Solutions in Soldering Technology

Metcal’s new CV Monitor software collects vital process information!

Improve your solder process traceability and create a performance baseline using CV's intelligent cartridges plus CV-5000 Monitor software. Using our Connection Validation patented technology, CV Monitor software allows you to capture solder process information over time for each joint when attached to the communication port. You'll get:

      • Intermetallic Compound Formation (IMC Formation)*
     • Power demand
     • Tip temperature
     • Solder time

 Now that you have a baseline, you can quickly analyse your soldering performance, identify changes in your solder conditions, and make changes to your process. Download the free CV-5000 Monitor software and start monitoring your process.
