Metcal has announced plans to exhibit in Booth 816 at SMTA International, scheduled to take place 29th - 30th September, 2015 at the Donald Stephens Convention Centre in Illinois, USA. The Metcal Scarab Site Cleaning System (APR-2000-SCS) will be on display, along with the MX-5200 Soldering & Rework System and HCT2-120 Hot Air Pencil.
The Scarab ensures accurate and repeatable cleaning of the component pad in one user-friendly system. It redefines performance and addresses the technical demands presented by component manufacturers today. Additionally, the Scarab addresses the industry needs with an automated system capable of cleaning components pads without contact.
The MX-5200 features a dual-simultaneous use option, meaning that two hand-pieces can work from one power supply at the same time. The dynamic option enables the two hand-pieces to share 80W output power based on demand, adding even more application flexibility and speed. Four different hand-pieces and a comprehensive range of soldering and rework cartridges support the MX-5200 series simultaneous dual operation. These include the Metcal Advanced Hand-Piece for SMD rework, a Metcal Ultra-Fine Hand-Piece for fine access, a Precision Tweezer capable of removing a range of components from 0201 chips to 28mm SOICs and a Desoldering Gun for safely removing through-hole components.
Metcal’s HCT2-120 Hot Air Pencil is suited for applications that use smaller components and integrated circuits. As component miniaturisation 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 120W ceramic heater and dual stage air pump, digital airflow and temperature controls, fast response and performance, standby mode and universal power supply.
