Product Spotlight: Conductive Fiberglass Trays

Posted on by Andy in Product Spotlight Leave a comment

Molded Fiber Glass Tray offers a line of conductive fiberglass trays. Along with being safe to bake PCBs (printed circuit boards) at constant temperatures of up to 250°F these trays protect against electrostatic damage and are resistant to grease, solvents, cutting oils, mild acids, and alkaline solutions.

Molded Fiber Glass Trays Design:

These fiberglass trays are designed to stand up to the rigors of assembly and rework operations. They are specifically built for compatibility with many transport systems, usable on conveyors and carts without bending or sagging. The trays also can withstand large temperature ranges, up to 300°F, so they can be used in ovens for moisture removal and rework. Molded Fiber Glass Tray totes are also available for purchase.


  • Wire reinforced edges for dimensional stability
  • Smooth, seamless construction for easy cleaning
  • Will not sag or bend
  • Safe for baking boards in ovens


  • Continuous temperature range: -60° to 250°F
  • Maximum temperature: 300°F
  • Thickness: 0.08”

Product Spotlight: Weller WSM1C

Posted on by Andy in Product Spotlight Leave a comment

The Weller WSM1C cordless rechargeable soldering and rework system gives you the power of a corded station with increased mobility.

Weller WSM1C Station Design:

Unlike other cordless soldering irons, the WSM1C is a full station with a wide temperature range and a short heat-up time. By having the battery in the station rather than in the soldering iron, the Weller WSM1C can have a powerful lithium-ion rechargeable battery that gives up to 1 hour of soldering capacity with a 20 minute recharge time. While the iron is still corded to the station, the unit can be easily used anywhere, from inside vehicles to outdoors. The WSM1C works well even on a normal workbench, as you have the option of plugging it into a wall outlet for long term continuous use.


  • Built-in Stop+Go function saves energy and extends tip life
  • Touch screen control
  • Temperature-locking function
  • Two programmable pre-set temperatures
  • Integrated, ergonomically designed 50W micro-soldering pencil
  • Changeable, high-efficiency RT3 micro-soldering chisel tip with integrated heating element
  • Safety rest with WDC2 dry cleaner
  • Run/Charge mode to switch between outlet power or battery.


  • 1 hour soldering capacity
  • Recharge time: 20 minutes
  • Energy-efficient switching power supply: 100V to 240V
  • Temperature range: 200°F to 750°F (50°C to 400°C)
  • Heat-up time: 4 seconds
  • RoHS compliant

All-Spec Industries offers a number of Desco Jewel® MagSnap wrist straps, providing increased protection to keep your components safe from accidental ESD damage.

Desco Jewel MagSnap Wrist Strap


MagSnap wrist straps are designed with magnetic clasps to help prevent accidental disconnects. All MagSnaps maintain a 1-5 pound release to allow for a safe breakaway connection to the ground. With the magnetic snap keeping you ESD-safe, you can work with even less worry of an accidental disconnect causing item damage and product failure.



  • Magnetic connection between wrist strap and cord eliminates intermittent failure of traditional snaps
  • Provides a consistent 1-5 pound release for safe breakaway connection without accidental disconnects
  • Works with many wrist strap testers and continuity monitors
  • Medical grade stainless steel clasps eliminate allergic skin reactions for most operators, and prevents bands from slipping
  • Right angled banana plug is designed to prevent wear on its springs, reducing accidental disconnects from the banana jack
  • Coiled cord has passed strain relief tests for over 1 million cycles, 62 times the minimum requirements (per ESD S1.1)
