OK International Debuts Metcal’s MX-5200 Dual Simultaneous Rework Series

Nov 19, 2012



 OK International today announced the launch of the new Metcal MX-5200 Soldering, Desoldering and Rework Series, offering the same increased productivity and process control as the MX-5000 Series, now with dual-simultaneous ports.

The MX-5200 now 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 80 watts output power based on demand, adding even more application flexibility and speed.

Supporting the MX-5200 Series simultaneous dual operation are four different hand-pieces and a comprehensive range of soldering and rework cartridges.  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 28 mm SOICs, and a Desoldering Gun for safely removing through-hole components.

The MX-5200 offers significant new capability to manufacturers looking for both power and flexibility,” commented Gary Stoffer, OK International’s Director of Global Marketing.  “The MX-5200, built upon SmartHeat™ Technology, ensures extremely responsive and highly controlled heating, delivering the exact energy needed to ensure a precise and reliable solder connection.  We are excited about the MX-5200 and additionally look forward to further product introductions in the coming year.”
