The global launch of the Robotic Soldering System has been announced by Metcal, with patented Connection Validation (CV) technology and a touchscreen graphical user interface to drastically mitigate the risk of solder joint defects and add productivity to the manufacturers’ soldering process.
“The new CV Robotic Soldering System is the latest example of Metcal’s industrial ingenuity,” said Mak Manesh, Global Director, Product Management, for Metcal. “The system combines Metcal’s patented CV technology with a new graphical user interface.”
CV reduces unnecessary dwell time by signalling to the system to move to the next solder joint in the program after a good joint is detected. The Metcal Robotic Soldering System comes with dual cameras, a touchscreen interface and powerful software, enabling easy programming and reduced turnover time.
Importing your Gerber or DXF file, or capturing the image of your printed circuit board, starts the programming process. Control of the system is integrated through the touchscreen interface, enabling users to select your solder joints, control the integrated solder feeder and manage process parameters through a graphical user interface.
