SHENZHEN, PRC. ― OK International will demonstrate the new Metcal MX-5200 and Scorpion with Side-View Camera in Stand A-1K25 at NEPCON South China 2013, scheduled to take place August 27-29, 2013 at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center in China.
The MX-5200 now 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.
Supporting the MX-5200 Series simultaneous dual operation are four different hand-pieces and a comprehensive range of soldering and rework cartridges. .
Also on display, the modular Metcal Scorpion Rework System allows for simultaneous viewing of Printed Circuit Board (PCB) pads and component pads or balls for the accurate placement of BGAs. The Scorpion can create specifically tailored reflow profiles through OK International’s unique convection heating technology with nozzle and dual-zone pre-heater in one user-friendly, single platform rework system.
The Scorpion will be displayed with the new Side-View Camera Upgrade Kit (APR-SRS-UK3). The kit features high magnification optics, a CMOS sensor camera with USB 2.0 connection, and picture-in-picture functionality accessed through the Scorpion software, eliminating the need for a second monitor. The double articulated arm with a wide adjustment range provides a robust and versatile camera mount, and attaches directly to the Scorpion Rework System.
