New FINEPLACER® core –Debut at Productronica 2009

Dec 07, 2009

At the Productronica 2009 tradeshow in Munich, Finetech will introduce its upcoming entry-level rework system, the FINEPLACER® core.

Providing an “out of the box” solution, FINEPLACER® core is based on Finetech’s proven hot air technology and has been designed to meet the requirements of professional rework applications – for today and tomorrow.

Compact design, full functionality

This compact rework station allows integration of the complete rework cycle: component removal, site cleaning, re-balling (array), paste printing (component, PCB), paste dipping, fluxing and soldering, all with an efficient design and without diminishing functionality.

FINEPLACER® core features a placement accuracy better than 25 µm, advanced thermal management with integrated hot air top and bottom heating, the patented FINEPLACER® vision alignment system, automated processes, force measurement and nitrogen support as standards.

Designed for consumer electronics production environments

FINEPLACER® core offers professional rework capabilities for a wide spectrum of SMD components commonly found in consumer electronic environments.

The application area ranges from chip sizes of 0.25 mm up to 50 mm on board sizes up to 400 mm x 300 mm.

The advanced thermal management provides coordinated control of top and bottom heating as well as all process-related parameters: temperature, flow, time and process environment.

Automated processes with force measurement allow user-independent process operation after alignment and guarantees highly reproducible process results.

A real-time process observation video solution gives immediate visual feedback (to reduce process development times).

Available in two configurations

FINEPLACER® core will be available in two versions: While “FINEPLACER® core” comes with a bottom heater designed for more sensitive applications on small boards up to 100 mm x 100 mm (e.g. mobile devices), the “FINEPLACER® coreplus” is dedicated to reworking standard applications on medium sized PCBs.

FINEPLACER® core will be available from January, 2010.
