Soldering Iron

A Soldering Iron is a hand tool used in soldering. It supplies heat to melt solder so that it can flow into the joint between two workpieces. The soldering process occurs when the soldering iron produces high heat and melts the solder wires. The tip of the device is generally divided into two classes, copper or nickel. This is because copper and nickel materials are resistant to intense heat and electricity. The intense heat required for the soldering process is supplied by the power capacity of the soldering iron.
