Finding the Right Soldering Iron and Soldering Tools for Your School
Should students be learning to use a soldering iron in the classroom? By many accounts, the answer is a definite and enthusiasts ‘Yes.’ Soldering is an extremely versatile skill that is used regularly by everyone from metalworkers to electricians to plumbers to construction workers to artists. The key to bringing soldering into your school’s classrooms is dependent on finding the right equipment from the right supplier, and at PicoKit, we believe we are that supplier.
What Sets PicoKit Apart Regarding Soldering Iron Tools?
If your school is looking to establish a contract to buy soldering equipment for the classroom, you will obviously be planning to thoroughly vet whichever business you end up choosing. Here are a few reasons to consider PicoKit:
Our educational background. Our founder, Philip Tallents, was a high school
teacher before he launched PicoKit. He built the business as a way to develop
and sell electronic kits for students studying industrial technology and
design. In the years since, we’ve expanded our operations significantly, to the
point where we are now building and selling large CNC equipment to
manufacturers around the world.
Our continued focus on selling to schools. While we’ve grown — both
in our scope and in the customers we serve — we have retained a unique focus on
meeting the needs of schools. It’s in school buildings that tomorrow’s
engineers, manufacturing designers and fabricators are waiting to learn. We
believe we can help that progression along by making it easier for schools to
get their hands on the right equipment, whether that’s a CNC router or a
digital soldering station.
· Our wide selection of soldering equipment. Soldering is an activity that requires not just the soldering iron itself, but also a soldering station, a soldering iron stand or holder, an LED magnifying lamp, a set of angled side cutters and more. .
What You Can Expect from PicoKit Regarding Soldering Equipment?
When your school buys a set of soldering irons or a brand-new soldering iron holder from PicoKit, here are a few things you can expect from the experience:
We will help you find what you need. The needs of a learning environment are slightly
different from the needs of a business environment, which is part of the reason
schools are underserved in the product categories we sell. We have experience
in working with schools to provide suitable solutions.
We will deliver reliable products. Safety and reliability are top-line priorities when it
comes to the classroom. We have used and tested the soldering tools we carry
and can attest to them meeting the lofty standards of the education sector.
· We will deliver support. One of our top calling cards, since we started in 2007, has been customer service. As an Australian company, we can provide on-the-ground support to our customers, from setup and training to troubleshooting.
Why Trust PicoKit as a Place to Buy a Soldering Iron or Soldering Station?
Because of our deep, years-long background in education, we know both the importance of teaching fabrication skills in schools and the safety concerns that some administrators, teachers or parents may have. We can thread this needle delicately to provide a solution that makes everyone happy. .
