Metcal today announced plans to exhibit in Booth #524 at MD&M West, scheduled to take place Feb. 10-12, 2015 at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. The award-winning Scorpion Rework System will be on display, along with the new Solder Ball Replacement Kit and MX-HPDC dual cartridge hand-piece.
Metcal’s Scorpion Rework System with Automatic Placement Package (APR-1200A-SRS-MOB) is capable of 50mm of motorized travel in the Z-axis and a full 360° in ϴ (Theta). The system offers fine motor control in the Z-axis and ϴ during alignment of the component to the pad. The SmartPlace Technology vision system features a dual, full color HD camera with a selectable camera view. It also provides diffused LED lighting for shadow-free component alignment.
Reworking small chip components such as 01005, 0201, 0402 and 0602s can be difficult and require specialized tools. Metcal has developed a technique and identified a selection of tools that enable the operator to rework these small components with repeatability and consistency. Metcal will display the new solder ball placement kit to meet these challenging applications.
The success of conduction soldering depends upon the availability and controlled flow of thermal energy into the connection during two critical phases – flux activation and intermetallic bond formation. To meet these higher thermal demands, Metcal will display the new dual cartridge hand-piece and work stand along with a series of five new dual-shaft cartridge geometries.
Since 1982, Metcal has been a recognized worldwide leader in the electronics assembly marketplace. As part of OK International, Metcal’s industry-leading position addressing advanced technology in conduction soldering and rework/repair, has and will continue to broaden to a full electronics bench tool single-source solution. Metcal product lines currently include: hand soldering and desoldering, convection rework products, fume extraction and fluid dispensing tools. For more information, visit www.metcal.com.
