Metcal’s Solder Wire Feeder adds control and convenience to the soldering process. With digital controls, high performance, and its ability to handle multiple solder wire diameters, it provides repeatability and functionality to any hand soldering process. The Solder Wire Feeder pairs with Metcal’s MX-5200 series or MX-500 Soldering and Rework Stations.
Christopher Larocca describes Connection Validation (CV), the latest Metcal innovation in hand soldering. CV provides close loop feedback to the operator via a LED ring integral to the hand-piece that detects successful intermetallic compound (IMC) formation - resulting in more reliable solder joints.
