Reading time ( words)

METCAL announced the launch of the new HCT-910 Hot Air Rework System. This hot air system is accurate and intuitive-to-use, with high thermal performance capable of meeting the full spectrum of application requirements needed for production and rework in electronics manufacturing.

The Metcal HCT-910 can generate 900 watts of heat with a maximum temperature of 600°C. This expands the capability of the Metcal HCT-910 beyond standard thermal demand applications to higher thermal demanding applications in military, defense, and aerospace, using highly metalized circuit boards.

The Metcal HCT-910 digital interface is intuitive and easy to use.  The system incorporates a novel control method making it easy to quickly adjust the temperature and airflow rates without looking away from the application.  In addition, a multi-olor status light on the hand-piece is a visual cue to the operator regarding the “current status” of the unit. 

“The Metcal HCT-910 improves the user experience significantly by adding features such as ‘On-the-fly’ manual control which utilizes a single push-button knob to adjust, control, and quickly toggle between temperature and airflow. This intuitive design, in combination with accurate temperature, and the performance of the 900-watt heater, will improve throughput while controlling a tight quality process,” said Curtis Yamauchi, Product Manager of Metcal.

The Metcal HCT-910 can be configured for any worldwide standard voltage and power outlets.  It also offers an intuitive user interface, multiple language settings, and a USB port to update software and power peripherals such as fans, lights, cameras, or even a cell phone.

The complete system for each model includes the hot air tool, power cord, and hand-piece cradle to support a variety of soldering and rework applications.
