Metcal announces that it has introduced the new HCT2-120 Digital Hot Air Pencil as the latest addition to its offering of convection rework tools.

The Digital Hot Air Pencil is ideally suited for applications which use smaller components and integrated circuits,” said Gary Stoffer, Global Director of Sales and Marketing.  “The HCT2-120 hand-held convection tool allows users more freedom to access and rework components on the board without affecting adjacent parts.”

The HCT2-120 boasts a 120 watt ceramic heater and dual stage air pump that provides the power and performance needed to deliver the right amount of thermal energy. 

Additionally, two LED displays provide graphical and numerical representation of the desired airflow and temperature.  The Digital Hot Air Pencil also includes a pack of six nozzles, work stand with nozzle plate holder, and a nozzle removal pad.
