What is the Soldering Station?
The soldering stations consists of a soldering iron, extraction, soldering iron cleaner, solder and clamps. It allows hand soldering of electronic components.
Why use the Soldering Station?
The soldering iron is used to assemble electronic componets.
Training for the Soldering Station is provided during the Level 03 Safety Induction.
The soldering station is accessible on weekdays between 9:30am - 5:00pm.
To use the soldering station you must complete the following:
- Level 00 MSD Building Induction
- Level 01 Safety Induction (Online)
- Level 02 In-person Safety Induction
- Level 03 Machine Specific Safety Induction
Open Access times are available for all students from MSD, both undergraduate and postgraduate. Tools are only able to be booked out during Open Access.
