Metcal Announces Global Launch of Solder Wire Feeder System


Reading time ( words)

Metcal has announced the global launch of its Solder Wire Feeder System, which speeds up the soldering process and increases efficiency by adding control and convenience to the line.

The Solder Wire Feeder pairs with Metcal's SmartHeat MX-5200 or MX-500 Soldering and Rework Systems. The digital controls, along with the system's high performance and ability to handle multiple diameters, provides repeatability and functionality.

The digital controls feature multiple modes of operation, including forward feed, retraction, delay and speed, all programmable parameters in either the automatic, forward, or the backward mode of operation. Additionally, the large LCD screen displays program parameters and a cycle counter with the selectable unit of measure, millimetres or inches.

With internal program storage, the Solder Wire Feeder stores 30 programs, allowing the operator to select the right program for each application. Password protection prevents unintended changes to stored programs, and multiple solder diameters make the system compatible with solder diameters from 0.3mm to 1.27mm.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
