Published: 19 August 2015 - Marianne Evans
Metcal has announced that it has extended its summer special on the MX-5200 Soldering and Rework Series. From now through the end of September, customers who purchase a Metcal MX-5200 system will receive three free cartridge tips. The promotion is available for the MX-5210, MX-5211 and MX-5220 through authorised Metcal distributors in North America.
“The promotion has been gaining steam since it started, and we are excited to extend this offer through our authorised distributors in North America through the end of September,” said Jerry Simmons, marketing manager for Metcal in the Americas.
The MX-5200 Series 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. Four different hand-pieces and a comprehensive range of soldering and rework cartridges support the MX-5200 Series simultaneous dual operation. These include the Metcal Advanced Hand-Piece for SMD rework, a Metcal Ultra-Fine Hand-Piece for fine access, a Precision Tweezer capable of removing a range of components from 0201 chips to 28mm SOICs, and a Desoldering Gun for safely removing through-hole components.
