|Power Plus Tips - Power plus tips are designed with a larger copper mass and extra plating. These design changes have helped increase soldering performance as well as tip life. Users of the EB-9000s can now experience significant performance gains while soldering heavy duty jobs without increasing the tip temperature.
|EB-5000S Soldering Station - Easy Braid's soldering stations provide years of reliable performance with the use of curie heat technology, a scientific technology that regulates power instantly to respond to thermal requirements of solder joints. Precisely controlled temperature and quick-process-time are required during these applications, and products deliver the perfect response with no temperature overshoot.

|More About Easy Braid Co.
As products, packaging, and technologies constantly change in the electronics industry, high quality and consistent performance is essential. By manufacturing in compliance with ISO9002 standards, and through our strict adherence to Statistical Process Control (SPC), EasyBraid Co. can assure you the highest quality product and will guarantee the consistency of that quality. Our goal is to provide the complete solution to rework and quality improvement along with value and superior service. Our innovative product line and commitment to high quality make EasyBraid Co. a leader in the PCB assembly industry. Our products include desoldering braid, soldering iron tips and stations, stencil rolls, sponges, swabs, fume extraction equipment, stencil cleaning equipment, AOI and x-ray inspection systems.
Our wick products are made using ultra fine, oxide-free copper braided into a weave configuration that maximizes thermal conduction and solder retention. Immediately after braiding, the wick is cleaned in an environmentally friendly process unique to EasyBraid Co. Every precaution is taken to insure that the braid remains oxide free until it is coated through our proprietary flux process. Our closed-weave design requires less time for desoldering, thus minimizing lifted pads and thermal damage. Up to 30% more solder mass is absorbed which enables an operator to get on and off a connection quickly using less wick to accomplish the task.
After the patent for the Metcal soldering irons expired (MX500, MFR Systems, PS900), EasyBraid researched and developed soldering irons and tip cartridges based on Curie Heat Technology. Our soldering systems and solder tips are compatible with 13.56MHz and 470KHz power supplies while adding improvements of our own. Tip cartridges have gold plated connectors to prevent oxidation and the tip shafts are color coded for easy temperature identification Also, advances in the plating process have improved tip life lowering the cost of ownership. EasyBraid products are produced in accordance with ISO 9000 & ISO 14000 standards and meet either TUV, GS, CE or NRTL safety requirements.
Soldering stations EB5000S and EB9000S are two of EasyBraid’s stations with excellent heat up and recovery times. Tips used with EB5000S are the unique ET series and tips used with EB9000S are the EBM series. The most recently added soldering station is the EB2000S, a lightweight and compact unit, using the EK, EP, and ES series of tips and operates at 470 KHz. All three units provide cartridge and tip flexibility.
Purex by EasyBraid is a full line of fume extraction equipment designed specifically for the industrial workplace. Unlike most units that are limited to fans pulling air through a filter, Purex by EasyBraid constantly senses the airflow and filters; thus, insuring a consistent flow while extending the life of the filters and the motor components.
