Metcal Introduces New CV-500 Connection Validation™ Soldering System


Metcal’s new CV-500 soldering system is perfect for surface mount device (SMD) touch-up and small component rework

Metcal, a global leader in bench tools solutions providing the optimum balance of reliability and performance for the electronics production assembly, has announced the launch of its new CV-500 Connection Validation™ soldering system. The new soldering system is the companion station to the company’s CV-5210 CV soldering system. The new CV-500 soldering system is incorporated with all the connection validation technology into a compact and economical housing.

The thickness of intermetallic compound plays a critical role in the formation of a solder joint. A patented technology, connection validation (CV) is used to gauge the quality of a solder joint by calculating the formation of intermetallic compound and offers closed loop feedback to the operator.
