Mid Grade BRA Rework (20K to 50K)| 13 November, 2017
Hi all, I'm in the market for a BGA rework machine capable of handling a wide range of PCB's, anything from little 2"X2" board up to 15"X15" back-plane boards that are 0.100" thick. I would like to find a machine that can remove BGA's & QFN's, clean the pads and then replace the part.
Any input or recommendation you can provide would be greatly appreciated! I was originally planning on attending the IPC APEX EXPO in 2018 to try and look at some machines but our need may force me to make a decision before then.
Our local sales rep has recommended the Air-vac DRS25 but that seems like a rather old platform so I'm a little hesitant.
