Among the innovative technologies on the OK International booth, the newly introduced MRS-1000 Modular Rework System looks set to prove a highlight. A powerful high accuracy benchtop solution, this system is ideal for processes requiring increased control such as the removal of delicate SMT components The OK International booth will also highlight the MFR-1100 Multi-Function Rework System’s capacity to deliver responsive and repeatable heating for a wide range of assembly challenges. As the only single output system to utilize both a soldering cartridge and tip, this will undoubtedly be a popular addition to the OK International Productronica display.
The OK International team will also demonstrate the company’s Metcal MX-5000 Soldering, Desoldering and Rework System. A high performance package for complex assembly challenges, the MX-5000 combines increased power with the company’s exclusive SmartHeat® Technology to eliminate overshoot potential and maintain high productivity soldering and rework. Commanding high throughput and precision control, the MX-5000 also incorporates a built-in digital power indication display for continuous operator feedback and consistent, quality solder joints. Highly flexible and easy-to-use, the Metcal system measurably reduces training investment, extends application possibilities and boosts productivity.
The new and improved APR-5000 XL/XLS Array Package Rework System will also be on display. It now allows the use of inner and outer preheaters at the same time. This will increase the productivity of the unit by reducing rework cycle time and protecting the component under rework by lowering nozzle temperature to achieve the same required temperature with solder joints or balls and reducing BGA lid temperatures. The APR-5000-XL/XLS will now have the ability to manage the narrow lead-free process window without reaching excessive peak temperatures that damage components, connectors, other solder joints and the PCB substrate. The simultaneous use of an inner and outer preheater at different temperatures delivers precise control and faster profiling. In most cases, the preheater nozzle and reflow top nozzle can be used at the same temperature in the final zones to easily achieve target temperatures. New software on the APR-5000 system dramatically simplifies rework for a faster, safer and more repeatable performance, enabling quick, simple profiling.
“As one of the world’s largest exhibitions for electronics production, Productronica is the perfect platform from which to showcase our unique range of soldering and assembly technologies,” explains OK International European Marketing Manager, Nathalie Morin. “Not only will Productronica visitors have the opportunity to see some of our most innovative products in action, but they will also be able to find out how they can TAP into a whole host of operational advantages to become Superproducers themselves. We’ll show visitors exactly how our technologies have enabled others to spend less time on training, make lead-free soldering and advanced rework applications simple and save money on tip-life and consumable replacement. All this amounts to nothing short of a super-human soldering performance! Seeing is believing, so we’re looking forward to showcasing it all at Productronica.”
