Metcal has introduced a user-friendly, benchtop soldering robot that is intuitive to use and program. Much like using an iPad, the user interacts with a touchscreen interface to provide details such as dwell times, delays, lengths of solder feeds, and angles of attack to provide the best quality joint, repeatedly.
Utilizing another of Metcal's intuitive features, the user program's the robot in 'Connection Validation (CV) Mode,' a method that eliminates user-determined dwell times and calculates the intermetallic bond formation based on calculations and algorithms provided within the software. This feature communicates with the robot when each individual joint has received enough power for reflow and moves along the process accordingly.
Webinar: Reduce Risk and Increase Productivity with Robotic Soldering
Last month, Metcal's Regional Sales Manager, Ed Zamborsky and Product Engineer, Isaac Cisneros, hosted the Reduce Risk and Increase Productivity with Robotic Soldering webinar in partnership with Engineering360 powered by GlobalSpec. You can view it on-demand today to learn more about robotic soldering.
