Metcal Is a Premier Sponsor of the IPC APEX EXPO Hand Soldering World Championship

Jan 27, 2015

Metcal has announced that it is a premier sponsor of the fourth annual IPC APEX EXPO® Hand Soldering World Championship, scheduled to take place Feb. 26, 2015 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA.  In addition to its sponsorship, Metcal will award a Metcal MX-5200 Soldering System to the world champion (this is in addition to the cash prize awarded by IPC).

Jerry Simmons, Marketing Manager, commented, “Metcal is pleased to again sponsor the IPC APEX Hand Soldering Competition and to promote high quality soldering standards within the electronics industry. We look forward to presenting the world champion with our brand new MX-5200 Soldering System.”  

During this competition, champions from around the world will compete to build a functional electronic assembly in 30 minutes. Assemblies will be judged on soldering in accordance with IPC-A-610E criteria, the speed at which the assembly was produced, and overall electrical functionality of assembly. IPC-A-610E Master Instructors will serve as the judges.

In further support of the competition, Metcal will feature the MX-5200 Soldering System that will be used in the competition in its booth (#627).  Competition participants are welcome to stop by the booth to get familiar with the system beforehand if they are not already.  Experts from the Metcal team will be available at the booth to provide best practice advice and demonstrations of the equipment.
