Metcal introduces the next big step in process control

Introduced at IPC APEX 2017, Metcal's exciting patented technology was met enthusiastically by contract manufacturers and electronics assembly leaders worldwide. 

  • Improve Quality & Mitigates Risk - Reduces solder joint defects by validating the intermetallic compound (IMC) formation in a soldered joint.

  • Enhance Process Control - The LED light ring integrated in the hand piece notifies the operator of a successful solder joint - complementing the visual industry inspection standard - adding repeatability and a measurable standard to the soldering process.

  • Improve Compliance - Chip-in-Cartridge technology precisely calculates and displays tip temperature on a large color display, improving audit compliance.

  • Future-Proof Investment -  Communication port provides access to process traceability data and easy firmware upgrades.

New CV Monitor software collects vital process information!

Improve your solder process traceability and create a performance baseline using CV's intelligent cartridges plus CV-5000 Monitor software. Using our Connection Validation patented technology, CV Monitor software allows you to capture solder process information over time for each joint when attached to the communication port. You'll get: 

  • Intermetallic Compound Formation (IMC Formation)*
  • Power demand 
  • Tip temperature 
  • Solder time

Now that you have a baseline, you can quickly analyze your soldering performance, identify changes in your solder conditions, and make changes to your process.

Download the free CV-5000 Monitor software and start monitoring your process.
