Metcal soldering stations have led the way with SmartHeat® technology for 35 years. SmartHeat senses the thermal load and instantly delivers Power on Demand directly to the 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.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 in the hand-piece.

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 analyze 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.
