Metcal Brings the Scorpion with Side-View Camera to Northern Manufacturing in the UK

Sep 03, 2013

Metcal today announced that it will exhibit in Stand A23 at the Northern Manufacturing & Electronics Exhibition, scheduled to take place October 2-3, 2013 in Manchester, UK. Company representatives will demonstrate the Scorpion Rework System with the new Side-View Camera Upgrade Kit. The addition of the Side-View Camera Upgrade Kit (APR-SRS-UK3) facilitates visibility of reflow during the rework process and provides the operator with an improved method of setting placement height of the vacuum and reflow nozzles.

The upgrade kit features high magnification optics, a CMOS sensor camera with USB 2.0 connection, and picture-in-picture functionality accessed through the Scorpion software, eliminating the need for a second monitor. The double articulated arm with a wide adjustment range provides a robust and versatile camera mount, and attaches directly to the Scorpion Rework System.

The Side-View Camera Upgrade Kit was specially designed for the modular Metcal Scorpion Rework System. The Scorpion allows for simultaneous viewing of Printed Circuit Board (PCB) pads and component pads or balls for the accurate placement of BGAs. Additionally, it can create specifically tailored reflow profiles through Metcal’s unique convection heating technology with nozzle and dual-zone pre-heater in one user-friendly, single platform rework system.

Meet company representatives in Stand A23 at the Northern Manufacturing & Electronics Exhibition for more information about Metcal’s bench tool solutions. Additionally, Northern Manufacturing marks the completion of the company’s global rebranding. The OKi brand that comprises soldering and desoldering, hand-held convection, fume extraction and fluid dispensing tools and equipment is now unified under the Metcal brand name.
