The Hot Air Pen is purpose designed and manufactured by Willard to provide a highly controllable source of heat over a small treatment area without contact on the object, which minimises the risk of dislodgement of poorly adhered particles.
The highly controllable source of heat is designed to be directed over a small treatment area which can be closely observed and managed by the user. The Hot Air Pen quickly and safely heats the surface with point accuracy and without contact on the object. Combined with controlled, low air flow settings, this minimises the risk of dislodgement of poorly adhered particles.
The Willard Hot Air Pen is supplied as a set complete with it’s own bespoke Controller, a lightweight balanced pen with wooden handle, 3 interchangeable nozzles and a purpose made stand for the hand piece.
The 3 interchangeable nozzles come in sizes 2mm, 3mm, and a 16mm x 1mm fan shape.
The hand piece (pen) connects to the bespoke control unit via a kink-resistant two metre (78 inch) insulated silicon flex, which provides independent control of temperature and air flow through the pen. A Conversion Chart supplied (see images) indicates the air temperature at the nozzle exit where it is measured by a sensor. The reduced temperature at the work surface is then calculated based on a specific distance.
The front panel houses the air flow regulator and temperature control together with an on/off switch and indicator lamp. The air flow is variable within the maximum and minimum settings and the temperature is variable also, ranging from ambient to 180ºC (356ºF). The indicator light signals when the heating element is on.
On the rear panel of the controller is a socket for the optional Willard Temperature Monitor as well as access to the input and output fuses.

NB.This Controller is specific to the Hot Air Pen, as it regulates the temperature & Air Flow within the pen, it is therefore not interchangeable with the Standard or Special control units for use with Heated Spatulas & Irons, the Controller can be factory set, as standard to operate on either, 110V / 120V or 220v / 240v.
