New Metcal HTD Tips & Hand-piece Increase Throughput and Save Money

Jul 19, 2017

High Thermal Demand (HTD) Solution for the MX-5200 Series.

High Thermal Demand (HTD) Solution for the MX-5200 Series.

Metcal is pleased to introduce the new High Thermal Demand (HTD) Solution for the MX-5200 Series. The HTD hand-piece and tips transform an MX-5000 or MX-5200 series into a powerhouse for applications with high thermal loads – such as dense boards – without damaging sensitive components.

Metcal’s HTD solution delivers more thermal energy, thus efficiently minimizing the risk of component or printed circuit board damage associated with leaving a soldering iron tip on the solder joint for extended periods. The system provides a boost in performance by more effectively delivering thermal energy to the most demanding loads.

The HTD Solution can meet the most demanding requirements. It reduces the risk of prolonged soldering contact and improves time to manufacture while maintaining the comfort of the sleek and ergonomic hand-piece that you're used to.  Its slimmer tips allow you to meet high thermal demand needs in a smaller form factor – getting the tip into areas industrial soldering irons cannot reach.


Since 1982, Metcal has been the recognized technology innovator in the OEM and global electronics assembly marketplace for the automotive, aerospace, medical devices and military sectors. Metcal provides advanced technology products across hand soldering, convection rework, fume extraction, and fluid dispensing applications. Its products continue to set the standard for performance, reliability, flexibility, and ROI, and are available from authorized distributors in North America and around the world.
