Metcal announces plans to exhibit with its distributor, Solder Connection (Stand E60), at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics, scheduled to take place Feb. 6-8, 2018 at FIVE in the UK. The company will show its CV-5210 Connection Validation (CV) Soldering System with new software, High Thermal Demand hand-piece and the 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 recently released the CV Monitoring Software to improve solder process traceability and create a performance baseline to quickly analyze soldering performance, identify solder condition changes, and allow changes to be made to the process.

The new High Thermal Demand (HTD) solution, comprised of a new handpiece 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.

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.
