OK International, a leading global supplier of soldering tools and equipment for production assembly, will unveil the new Metcal Scorpion Rework System in Booth #1641 at the upcoming IPC APEX Expo, scheduled to take place February 28 - March 1, 2012 at the San Diego Convention Center in California.
The challenges of array package rework, and the accurate placement of BGAs, in particular, called for a solution that allowed for simultaneous viewing of Printed Circuit Board (PCB) pads and component pads or balls. OK International has responded with the modular Metcal Scorpion Rework System.
The Scorpion provides accurate component placement and can create specifically tailored reflow profiles through OK International’s unique convection heating technology with nozzle and dual-zone pre-heater in one user-friendly, single platform rework system.
The Scorpion incorporates numerous features that ease the learning curve for new operators while providing the power and performance expected from more experienced users. The patent pending SmartPlace Technology vision system employs dual image overlay technology providing an image of the solder balls and PCB patterns without the need for complicated prism alignment. The system is totally self-contained and ready to use once it is plugged into a power outlet.
