Metcal to Demo CV Soldering System at SMTA Upper Midwest Expo


Reading time ( words)

Metcal plans to exhibit at the SMTA Upper Midwest Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Thursday, June 27, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Minneapolis - Park Place in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Company representatives will demonstrate its Connection Validation (CV) Soldering System with new hand-pieces, AC-STC Tip Cleaner and HCT2-200-11 Hot Air Pencil. 

CV Soldering System

Metcal will show its new 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 hand-pieces are now available with a number of unique tip cartridge geometries. The tip cartridges are available in a variety of temperature series. 

HCT2-200 Digital Hot Air Pencil

Metcal’s new Digital Hot Air Pencil was developed for very small surface mount component and package sizes (1206s and smaller) and low board densities. As component miniaturization continues (e.g., 01005 components), the ergonomics of a pencil become more important to allow a user freedom to access and rework components on the board without affecting adjacent parts. 

AC-STC Solder Tip Cleaner

Metcal’s innovative Solder Tip Cleaner features a replaceable brush system that pulls excess solder away from the tip into a removable collection tray for disposal while removing oxidation from the tip. Solder tips represent a significant portion of the cost of ownership for a solder station, and Metcal’s new Solder Tip Cleaner removes oxidation and extends the life of the solder tip.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
