Metcal Rolls Out New Rework Equipment for Productronica
Metcal's updated MX-500 Soldering and Rework System builds on the features that make it an icon in the industry while adding features and updating its appearance with an exciting new look. The system utilizes SmartHeat® Technology wherein each cartridge is equipped with a self-regulating heater that 'senses' its own temperature and closely maintains its pre-set idle temperature for the life of the heater-tip. The MX-500 retains dual port, switchable 40W operation in a new housing, while introducing numerous new features including: integrated power indication meter, user programmable PowerSave mode, ground fault interrupt, universal power supply and compatibility with existing MX-5200 products.
Metcal's HCT2-120 Hot Air Pencil is a new addition to its offering of convection rework tools. The hot air pencil, a handheld convection tool, is ideally suited for applications that use smaller components and integrated circuits. As component miniaturization continues, the ergonomics of a pencil allow a user more freedom to access and rework components on the board, without affecting adjacent parts. The HCT2-120 features a 120 watt ceramic heater and dual stage air pump, digital airflow and temperature controls, fast response and performance, standby mode and universal power supply.
Also on display, the Side-View Camera Upgrade Kit (APR-SRS-UK3) was specially designed for the modular Metcal Scorpion Rework System. It facilitates visibility of reflow during the rework process and provides the operator with an improved method of setting placement height of the vacuum and reflow nozzles. The upgrade kit features high magnification optics, a CMOS sensor camera with USB 2.0 connection, and picture-in-picture functionality accessed through the Scorpion software, eliminating the need for a second monitor.
