OK International is currently preparing to take a selection of world renowned products to the leading trade fair for innovative electronics manufacturing, Productronica 2011. The exhibition is taking place from the 15th to the 18th of November in Munich, at the Munich Trade Fair Centre, where OK International will be showcasing it’s Metcal, OKi and Techcon product ranges on stand A4.127. Visitors to the stand will also have the exciting opportunity to enter a competition to win a brand new iPad 2.
Among the technologies on the OK International booth, will be the MFR-1150 Desoldering System. The brand new MFR-1150 is a shop air desoldering system which incorporates a built-in power supply, desoldering hand-piece and venturi workstand. Increased functionality is offered by the unique hand-piece that can be used in two different configurations, either a pencil style or pistol grip. The hand-piece also improves solder collection capability by 40% compared to previous MFR systems, thanks to an expanded collection chamber capacity. The major benefits of this product to manufacturers include the replaceable chamber feature, which reduces downtime and ensures a rapid changeover without compromise.
Alongside this the MFR-1300 will also be on show. The MFR-1300 has a unique power supply, featuring an internal pump which provides 0.7 bar (21in Hg) of vacuum suction force combined with Smartheat® Technology, renowned for its productivity-boosting response and control. This feature ensures through-hole desoldering is as simple as possible and ensures products are safe from damage. Other benefits of the system include a dual switchable output enabling the user to operate one or two different hand-pieces for high versatility.
OK International will also be demonstrating the extremely versatile MRS-1100 system at Productronica. The product is comprised of a handheld convection tool with a wide array of nozzles, preheater, adjustable tool holder with board holder, and light magnifier. Capable of handling PCBs up to 190mm x 305mm (7 ½” x 12”) using the stand-alone BH-2000 Board Holder, the manually-assisted rework system is equipped to process components up to 40mm x 40mm, making it a flexible choice for the removal of delicate SMT components and other processes requiring increased control. With standard features including programmability, a digital display, program storage of up to 50 profiles and adjustability; the system is extremely versatile for enhanced productivity. In addition to this the new and improved MRS-1100A Modular Rework System now includes the BH-2000 free-standing board holder to replace the board holder rails that were previously part of the ATH-1000 system. The result is a greater capacity to manage diverse board sizes and thicknesses while providing a more stable working area.
Visitors wishing to enter the exclusive competition to win an iPad2 just need to visit the OK International stand and answer a couple of simple questions. They will then be entered into the competition and the winning name will be drawn after the show and notified directly.
