Modular Rework System from PDR
Modular rework system.
Wimborne, UK — PDR has launched its modular rework system — the IR-XT5 — designed to deliver flexibility for SMT/BGA rework. The system will give electronics manufacturers the freedom to specify exactly what they need, exactly when they need it, protecting their initial investments into the future and enabling them to build their capabilities as their needs grow.

According to the company, the new rework system provides a high degree of flexibility and modularity, taking all of the functionality of its existing systems plus some important new developments, and rolling these all into a single platform that covers the entire price range for SMT/BGA rework.

The company's fully-modular approach, with its specially designed new chassis, allows customers to decide how much they want to spend, selecting exactly what they need from a massive range of features. Furthermore, their original investment is protected for the future as all the modules are IR-XT5 designed, so they can upgrade their capabilities as future needs dictate.

Depending on the customer's requirements, the pick-up system will be specified with or without a vision system, and here too, the company has improved its offering: customers can opt for the company's new state-of-the-art split beam prism BGA alignment system and can choose to further augment this with auxiliary process observation — a secondary camera with high magnification, oblique viewing and enhanced illumination that views the BGA being reflowed.

The company also provides a selection of heat sensors, including contact sensors, innovative non-contact IR sensor, or a brand-new professional IR sensor with centered LED targeting that can focus a measuring spot as small as 2mm on the component to be reworked, recording the temperature accurately on even the smallest CSP device.
