The new HCT2-120 Hot Air Pencil is the latest addition to Metcal’s offering of convection rework tools. This digital handheld convection tool is ideally suited for light rework applications, which use smaller components and integrated circuits.
As component miniaturization continues (i.e. 01005 components), the ergonomics of a pencil allow a user more freedom to access and rework components on the board without affecting adjacent parts. Larger hand-held convection systems commonly reflow and dislodge adjacent components due to a higher minimum airflow. The HCT2-120’s small nozzle sizes and precise and controllable airflow and temperature allow the operator to target only the desired component.
The HCT2-120 was developed for very small surface mount component sizes (1206’s and smaller) and low board densities. For denser PCBA’s or applications with heavy copper planes; boards >4 layers; or components larger than 5mm2, use of a Metcal preheater (PCT-100 series) may be necessary.
