Product Information

Reliable digital technology by HAKKO – Introducing the HAKKO FX-888D

Excellent thermal recovery

Heater output has been increased by 30% compared to that of the conventional models HAKKO 936·937. Also FX-888D delivers excellent thermal recovery by using T18 series tips for their terrific heat conductivity.

This allows soldering at a lower set temperature and reducing the thermal impact on components as well as tip oxidation that can shorten tip life.

  • Thermal recovery graph
    Rise time to 350°C is 20 seconds faster and tip temperature drop is reduced during continuous work.
  • HAKKO FX-888D performance comparison graph with conventional stations
    Able to shorten the time required for the same work and improve work efficiency significantly.

Designed to be User-Friendly

  • Small footprint
    Compact station body requires a space of only 100 (W) x 120 (D) mm. What’s more, points that come into contact with the floor are positioned as close to the outer edge of the body as possible to improve stability and make the station difficult to fall over.
  • Simple and easy operation
    With only two operation buttons of UP and ENTER in the center, operation is simple and easy. Even if you’re not familiar with operation of machines, you can operate it without difficulty.
  • Iron holder with full of functions
    An iron holder of the same color of a soldering station comes as a set. The highly functional iron holder not only improves ease of use, but also brings a sense of visual consistency to the work environment.

Strict temperature management

  • Digital display
    The FX-888D’s digital display makes it easy to check the set temperature at a glance.
  • Password function
    Settings can be locked using a password to prevent them from being changed unexpectedly. Of course, it is possible to restrict all setting changes or prevent users from switching to particular modes. It allows you to choose a style of usage best suited for your worksite.
  • Preset mode
    This feature is very convenient when you want to change the set temperature to suit a particular workpiece, component, or tip shape. Simply select the desired temperature from a selection of preset temperatures registered in advance. (Up to 5 preset temperatures can be registered.) Preset mode can save your trouble and improve workability.
  • Adjustment mode
  • Temperature adjustment* is an essential part of any strict quality control system. With adjustment mode, what used to be a troublesome procedure is now as simple as entering the measured tip temperature to FX-888D.

*Adjust the tip temperature to match the set temperature in case that there is a difference between those temperatures due to tip shape, heater replacement, or other factors.

Q & A

Q: Does the Hakko FX888D-23BY come with everything I need to get started?  I want to start soldering now.
A: Yes, the Hakko FX888D-23BY is ready to use, right out of the box.  It includes the main control unit, as well as the soldering iron, tip, and the iron holder.  The iron holder also has space for the included sponge and cleaning wire.

Q: Does the FX888D-23BY replace the Hakko 936-12?
A: Yes this is the replacement unit.  The biggest differences are the styling is updated from the black units to the blue and yellow units.  The new unit is also digital while the old   unit was analog.

Q: Is the FX888D 220V compatible? 
A:  The Hakko FX888D is 120V only.  If you plan on using it overseas you will need a 120V to 220V inverter.  These are usually pretty inexpensive to get locally.

Q: I'm looking at buying the Hakko FX888D-23BY soldering iron and I need to get tips to go with it. It says on the page that it uses the T-18 series tips. All the tips that I have found say that they are compatible with FX 88801 irons.... will these tips work for this specific iron?
A:  Yes the FX888D station comes with the FX-88801 iron.  These tips are for use with this station.

Q:  What makes this soldering station better than other brands?
A:  The biggest advantage this unit has is its thermal response.  This is due to its ceramic heating core.  It is far superior to the traditional wire wound heating core.  Remember a watt is not just a watt.  These units are more efficient and have better thermal responses than other units. 

Q:  I would like to get an affordable smoke absorber to use for when I am soldering.  Does such a thing exist?
A:  Hakko makes a great smoke absorber that is only $64.32.  You can see it by clicking here.  You just place it on your bench, and smoke is sucked right into the unit.
