Hakko Announces FM-2030 Heavy Duty Soldering Iron, New Tips, & Discontinuation of the 999-137 Filter


The availability of the new Hakko FM-2030 Heavy Duty Soldering Iron was one of three product-related announcements made by American Hakko Products (Hakko) recently. An extended reach version of the Hakko T15-D32 Tip and the discontinuation of the Hakko 999-137 Combo/HEPA Filter rounded out the announcements.

The Hakko FM-2030 is a new soldering iron handpiece only compatible with the Hakko FM-203 Soldering Station and FM-206 High Performance 3-port Rework System (if attached to anything other than the FM-203 D port or FM-206 CH2/CH3 ports, a grip error or connector error will occur). Ideal for challenging soldering applications (such as heavy ground planes or high heat sink tasks), the FM-2030 features a higher mass tip offering twice the power of regular T15 tips (the FM-2030 uses T22 Series tips).

Note: Please contact Hakko for the FM203-UPGR upgrade, which allows FM-203 stations with serial numbers before 0220311002129 to function with the FM-2030.

EXTEND YOUR REACH
Similarly shaped as the T15-D32, the Hakko T15-DL32 Tip has a reach that has been extended from 5 mm to 10 mm. The two opposing tip facets have been stretched from 1.6 mm to 7 mm.

The Hakko T15-DL32 Tip is now a standard stocking tip for the North American market.


ANOTHER HJ3100-RELATED DISCONTINUATION
Hakko's 999-137 Combo/HEPA Filter is the latest HJ3100-related product to be discontinued. The new A1586 Main Filter replaces the 999-137 and when used in the HJ3100 it will maintain filtering efficiency and increase airflow performance. For maximum performance, use the A1585 Pre-Filter in combination with the A1586.

Although comparably constructed, use of the A1586 Main Filter in the HJ3100 requires the Hakko Filter Adapter Frame (999-241). As previously mentioned, the 999-241 is FREE from American Hakko.
