Metcal, a Brand of OK International, today announced that it will showcase industry-leading products in Booth #9-327 at SMT/Hybrid/Packaging, scheduled to take place May 6-8, 2014 in Nuremberg, Germany.

Metcal will highlight the new MX-500. This Soldering and Rework System has been re-imagined, adding features and a new look to a bench top icon. Built upon SmartHeat™ Technology, the new MX-500 assures extremely responsive and highly controlled heating delivering the exact energy needed to ensure a precise and reliable solder connection. Additionally, the MX-500 retains switchable dual port, 40W operation while introducing numerous new features in a new housing.

Also on display will be the HCT2-120 Digital Hot Air Pencil. “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.

Also on display, the modular Scorpion Rework System allows for simultaneous viewing of Printed Circuit Board (PCB) pads and component pads or balls for the accurate placement of BGAs. The Scorpion 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.
