Aoyue 2702A Soldering Station - Review

    January12, 2015

I have already worked with 2702A Aoyue soldering station and everything went smoothly. It is a really complete soldering system; very fast temperature response, lots of accessories. I have been using this 2702A Aoyue soldering station when soldering very fine surface mount components (SMD) in sizes 0402, 0603. The station maintains a constant temperature when the set value is reached.
 AOYUE is a leading manufacturer of soldering tools in China and Europe. Aoyue is not well known name of soldering irons in USA and Canada, but in recent years it becoming more popular. It manufactures a line of soldering irons and soldering stations that are the latest technology.

This Aoyue soldering station comes with a smoke absorber. This is great feature of Aoyue soldering iron – I love it. This is good safety feature as well. Smoke absorber absorbs all hazardous smokes from flux and solder that are dangerous for human health. Smoke absorber is attached on handle of Aoyue soldering iron and air intake of smoke absorber is positioned just little bit above the iron tip.
Of course, it is possible to buy smoke absorber as separate unit - there are many different models of smoke absorber on market in USA. Smoke absorber should be positioned close to soldering iron in order to absorb most of fumes so you always need to pay attention to perform soldering work as close to smoke absorber as possible. Sometimes this can be difficult to achieve, for example, if you perform soldering work under microscope. In addition, if you move soldering iron to different place, you also have to move smoke absorber. In these situations it is great convenience to use 2702 Aoyue soldering iron which has smoke absorber attached on handle – so when you move soldering iron, smoke absorber follows this move since it is attached on soldering iron.

Aoyue 2702 soldering station - Conclusion
