GARDEN GROVE, CA – Metcal is pleased to announce that it was awarded a 2015 SMT China Vision Award in the category of Repair Rework for its APR-2000-SCS Scarab Site Cleaning System. The award was presented to the company during an April 21, 2015 ceremony at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition Convention Center during NEPCON China.
