other devices including digital thermometers and the Ethernet using the RJ-45  connector, enabling software updates, monitoring of the equipment and remote control of all the stations connected to the Internet.

JBC also will showcase the New PH Infrared Preheater that heats PCBs from below, allowing hand soldering to be completed much faster and at lower soldering tip temperatures. As a result, solder tip life is increased and there is a reduced risk of thermal stress on components and PCBs.  The preheater features a Teaching function that utilizes a thermocouple for the first PCB to enable profiles to be learned quickly. For subsequent work on the same type of board, the use of the thermocouple is not required, greatly reducing work time.

According to Gerald Gardener, JBC Tools’ Sales Manager, “This year, we will exhibit at the IPC APEX Expo. This is where we usually launch our new products as it is one of the most important meeting points for the electronics market in U.S. We have some very interesting, innovative products being developed this year and look forward to introducing them to you there.”
