Plato manufactures high-quality, long-life replacement soldering tips, desoldering tips, and a variety of electronic production accessories used in the manufacture and repair of electronic assemblies. Plato soldering iron tips are for Weller soldering stations, including WTCPT, WES50, WES51, WD1, WD2, and WSL. Plato's replacement soldering and desoldering tips are made of oxygen-free, high-conductivity copper and are iron plated to resist erosion by solder to assure long life. Plato offers a broad range of sizes and configurations to suit your needs. Plato is a wholly owned subsidiary of Techspray.
Using high-quality Plato soldering tips increases soldering speed and decreases the total cost of manufacture. Higher temperatures and high tin content solders, common in lead-free soldering processes, place additional strain on soldering iron tips. The long life of a Plato soldering iron tip reduces tip changes, decreasing the total number of tips used and decreasing downtime.
Rapid Heat Recovery
Plato soldering iron tips are constructed from highly conductive premium grade copper to transmit heat to the work more quickly than other brands of soldering tips. Quick heat recovery enables more joints to be soldered per minute, reducing manufacturing time and costs.
Tip Shapes & Sizes for Every Application
Plato soldering tips are available in a wide variety of geometries including pointed / conical, blade/knife, chisel/screwdriver, and bevel. This allows you to solder fine contact areas, reach isolated areas on dense board designs, solder large pad areas, drag solder, or quickly remove solder with desoldering braid.
