Metcal launches cost-effective solution to rework complex and small components

Jul 21, 2014

Metcal announces the addition of the Solder Ball Placement Kit to its convection rework accessory range. The company has developed a technique and identified a selection of tools that enable the operator to rework small components with repeatability and consistency.

The popularity of 01005 components has generated a new rework challenge making it virtually impossible unless carried out by expensive rework equipment,” said Paul Wood, Advanced Applications Manager at Metcal. “This kit, added to a hot air pencil, provides a complete and effective solution for reworking most small components at a low cost.”

Reworking small chip components such as 01005, 0201, 0402 and 0602s can be difficult and require specialized tools. The Solder Ball Placement Kit includes the tools necessary to rework small chip components.

The kit contains:

  • 2000 each of .04mm, .06mm, .08mm, & .10mm solder balls with container
  • Four ESD-safe carbon fiber reinforced oilers; black 0.2mm, blue 0.3mm, green 0.5mm, and red 0.8mm
  • One part positioning matrix and squeegee
  • One PEEK spudger
  • One bent tweezers
  • One half tweezers
  • One 5000 grit sharpening stone
