Metcal has announced that it will exhibit in Hall 7, Stand 109 with distributor SmartTec at the upcoming SMT/Hybrid/Packaging show, scheduled to take place April 26-28, 2016 at the Messe in Nuremberg, Germany. Metcal’s Scarab Site Cleaning System (APR-2000-SCS) will be on display, along with the Scorpion Rework System, the MX-5200 Soldering & Rework System, and the soon-to-be-launched Solder Wire Feeder.

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.

The Scorpion System redefines precision and addresses the technical demands presented by component manufacturers today. Features include a placement package capable of 50mm of motorized travel in the Z-axis and a full 360° in ϴ (Theta). The placement package offers fine motor control in the Z-axis and ϴ during alignment of the component to the pad. Also included is 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 MX-5200 features a dual-simultaneous use option, meaning that two hand-pieces can work from one power supply at the same time. The dynamic option enables the two hand-pieces to share 80 watts output power based on demand, adding even more application flexibility and speed.  Four different hand-pieces and a comprehensive range of soldering and rework cartridges support the MX-5200 Series simultaneous dual operation. These include the Metcal Advanced™Hand-Piece for SMD rework, a Metcal Ultra-Fine™ Hand-Piece for fine access, a Precision Tweezer capable of removing a range of components from 0201 chips to 28mm SOICs, and a Desoldering Gun for safely removing through-hole components.

The USF-1000 Solder Wire Feeder System adds control and convenience to the soldering process. The digital controls, high performance, and its ability to handle multiple solder diameters provide repeatability and functionality to the process. The USF-1000 pairs with the Metcal MX-5200 or MX-500 Soldering and Rework Systems..


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.
