Hakko Soldering & Desodering Equipments

Hakko FA 430 is a smoke suction device that removes soldering smoke and fumes in a quick, safe, and an efficient manner. It protects the operator from breathing harmful fumes that might cause headache, dizziness, or eye trouble. This suction device has a powerful suction mechanism that uses ducts and yet it is silent. This device comes with a selectable air volume that allows you to select the amount of air volume that you want to throw out. In addition, this suction device has an automatic filter replacement light that makes your life easy when replacing a filter and ensures optimum performance.


Quiet operation and powerful suction.

Exhaust noise has been reduced without sacrificing suction performance by the addition of a silencer unit to the exhaust outlet to ensure smooth air outflow. A high-performance motor with 1,500 Pa of static pressure provides powerful suction and quiet operation.

It is best to position the duct horizontally.

Notes regarding graph: 

The HAKKO FA-430 features significantly reduced noise level in medium airflow mode despite the fact that suction performance remains almost unchanged compared to the previous model. High airflow mode also provides quieter operation than the previous model.

Catch harmful smoke with freestanding ducts and adjustable air volume to suit your working environment

Is your smoke absorber affected by air conditioning? Are you fed up with having to re-adjust ducts after every line change? The HAKKO FA-430 fume extractor is the answer to your problems.

Airflow adjustment

Three airflow modes are available: High, Medium, and Low. Significantly improve your working environment by using an airflow volume that suits the worksite and the job.

  • Low mode: Not easily affected by the surrounding environment. For use in small, quiet locations. (For when low-noise operation is a priority.)
  • Medium mode: For normal use.
  • High mode: For use in locations that are significantly affected by the surrounding environment. (For when suction performance is a priority.)

What do you mean by "surrounding environment"?

Smoke flows in unexpected directions due to a variety of factors; not just because of the influence of air conditioning. High mode is recommended if your worksite is situated near a doorway, in a spot where people continuously pass by, near the exhaust outlet of a large machine, or in a similar location. It is possible to use low mode in laboratories and other places where these kinds of influences are limited.

Freestanding ducts

Ducts can be bent or lengthened as desired and maintain their shape after adjustment, letting you place them exactly where suction is needed. Say goodbye forever to ducts that are long, heavy, and hard-to-handle.

Lightweight and compact, the HAKKO FA-430 weighs only 7.5 kg. Built-in handles allow the fume extractor to be moved easily, facilitating line changeovers. 

*HAKKO FA-430 weighs 35% less than previous models.

Diagonally mounted duct Duct mounted directly above workpiece Arrow Duct mounted directly behind workpiece

If the duct is mounted at an angle above the workpiece, it is easily affected by air conditioning

If the duct is mounted directly above, it can be difficult to see the workpiece


Duct is mounted on the worktable to provide excellent suction performance

Filter replacement notification function ensures excellent trapping efficiency can be maintained at all times

No matter how sophisticated a fume extractor is, if the filter is not replaced at the correct time, it will not be able to give maximum performance. The HAKKO FA-430 detects the number of fan revolutions and notifies the operator of the appropriate time to replace the filter, guaranteeing a comfortable working environment.
