Model # 3198E-550

550 Watt Heavy-Duty Ergo Iron

Product Overview
Reaching a maximum tip temperature of 1,000°F, the American Beauty 550 Watt Ergo Iron (Model 3198E-550) is an industrial-duty soldering iron especially designed for professionals who depend on soldering for their livelihoods. Using a traditional stick-style soldering iron frequently causes wrist stress as the soldering iron has to be held at an awkward angle. The nearly 90 degree angle of the ergo iron allows the operator to use the soldering iron from a comfortable position, enabling them to focus on their work instead of their discomfort.

The near 90 degree angle in the soldering iron casing allows the user to operate the iron from an ergonomically comfortable position, reducing tension in the hand and wrist.

Ni-Chrome Compression Wound Heating Elements are proven to be the most reliable heating element for maintaining soldering temperature in production environments.

Paragon Iron-Clad Lead-Free Soldering Iron Tips consistently outperform and outlast ordinary soldering iron tips many times over. Plug-style tip design provides for superior heat transfer and easy cleaning.

Hardwood handle provides superior thermal and electrical insulating properties and durability. Modular construction allows for easy replacement of consumable parts allowing for tools to last for generations.
