Metcal HTD Tips Help Avoid Component and PCB Damage


Reading time ( words)

Metcal has launched 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.
