Metcal Is the Premier Sponsor of the Second Annual IPC APEX EXPO Hand Soldering Competition

Jan 18, 2013

 OK International has announced that its Metcal brand is the premier sponsor of the second annual IPC APEX EXPO® Hand Soldering Competition and IPC World Championship, scheduled to take place February 19–21, 2013, at the San Diego Convention Center. In addition to its sponsorship, Metcal / OK International will award a Metcal MX-5200 Soldering System to the world champion (this is in addition to the cash prize awarded by IPC).

Jerry Simmons, Marketing Manager, commented, “OK International / Metcal is pleased to again sponsor the IPC APEX Hand Soldering Competition and to promote high quality soldering standards within the electronics industry. We look forward to presenting the world champion with our brand new MX-5200 Soldering System.”  

During this three-day competition, companies will compete to build a functional electronics assembly in 30 minutes. Assemblies will be judged on soldering in accordance with IPC-A-610E criteria, the speed at which the assembly was produced, and overall electrical functionality of assembly. IPC-A-610E Master Instructors will serve as the judges.

In further support of the competition, OK International will feature the Metcal MX-5200 Soldering System that will be used in the competition in its booth (#735).  Competition participants are welcome to stop by the booth to get familiar with the system beforehand if they are not already.  Experts from the OK International team will be on hand at the booth to provide best practice advice and demonstrations of the equipment.
