T17-BCM3 Bevel Tip
3mm/45° x 10mm Concave Bevel
FM-2026 N2 Bevel Tip with indent, 3mm/45° x 10mm.
This tip is used with the FM-2026 Nitrogen Soldering Iron.
The BCM Tip Shape is a popular shape that is used for drag soldering. The small cavity created by the concave face of the soldering iron tip provides a reservoir of solder that is used to create the solder joints as the tip is passed over the lead and pad. As the tip passes over the lead and pad, the solder wets to the surfaces, and the surface tension of the solder between the solder joint and the concave face balances allowing only enough solder to remain at the joint for proper filet formation.
NOTE: T17 Series Tips require the use of the proper nozzle assembly when used with Nitrogen. For T17- BCM2 use nozzle assembly A (PN B2706) and for T17-BCM3 use nozzle assembly G (PN B2900).
