Basic BGA setup | 20 November, 2009

Hi All,

I do PC/Laptop repair and are finding some jobs I cant do because they need a BGA rework.

I dont admit to being a pro with respect to BGA, and thus a purchase decision is hard.I have been looking at :

I am open to any and all suggestions from people on here about the best way to proceed. I dont see a lot of point at the moment spending too much as I wont know what I need till i have more experiance, and the Hakko system can be brought one peice at a time which is good.

A metcal 3592 second hand sounds good, but have not seen any second hand and dont know the price?

Look forward to any tips.

Have you considered outsourcing the rework of the BGA? Besides the rework system, you will need: solder paste, stencils, cleaning method, X-ray, and the biggest part experience...
