Press release date: March 26, 2014

GARDEN GROVE, CA – Metcal today announced that it has been awarded a 2014 NPI Award in the category of Rework & Repair Tools for its HCT2-120 Hot Air Pencil. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, March 25, 2014 ceremony that took place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center during the IPC APEX EXPO.

"We are thrilled that the product has been recognized by this award," commented Gary Stoffer, Director of Global Sales and Marketing. "We have seen a wonderful response to the hot-air pencil, as users have applauded the ergonomics as well as its ability to easily address miniature components."

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.
