Visit OK International at Southern Manufacturing 2013 to Preview Metcal’s New MX-5200
CHANDLERS FORD, Hampshire UK ―  
OK International will highlight the new Metcal MX-5200 Soldering, Desoldering and Rework Series on stand #G58 at the upcoming Southern Manufacturing exhibition, scheduled to take place February 13-14, 2013 in Farnborough, United Kingdom. The system offers the same increased productivity and process control as the MX-5000 Series, now with dual-simultaneous ports.

The MX-5200 now 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.

Supporting the MX-5200 Series simultaneous dual operation are four different hand-pieces and a comprehensive range of soldering and rework cartridges. 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 28 mm SOICs, and a Desoldering Gun for safely removing through-hole components.
Also on display, the modular Metcal Scorpion Rework System allows for simultaneous viewing of Printed Circuit Board (PCB) pads and component pads or balls for the accurate placement of BGAs. The Scorpion can create specifically tailored reflow profiles through OK International’s unique convection heating technology with nozzle and dual-zone pre-heater in one user-friendly, single platform rework system.

OK International also will showcase precision fluid dispensing solutions on Stand G58 under its other brand Techcon Systems.
