PDR Offers IPC 7711/7721 Rev. C Courses

Feb 14, 2018

PDR, an industry recognized leader in IR rework since 1986, is pleased to announce that it now offers courses through its PDR Alliance Network for the new IPC 7711/7721 Rev. C standard – The Rework and Repair of Electronic Assemblies – which now includes focused infrared technology as a method for the removal and replacement of components.

With multiple training, demonstration and field support sites in the U.S.A. and abroad, PDR is able to provided firms with the education, training and field support necessary to become successful with the rework and repair of electronic assemblies. To schedule a course or demonstration, visit or call 877-700-6085 toll free to learn more.

Focused IR Rework Technology – Visible IR Rework is now part of Rev. C of IPC 7711/7721 for managers and technicians responsible for the successful rework and repair of electronic assemblies. Focused IR technology is identified as generating visible heat energy that is controlled by the use of an iris mechanism, direct in-process IC thermal control, and does not require air nozzles, i.e. laminar air flow. The technology is well-suited for high-mix applications, applications requiring advanced thermal control precision, and applications requiring the direct in-process control of the IC when undergoing temperature gradients.

PDR Rework Systems remains at the forefront of rework technology by providing air nozzle free systems with advanced in-process control features and visible light that takes the guesswork out of rework.
