METCAL HCT2-200 Digital Hot Air Pencil is a digital handheld convection tool for use in light rework applications that use smaller components and integrated circuits. As component miniaturization 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. Product was developed for very small surface mount component and package sizes (1206s and smaller) and low board densities. Providing improved thermal performance, the product series includes an array of nozzle sizes for precision control.
