Metcal today announced plans to exhibit in Booth B-1G26 at NEPCON China 2015, scheduled to take place April 21-23, 2015 at the Shanghai World EXPO Exhibition & Convention Center. The new Metcal Scarab Site Cleaning System (APR-2000-SCS) will be displayed for the first time in Asia, along with the new Solder Ball Replacement Kit and MX-HPDC dual cartridge hand-piece.

The Scarab ensures accurate and repeatable cleaning of the component pad in one user-friendly system. It redefines performance and addresses the technical demands presented by component manufacturers today. Additionally, the Scarab addresses the industry needs with an automated system capable of cleaning components pads without contact.

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.
