  • Salvaging electronic components from old PCBs.
  • Reflowing solder paste onto PCBs
  • Shrinking heat shrink tubing around wire connections
  • Heating up hot glue to remove or reposition items that were glued incorrectly
  • Heating small areas of electronic adhesives to assist in opening phones or tablets for repairs
