Classic soldering iron

The mta soldering iron is the most popular soldering technology probably because most customers are looking to upgrade from hand soldering with the iron.

The classic soldering iron can be integrated on any of our standard soldering platforms including: MRC500, TR300, OEM, and station.

The main features of our classic soldering iron head include:

  • Multiple adjustments allow easy configuration for specific applications
  • Robust structure guarantees tip and wire feeder do not get misaligned accidently
  • Soldering tips have a long life span and can be changed quickly and easily
  • Extensive tip selection to suit a wide variety of applications
  • Jam-free wire feeder is mounted directly on the head to provide tight process control
  • Lead free compatible

7 reasons to choose the mta classic soldering iron

  1. The soldering tip is separate from the heating element, so the heating element does not need to be replaced as frequently as the tip.  This reduces consumable cost. 
  2. The iron’s tip moves down without using the z-axis. A pneumatically-dampened spring lowers the tip to allow compliance between the tip and part.  This provides good thermal transfer while protecting the parts and tip.
  3. The robust head structure is machined from solid material – not stamped sheet metal or die-cast part – to provide a rigid platform for the iron and wire feeder.
  4. The machined clamping system offers easy adjustment and precise alignment.  Once tightened, the position is fixed and will not change until loosened – there is no risk of accidental misalignment as a result of heavy use or while changing tips.
  5. The precise jam-free wire feeder is mounted on the head – directly at the solder joint.  This provides tight process control of the amount of wire fed.  The wire can be pulled out of the solder pool to prevent solder spatter.  Since there is no long feed tube, the solder wire does not kink or get jammed.
  6. Integrated fume extraction nozzle mounted directly above the solder joint safely removes fumes.
  7. In addition to the iron, wire feeder, and fume extraction nozzle, the head can support several optional devices such as: cameras, flux dispensers, dual feeders, dual irons, and the list goes on.
