The life insurance for soldering tips

    There is no remedy against the erosion of the soldering tip anyway, that's what it was thought until now. It's time to rethink. The patented S-Line has successfully proven that the use of the correct alloy can greatly minimize soldering tip erosion and thus significantly extend the life of a soldering tip. What is true for the S-line and erosion is even more true for the new M-line in terms of oxidation. This is because the new M-Line can not only reduce oxidation, but almost completely prevent it.

    Short facts

    almit_a S-Line: Minimization of solder tip erosion
    almit_a M-line: Reduction of oxidation

    Special advantages

    The S line allows for minimizing erosion, the M line prevents oxidation.
    The result:

    almit_a Reduced soldering tip consumption
    almit_a Reduced soldering time and labour costs
    almit_a Reduced solder consumption

    = enormous cost saving

    Dramatically reduced tip erosion
