Metcal Announces Patent Pending Software Upgrades to The GT Series Soldering Systems.

CYPRESS, CA ― May 21, 2021 ― METCAL™, a leader in benchtop soldering systems, announces patent pending software updates for their newly launched GT90 and GT120 Soldering Systems.

The GT series soldering systems are the only products in the market to offer the combination of inductive heating technology with adjustable temperature control. This gives the GT systems a significant performance advantage over resistive heating systems, with faster time to temperature, thermal recovery and temperature stability during soldering.

Expanding on their market leading performance with their variable temperature controlled inductive heating systems, Metcal will be releasing software updates allowing users to set temperature profiles for various components or solder joints.

With this patent pending software technicians soldering temperature sensitive components can setup thermal profiles for various component types with the GT family of soldering systems.

“Customers can set profiles with preheat ramp rates, that allow for a more robust soldering solution, preventing damage from thermal shock caused by rapid heating. The capability of handling the most sensitive of components to the most demanding thermal load applications all with one system, enhanced with thermal profiling, brings the most versatile soldering system to the market today,” said Hoa Nguyen, CTO for OK International, the parent company for Metcal.

Metcal GT90 and GT120 systems are offer improved performance over competitive resistive soldering systems and are ideal for production soldering, R&D labs and applications with extremely high thermal loads.

The patent pending software updates will begin in June of 2021, and will be available to customers with existing units. Software updates can be downloaded directly from the Metcal website. For more information about any METCAL™ electronics assembly bench tool solutions, visit metcal.com.
