any experience with the heller 988 | 16 November, 1999

has anyone used the small heller 988 reflow? If so what is your opinion of this machine..

is it comperable to the larger heller with a slower rate?

i am looking for a small straight forward reflow for a thin, single sided project but i will dedicate the oven just to these boards

any input would be appreciated

thank you

Greg: Heller 988s are good, solid, basic reflow machines that will turn paste liquid for 85-90% of all applications.

I'm not sure what you mean by "is it comperable to the larger heller with a slower rate?" But, yes it will need to be run slower than a larger oven with more heating zones.

From your description, the 988 sounds perfect.

Good luck
