Metcal to show MX-5200 with dual simultaneous use option at SMTA LA/OC

Metcal announced plans to exhibit at the SMTA LA/Orange County Expo, scheduled to take place Thursday, Nov. 3, 2016 at The Grand Event Center in Long Beach, CA. Company representatives will showcase the Metcal MX-5200 Soldering System and Solder Wire Feeder.

metcal-1The MX-5200 Soldering, Rework and Desoldering series features a dual-simultaneous use option, meaning that two hand-pieces can work from one power supply at the same time. The dynamic option enables the two hand-pieces to share 80 watts output power based on demand, adding even more application flexibility and speed. Four different hand-pieces and a comprehensive range of soldering and rework cartridges support the MX-5200 Series simultaneous dual operation. These include the Metcal Advanced™ Hand-Piece for SMD rework, a Metcal Ultra-Fine™ Hand-Piece for fine access, a Precision Tweezer capable of removing a range of components from 0201 chips to 28mm SOICs, and a Desoldering Gun for safely removing through-hole components.

metcal-2Metcal recently introduced the Solder Wire Feeder that adds a new level of control and convenience to the soldering process. Designed to integrate easily with Metcal’s MX-5200 or MX-500 series solder systems, the Solder Wire Feeder increases soldering speed while it eliminates wasteful tangles and unspooling.

Additionally, Metcal’s updated MX-500 Soldering and Rework System with SmartHeat® Technology and HCT2-120 Hot Air Pencil will be on display at the show. For more information about any of Metcal’s bench tool solutions, visit
