OK International has launched a new shop air desoldering system, providing a powerful desoldering solution for today’s production assembly specialists. The launch of the OK International MFR-1150 Desoldering System along with the company’s unique MFR-UK5 Upgrade kit, enables assemblers to transform existing MFR systems into shop air desoldering  systems.

The new MFR-1150 Desoldering System adds a shop air desoldering option to their MFR range of solder and rework tools. Incorporating a built-in power supply, desoldering hand-piece and unique venturi workstand, the system features an increased vacuum suction force of 25” Hg or 0.85 bar. The advanced desoldering system also features a hand-piece  that can be used in two different configurations, either a pencil style or pistol grip.  The hand-piece also increases solder collection capability by 40% compared to previous MFR systems thanks to an expanded collection chamber capacity. The replaceable chamber also reduces downtime and ensures a rapid changeover without compromise. 

The launch of the MFR-UK5 Upgrade Kit extends the reach of the MFR range even further, by easily turning existing MFR-1100 or MFR-2200 series systems, along with older MFR- systems, into sophisticated desoldering units. Thanks to the innovative design of the  MFR-WSDSX workstand, the MFR-UK5 Upgrade Kit can be easily incorporated into any older MFR system to extend its lifetime and dramatically enhance its productivity. For today’s manufacturers, this development means there is now a shop air option for the entire MFR Series.

Commenting on the company’s latest product innovation, OK International Product Manager Andy Cotton explains: “We’re happy that we can extend our customer’s productivity advantage with this new desoldering equipment.  Not only is the MFR-1150 desoldering system a great addition to our MFR range of solder and rework tools, the MFR-UK5 Upgrade Kit brings the advantages of these new products to existing users of our MFR power supplies.”
