New AT-GDP Series BGA Rework Station Provides the Latest Precision and Process Control

Sep 23, 2009

Advanced Techniques US, Inc. (ATCO), a manufacturer of innovative equipment for assembly, soldering, and rework of printed circuit boards, is pleased to announce the development of an AT-GDP Series BGA Rework Station. Precise mechanics coupled with a comprehensive software package automates the device removal and installation processes. This model handles both leaded and lead-free applications consisting of components such as BGA’s, CSP’s, QFN’s, Flip Chips, and other SMD’s.

The AT-GDP’s rigid design enables ultra precise placement to within 5 microns. Split Vision Optics allows simultaneous top of the PCB / bottom of the component viewing to superimpose and align both images. Split Imaging creates diagonal corner viewing for alignment of larger packages at high magnification. Absence of mirrors in the optics system ensures a clear and distortion free image quality. Precise closed loop reflow process control enables mimicking of the original production profile. Software contains a database of predefined profiles which the user selects based on the package and PCB being reworked. Profiles may be easily modified, optimized, and stored for future use. Program settings can be adjusted while the profile is running. Software controls reflow via forced air / nitrogen convection top heater and large area Quartz IR preheater. Airflow at the top heater is also controlled and monitored by the software. This guarantees very gentle flow which will not disturb even the smallest adjacent components.


Founded in 1982, Advanced Techniques US Inc. (ATCO) designs and manufacturers innovative equipment for assembly, soldering, and rework of printed circuit boards and hybrid microelectronics. Our product line consists of BGA Rework Stations, Reflow Ovens, and SMT Pick & Place Systems ideal for environments with prototype to medium volumes. ATCO has installed over 4,000 product solutions in the aerospace, consumer electronics, contract electronic manufacturing, government, industrial OEM’s, medical, military, semiconductor, telecommunications, and university markets.
