Metcal today announced that it will introduce several new features for the Scorpion Rework System during the IPC APEX EXPO. The Scorpion System redefines precision and addresses the technical demands presented by component manufacturers today.

Metcal will unveil brand new features for the Scorpion Rework System, including an Automatic Placement Package capable of 50mm of motorized travel in the Z-axis and a full 360° in ϴ (Theta). The Automatic Placement Package offers fine motor control in the Z-axis and ϴ during alignment of the component to the pad. The company also will introduce a new force feedback control during the placement process, enabling the unit to accurately pick and place components without disturbing the component or solder.

The Scorpion Rework System also is now available in a Mobile version with a 1080p, high definition, camera system that enables the operator to align and position components accurately before placement. This version is ideal for use with smaller packages commonly used in mobile devices up to 25mm x 25mm. New digital controls also have been implemented to control the light levels of both the top and bottom LED lighting modules.

Now standard on all Scorpion Rework Systems, Metcal has added a new polarized filter feature. New upgrade kits, including a Side-View Camera, Contactless IR Sensor, and Thermal and Airflow Calibration Kits also are available.

To learn more about the new features on the Scorpion, meet with company representatives in Booth # 2225 at the IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place March 25-27, 2014 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
