The New FX888D Soldering Station from American Hakko


Whether setting up a lab for the first time, or replacing old equipment, selecting a new soldering station can be overwhelming. There are plenty of options out there, and while many of them are quality items, it’s hard to know which ones would fit your needs the best.

Thankfully the new FX888D from American Hakko Products Inc. is here to make that selection a little easier. Besides the visually pleasing design, the functionality and reasonable cost make this a new top choice among engineers and beginners alike. It quickly heats to the user-selected temperature preset, has an interchangeable tip, and a low temperature alarm.

The FX888D is a 70 W unit that is easy to use and will get the job done quickly.
