PACE Soldering Station MBT-250 – Review
Pace soldering station MBT-250 is professional soldering station that is designed for professionals. Pace solder station has been developed mainly for high volume industrial soldering and de-soldering, for hand soldering in industrial manufacturing, and for all rework and repair of circuit boards including both through-hole and surface-mount boards.
If you or your company use soldering stations on daily basis for a variety of soldering and de-soldering projects, you should consider the Pace soldering station as your first choice. Serious consideration should be given to the Pace soldering station if you prefer good quality over low cost and don't mind spending the extra buck to get best soldering station on market.
So why would you buy Pace soldering station MBT-250 SDPT for over $2000.00 when you can buy Aoyue 2702 soldering station for $250.00? Aoyue 2702 soldering station just looks similar to Pace soldering station but you can feel difference between these two soldering stations at first touch. I think that MBT-250 Pace soldering station is the best soldering system currently available on market, so over time it will pay off.
I have been using this soldering station mostly for soldering and de-soldering surface mount components with the use of a microscope (a microscope is not part of MBT-250 Pace soldering station). It really is a joy to work with this soldering station and it is great feeling knowing that it can satisfy all your soldering needs.
Pace soldering station MBT-250 has 185 watts total power.
What will you get when you buy Pace solder station MBT-250 in the USA
When you buy the Pace soldering station MBT-250 in the USA you will get:
- PS-90 Pace soldering iron,
- SX-90 De-soldering Handpiece,
- TP-65 ThermoPik Handpiece
- TT-65 ThermoTweez Handpiece
PS-90 soldering iron is a very slim iron ideal for soldering of surface-mount components as well as for soldering of through-hole components.
SX-90 De-soldering handpiece works as de-soldering pump, making it very useful for de-soldering of components and cleaning holes on printed circuit boards.
TT-65 ThermoTweez handpiece is an excellent tool for removing surface-mount resistors and capacitors.
I do not use the TP-65 ThermoPik handpiece much because for each surface mount IC you want to remove, you need the matching tip – same size and shape as the particular IC. I think this handpiece is great for removing ICs in high volume manufacturing where you use same tip for removing same IC.
Two additional optional handpieces are available separately:
- TJ-70 ThermoJet.
- TJ-80 Precision ThermoJet
The ThermoJet handpiece provides continuous flow of precision focused hot air for component installation and surface-mount land preparation.
Pace soldering station MBT-250 is, in my opinion, the best soldering system currently available on market in the USA. In conclusion of the review of Pace MBT-250 soldering station I give 5 out of 5 stars for this professional soldering iron.
