R&D Technical Services� Wins NPI Award for V-Works 24 Vapor Phase Rework Station

Apr 07, 2008

BURNSVILLE, MN � March 31, 2008 � Vapor Works, a division of R&D Technical Services Inc., announces that the V-Works 24 Vapor Phase Rework Station (patent pending) has been awarded an NPI Award in the category of Repair & Rework. The award was presented to the company during a Monday, March 31, 2008 ceremony that took place in the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas before the start of APEX 2008.

The Vapor Works division was formed to service the single component rework sector of the electronics industry. Forty years of combined vapor phase experience went into the development of V-Works 24, the industry�s first Vapor Phase Rework Station.

V-Works 24 is designed specifically as a single component rework tool using vapor phase technology to transfer heat for removal and replacement of single components and connectors on circuit boards. The tool uses proven vapor phase technology to deliver uniform condensation heat transfer to the single component rework environment. The V-Works 24 allows users to utilize the absolute limits of maximum temperatures, small delta at peak temperatures, and the unsurpassed uniformity and heat transfer ability that vapor phase is famous for to remove and replace single components.

The V-Works 24 solves many of the problems now plaguing the rework sector of the electronics industry and, specifically, lead-free applications. Hot air and IR rework stations may bring issues such as overheating, shadowing, deflection and reflection to rework. These become non-issues with the new V-Works 24 Vapor Rework Station.

The rework station comes standard with numerous features including a 24 x 24" working envelope, split mirror and camera vision system for aligning components, on-board recipe storage for precise rework parameters, touch screen operator interface for ease of use, manual x, y and z adjustment, vacuum system for containment of working fluids and vapors, bottom-side global preheat, semi-automatic cycle for removal and replacement of components, cool down function, high-quality construction, and full safety features.

Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
