Digital hot air pencil
EMP 2018 Electronics Manufacturing & Production Handbook, Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Metcal has added the HCT2-200 digital hot air pencil to its line of convection rework tools. This digital handheld convection tool is designed for use in light rework applications that use smaller components and integrated circuits.

As component miniaturisation continues (e.g. 01005 components), the ergonomics of a pencil become more important to allow a user freedom to access and rework components on the board without affecting adjacent parts. Larger handheld convection systems commonly reflow and dislodge adjacent components due to a higher minimum airflow. The HCT2-200 was developed for very small surface mount component and package sizes (1206s and smaller) and low board densities.

The pencil’s enhanced thermal performance allows the user to target a larger variety of components, and working under a microscope is made easier with the optional bent nozzles. New features include a 200 W ceramic heater, dual stage air pump and replaceable handpiece.
