Metcal Brings New Soldering and Rework Technologies to SMTA Guadalajara


Reading time ( words)

Metcal plans to exhibit in Booth #93 at the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place November 14-15, 2018 at the Expo Guadalajara. The company will demonstrate its connection validation (CV) soldering system with new hand-pieces, solder wire feeder, digital hot air pencil, and solder tip cleaner.

CV Soldering System

Metcal will introduce the latest CV hand-pieces and assorted cartridges that transform the CV-5200 soldering system into the solution for even the most challenging soldering applications. All of the new hand-pieces are now available with a number of unique tip cartridge geometries. The tip cartridges are available in a variety of temperature series to satisfy the most challenging applications.

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.

Solder Wire Feeder

The Solder Wire Feeder pairs with the MX series soldering and rework systems, speeding up the soldering process and increasing line efficiency by placing more control and convenience in the hands of the operator.

Tips to Improve Soldering Tip Life and Reduce Cost

10/10/2018 | Thermaltronics
Whether in production, or repair and rework, the cost of soldering iron tips can be easily overlooked, but with today’s requirement for higher temperatures in lead-free solder applications, the consumption of tips has dramatically increased. This fact, combined with changes in tip design to meet the higher thermal load requirements, has also resulted in escalating tip costs, making tip care a high priority.

What SMT Component Shortages Mean for Design and Manufacturing Engineers
