Metcal announces plans to exhibit in Hall A2, Stand 135 at productronica 2017, scheduled to take place Nov. 14 – 17, 2017 at the Messe München in Germany. Metcal has been making a strategic move in industrial ingenuity by introducing multiple new products in 2017. The company will show its brand new Connection Validation (CV) Selective Soldering System at the show for the first time, along with a range of soldering tools.

CV Soldering System:

CV is Metcal’s latest patented technological innovation that is reinventing hand soldering! Built on the company’s SmartHeat™ technology, used in all Metcal soldering systems, CV evaluates the quality of the solder joint by calculating the intermetallic compound formation and providing closed-loop feedback to the operator, mitigating risk in the process. Additionally, Metcal just released the CV Monitoring Software that will improve your solder process traceability and create a performance baseline to quickly analyze your soldering performance, identify changes in your solder conditions, and allow you to make changes to your process.

Connection Validation Selective Soldering System

Robotic soldering is becoming more commonplace as manufacturers look to reduce risk and increase productivity. Metcal’s new CV Selective Soldering System addresses these needs by combining its patented CV technology and a new Smart Interface System. CV reduces unnecessary dwell time by signalling to the system to move to the next solder joint in the program after a good joint is formed. The Smart Interface System simplifies the programming process by integrating system controls through an easy to use interface. The Connection Validation Selective Soldering System is the newest example of Metcal’s Industrial Ingenuity

Hot Air Pencil

The HCT2 series of Digital Hot Air Pencils have always included an array of nozzle sizes for precision control. The new HCT2-200’s improved thermal performance allows the user to target a larger variety of components. New features include a 200-Watt ceramic heater and dual stage air pump, a new replaceable hand-piece, and optional bent nozzles for easier access and use under a microscope.

High Thermal Demand

The new High Thermal Demand (HTD) solution, comprised of a new hand-piece and a selection of thermal efficient cartridges, is designed for use with Metcal’s MX line of power supplies. HTD transforms a Metcal MX-series soldering station into a powerhouse for applications with high thermal loads, such as dense boards, without damaging sensitive components.

Solder Tip Cleaner

Metcal’s innovative new Solder Tip Cleaner removes oxidation and extends the tip life of your soldering tip. This easy-to-use cleaner senses the tip when inserted into the unit and activates automatically, saving the operator time.
