Metcal Launches Complete Set of Hand-pieces for Connection Validation Rework Systems


Reading time ( words)

Metcal today announced the release of seven new hand-pieces to complement the Connection Validation (CV) soldering system. These ergonomic hand-pieces transform the CV system into a complete soldering solution for a wide variety of applications.

Metcal’s CV soldering system was released with great fanfare last year, winning a number of industry awards for its innovative approach to hand soldering. The system evaluates the quality of the solder joint and provides closed-loop feedback to the operator. This systemic and objective approach delivers repeatability and a measurable standard to the soldering process.

When the CV soldering system was released, it came with Metcal’s advanced CV hand-piece. Hundreds of solder tip cartridges were available for most standard soldering applications with the advanced hand-piece. Now, with the release of these seven new hand-pieces, the CV soldering rework system is the solution for even the most challenging soldering applications. The new hand-pieces include:

  • Ultrafine Hand-piece: For use on delicate components
  • Ultrafine Tweezer Hand-piece: For more versatility on micro-components, great for working under a microscope
  • Precision Tweezer Hand-piece: Turns CV into a rework system for applications requiring the removal of surface mount components from 1mm x 1mm and up
  • Desolder Hand-piece: For use on through-hole components
  • High Thermal Demand Hand-piece: Provides a boost in performance by effectively delivering thermal energy to the most demanding loads
  • Solder Wire Feeder Hand-pieces: Two versions that work with the solder wire feeder – an advanced hand-piece and a high thermal demand version

All of the new hand-pieces are now available with a number of unique tip cartridge geometries. The tip cartridges are available in a variety of temperature series to satisfy the most challenging applications. Metcal’s global distribution network has access to these and all Metcal products.
