CYPRESS, CA ― September 2018 ― Metcal announced plans to exhibit at SMTA International, scheduled to take place Oct. 16-17, 2018 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. The company will demonstrate its Connection Validation (CV) Soldering System with new hand-pieces, MX-5270 system with solder wire feeder, Digital Hot Air Pencil, Solder Tip Cleaner and VFX-1000H Volume Fume Extraction System in Booth #330.
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.
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.
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.
The volume fume extraction system with HEPA filter offers a deep pleat pre-filter, a filter change/ system fail signal, and long life filters with low replacement costs. Additional features include built-in silencing, remote speed control, a remote start/stop interface and universal voltage.
