REFLO Air is a stylish, portable reflow machine that lets creators and makers easily, quickly, and professionally prototype circuits. Use it for your IoT device, wearable, small robot, or whatever project you’re working on.

One-touch Operation

The heater system is built in a compact enclosure and mounted so that you can focus on soldering of small parts without manually operating the heater module. The soldering process has been simplified by enabling one-touch settings such as preheating and reflow. You can use the operation panel to change the temperature, adjust the fan speed, and even the LED brightness on the display.

Designed for Safe, Easy Use

Soldering can be messy, hard to do well, and if done poorly, the joints will be weak. REFLO Air includes a safeguard on the heater module - a timer that limits continuous operation. That way, safe operation is possible even for beginners. The LED lighting the board and the magnifying glass function of the mobile app make it easy to monitor the soldering process. REFLO Air’s low power consumption and small size make it usable in many different environments.
