New Digital Hot Air Pencil and Solder Tip Cleaner at SMTA New England

Connection Validation (CV) Soldering System.

Connection Validation (CV) Soldering System.

Metcal announces plans to exhibit at the SMTA New England Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Thursday, November 16, 2017 at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA. The company will show its Connection Validation (CV) Soldering System with new CV Monitoring Software, and its brand new HCT2-200 Digital Hot Air Pencil and AC-STC Solder Tip Cleaner.

The CV Soldering System 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.

The HCT2-200 Digital Hot Air Pencil was developed for very small surface mount component and package sizes (1206s and smaller) and low board densities. As component miniaturization continues (e.g. 01005 components), the ergonomics of a pencil become more important to allow a user freedom to access and rework components on the board without affecting adjacent parts.

The AC-STC Solder Tip Cleaner features a replaceable brush system that pulls excess solder away from the tip into a removable collection tray for disposal while removing oxidation from the tip. Solder tips represent a significant portion of the cost of ownership for a solder station, and Metcal’s new Solder Tip Cleaner removes oxidation and extends the life of the solder tip. By placing the tip into the opening, the AC-STC Solder Tip Cleaner senses the tip and automatically activates, saving the operator time.
