High Quality Hand Soldering Tools from Metcal at SMTA Ohio

Jun 26, 2018

Metcal today announced plans to exhibit at the SMTA Ohio Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Thursday, July 12, 2018 at the Embassy Suites Cleveland Rockside in Cleveland. The company will demonstrate its Connection Validation (CV) Soldering System with new hand-pieces, Digital Hot Air Pencil and Solder Tip Cleaner.

CV Soldering System

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. Metcal will introduce the latest CV system accessories at the show, a full set of hand-pieces including tweezers, desolder and high thermal demand that will transform the CV-5200 soldering system into a complete rework solution. Additionally, Metcal has 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.

HCT2-200 Digital Hot Air Pencil

Metcal’s new 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.

AC-STC Solder Tip Cleaner

Metcal’s innovative 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.
