The Back Story

In the soldering industry, the name Weller® carries a lot of weight. Carl Weller patented the first hand-soldering tool to heat and cool rapidly in 1941. Weller Manufacturing Company was founded in 1945 as a family partnership near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.  Over the years, manufacturers of many types of products – from televisions to washing machines – came to rely on Weller® for its quality and reliability. Today Weller® tools play a role in the manufacture of electronics innovations around the world.

  • Research & Design engineers use Weller® soldering tools to exchange components as they test products and prepare them for mass production
  • Technicians use Weller soldering tools for touch-up work at the end of the production line, such as cleaning up faults and joints
  • Technicians use Weller® soldering tools when a product comes off the line with a flaw and requires significant rework
  • Service professionals use Weller® soldering tools when a product comes back for under-warranty repair

In addition to soldering and desoldering technology, Weller® makes fume extraction systems, which enable clean, safe workplaces.

Game Changers

Weller® recently introduced its WXD 2, a high-power soldering and desoldering station that features a 35-second heat-up time and extended product life. Unlike traditional units that take three minutes to heat up and are left on for an entire shift, the WXD 2 includes a motion sensor that automatically puts the tool in standby temperature when it’s not in use. Building that type of intelligence into the product not only lowers energy consumption, but also increases the life of the heating element and nozzles. The WXD 2 innovation is part of a larger rollout of products from the WX family, which will continue into 2015.
