Take a look at model AT707 from advanced techniques. We had ours for close to 2 years without any problems. No affiliation with the company.

We also have an AT-707. It has performed pretty well for us. No issues thus far. Software has no auto profile like some others do but for the price its a good system. Get a good look at the optics before you buy. Have used this system for a couple years now I wish we got one with different color lights (Air Vac) for the part and board. Makes viewing much easier.

Please define the pitch of the devices, package size and area rray package style so we make a recommendation. Also let us know the kind of product you will run in terms of their value (WIP cost @ time of rework), maximum board size and board thickness. Will you need to running lead-free product through this station?

Hi Jerome,

You may also want to consider APR-5000 from Metcal. Capability and price is very reasonable.

No matter the machine/process you choose, you may want to look at my article and free download about BGA rework, repair, and/or modification.
