Rework Solutions for all Applications
At Productronica 2017, Finetech together with MARTIN is presenting a comprehensive portfolio of rework solutions for the whole SMD spectrum. On booth #A4/181, which is devoted exclusively to the company's rework branch, showcased products include professional universal systems as well as individually configured special solutions for advanced rework challenges. Live on display will be the FINEPLACER® core, a versatile hot air rework station for professional SMD rework.
The FINEPLACER® core is a universally applicable soldering system for the rework of electronic components and assemblies according to IPC/JEDEC. The whole rework cycle can be carried out on the compact rework system, starting from de-soldering the component through site cleaning, reballing and dispensing to soldering the new component. The spectrum of compatible SMD devices ranges from very small components (01005) to large BGAs.
The optionally available Dispenser Module RD3C can apply glue, flux and solder accurately and precisely dosed. By integrating the working step “Dispensing”, the applicability and versatility of the machine is further expanded. This includes, for instance, the application of solder or conductive adhesive onto small passive 01005 SMD components or LED components. For leadless components like QFN with only few contact pads, applying solder by means of a dispenser is a fast, affordable and flexible alternative to stencil printing. Another application of the machine can be the precision underfilling of BGA or CSP with epoxy material.
Depending on the requirements the customer can choose between a local bottom heating for small-format circuit boards (e.g. cellphones, navigation systems, micro PC’s, hearing aids) and a full-area bottom heating optimized for medium-sized circuit boards (e.g. tablets, laptops, game consoles).
The intuitive operating concept of the FINEPLACER® core together with a comprehensive pre-installed process library and graphical user guidance allow taking up work quickly. Extensive professional functions like digital calibration of the top heating, precise control of the touchdown force and live process observation make FINEPLACER® core a future-proof investment when the demands get tougher.
The FINEPLACER® core is successfully used in R&D, process development, prototyping or manufacturing environments. Due to its system-to-system process transfer capability, processes can be centrally created and administrated and later be used on different systems with identical results.
