Press release date: April 1, 2014

GARDEN GROVE, CA – Metcal today announced that it will exhibit in Booth #B-1E25 at NEPCON China 2014, scheduled to take place April 23-25, 2014 at the Shanghai World EXPO Exhibition & Convention Center. The new MX-500 Soldering and Rework System, HCT2-120 Hot Air Pencil and new features on the Scorpion will be demonstrated.

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, Metcal recently launched several new features on the Scorpion Rework System. New features include an Automatic Placement Package capable of 50mm of motorized travel in the Z-axis and a full 360° in ϴ (Theta), and a new force feedback control during the placement process. The Scorpion Rework System also is now available in a Mobile version with a 1080p, high definition, camera system that enables the operator to align and position components accurately before placement.

Now standard on all Scorpion Rework Systems, Metcal has added a new polarized filter feature. New upgrade kits, including a Side-View Camera, Contactless IR Sensor, and Thermal and Airflow Calibration Kits also are available.
