Metcal Kicks Off 2018 with Strong Presence at MD&M West


Reading time ( words)

Metcal will showcase a range of its leading technologies in Booth 435 at the MD&M West 2018 exhibition, scheduled to take place February 6-8 at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. The company will show the CV-5210 Connection Validation (CV) Soldering System with new software and handpieces, the HCT2-200 Digital Hot Air Pencil, the new high thermal demand (HTD) 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 HCT2-200 Digital Hot Air Pencil was developed for very small surface mount component and package sizes (1206s and smaller) and low board densities.

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. The new Solder Tip Cleaner removes oxidation and extends the life of the solder tip. By placing the tip into the opening, the cleaner senses the tip and automatically activates, saving the operator time.
