Metcal Soldering, Rework Tech at IPC APEX EXPO 2019


Reading time ( words)

Metcal plans to exhibit at the 2019 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place January 29-31, 2019 at the San Diego Convention Center. The company will demonstrate its connection validation (CV) Robotic Soldering System, CV Soldering System with new hand-pieces, CV-500 Soldering System and VFX-1000H Volume Fume Extraction System in booth #1314. 

CV Robotic Soldering System

Robotic soldering is becoming more commonplace as manufacturers look to reduce risk and increase productivity. Metcal’s new CV Robotic Soldering System addresses these needs by combining its patented CV technology with a new Smart Interface System. CV reduces unnecessary dwell time by signalling to the system to move to the next solder joint in the program after a good joint is formed. The Smart Interface System simplifies the programming process by integrating system controls through an easy to use interface. 

CV Soldering System

Metcal will introduce the latest CV hand-pieces and assorted cartridges that transform the CV-5200 soldering system into the solution for even the most challenging soldering applications. 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. 

CV-500 Soldering System

The CV-500 soldering system excels at SMD touch-up and small component rework using the Ultrafine hand-piece and Ultrafine tweezer hand-piece(both sold separately). The CV-500 system also features Smartheart™ power on demand technology, a 2.8" color touchscreen with bold graphics, an integrated net power meter with optional tip temperature display and much more.

The CV-500 is compatible with most hand-pieces and upgrade kits for the CV soldering system. These ergonomic hand-pieces transform the CV system into a complete soldering solution for a wide variety of applications.

VFX-1000H Volume Fume Extraction System

The volume fume extraction system with HEPA filter offers a deep pleat pre-filter, a filter change/ system fail signal, and long life filters with low replacement costs. Additional features include built-in silencing, remote speed control, a remote start/stop interface and universal voltage.
