Compact soldering system

The Metcal CV-510 Connection Validation Soldering System is now available from Ellsworth Adhesives Europe as a companion to its CV-5210 Soldering system.

Connection Validation (CV) is a patented technology which can evaluate solder joint quality by calculating the intermetallic compound formation and providing feedback to the operator. The introduction of the CV technology is claimed to be an industry first, as it offers not only control of the tip temperature but also closed-loop feedback in real time to the operator via the integrated light in the handpiece.

The Metcal CV-510 soldering system packs all the features of CV technology into a compact and economical housing. It is claimed to excel when used for surface mount device (SMD) touch-up and small component rework.

Additionally, it is embedded with SmartHeat technology, which senses the thermal load and delivers power on demand directly to the joint. This ensures soldering is performed in a fast, safe and repeatable process and required no calibration.

The system is also compatible with five Metcal soldering handpieces and upgrade kits providing a complete soldering solution for a variety of applications.
