Good soldering station is usually a fundament of a workplace. Desoldering station is usually a necessity if you work in development or service. And a hot-air station? – this one is becoming a must at any development or rework of PCBs with SMT components. If we already know, that it´s ideal to have all these three device on a workbench, couldn´t they be integrated into one device?
The answer can be Weller WXR 3031
Right at the beginning it can be said, that in this case a connection into one station brings real benefits, rather than well-known negatives of various „3in1“, „7in1“ and similar products and agents :-).
Perhaps the biggest benefit is saving of space on a workbench and the same control interface for all tools. If you´re familiar with Weller WX2 stations, which we introduced to you in our articles, then you know, that they belong to a very top segment. If we “add” to them a section for a hot air, as well as other additional features and a possibility to connect a vacuum pickup, we receive a top class device which makes every electrician happy.
● 3 channels
● 420 (600W) total power
● temperature 100-450 (550) °C/ 200-850°C (hot-air part)
Available are 4 soldering tools (from micro up to powerful 200W) and 3 tools for desoldering. Concretely WXR 3031 set contains:
● WXR3 unit
● hot-air tool WXHAP
● desoldering tool WXDP 120

A big benefit for professional workplaces is also a possibility to record your work (traceability – temperature profile) over the USB port to a PC. USB port also serves for a possible firmware update. WXR3031 features intelligent identification of a connected tool and a parameter memory built-in in a given tool, intelligent power save function and a possibility to control several additional devices via the WX port.
WX series meets all requirements for demanding and precise everyday work. High power, user comfort and a wide range of soldering tools and tips will be probably beneficial even for your workplace.
