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.
