Metcal innovation has led the industry for decades, beginning with SmartHeat® technology that senses the thermal load and instantly delivers power on demand to the solder joint. The embedded self-regulating heater delivers the right amount of power based on the requirements of the solder joint. This provides a fast, safe, and repeatable process with no calibration required. The intermetallic compound thickness is critical in the formation of a solder joint.

Connection Validation™ (CV) evaluates the quality of the solder joint by calculating the intermetallic compound formation and provides closed-loop feedback to the operator. CV provides feedback to the operator via the LED light ring integrated into the hand-piece. It takes the risk associated with the variables involved in the soldering activity and removes the success and failure determination of a good solder joint out of the hands of the operator. CV complements the skill of the operator to judge the quality of a solder joint by introducing an objective method of evaluating solder joint quality. This systemic and objective approach provides repeatability and a measurable standard for the soldering process.
