CYPRESS, CA – METCAL™ today announced the launch of the new HCT-910 Hot Air Rework System. This hot air system is accurate and intuitive to use, with high thermal performance capable of meeting the full spectrum of application requirements needed for production and rework in electronics manufacturing.
The Metcal HCT-910 can generate 900 watts of heat with a maximum temperature of 600 °C. This expands the capability of the Metcal HCT-910 beyond standard thermal demand applications to higher thermal demanding applications in military, defense, and aerospace, using highly metalized circuit boards.
The Metcal HCT-910 digital interface is intuitive and easy to use. The system incorporates a novel control method making it easy to quickly adjust the temperature and airflow rates without looking away from the application. In addition, a multi-color status light on the hand-piece is a visual cue to the operator regarding the “current status” of the unit.
“The Metcal HCT-910 improves the user experience significantly by adding features such as ‘On-the-fly’ manual control which utilizes a single push-button knob to adjust, control, and quickly toggle between temperature and airflow. This intuitive design, in combination with accurate temperature, and the performance of the 900-watt heater, will improve throughput while controlling a tight quality process,” said Curtis Yamauchi, Product Manager of Metcal.
The Metcal HCT-910 can be configured for any worldwide standard voltage and power outlets. It also offers an intuitive user interface, multiple language settings, and a USB port to update software and power peripherals such as fans, lights, cameras, or even a cell phone.
The complete system for each model includes the hot air tool, power cord, and hand-piece cradle to support a variety of soldering and rework applications.
