PACE Offers 10 Free Nozzles with the Purchase of New TF 1800 BGA Rework System


Reading time ( words)

PACE Worldwide announces an introductory promotion in conjunction with the launch of their new TF 1800 System for rework of BGAs, CSPs, QFNs and other bottom terminated components. Production of the TF 1800 was initiated in October and is now ready for shipment. For a limited time, PACE will provide 10 Heat Focusing Nozzles free of charge with the purchase of each TF 1800 System, a value of over $3,400 (£2,700/€3,340). The new TF 1800 incorporates a groundbreaking top-side Inductive-Convection heater, which provides rapid heat-up and active cooling of the solder joints, resulting in faster throughput and greater process control. The patent-pending Inductive-Convection technology allows for an active cooling feature, which provides swift yet controlled component/PCB cool down, directly through the nozzle, yielding the highest quality joints. Its high efficiency, low thermal mass design takes far less power to operate and is more reliable than conventional heaters. 

An automated reflow head is driven by an advanced stepper motor, which provides smooth, ultra-precise, repeatable movement, with no drift, allowing for soft landing of components and 28µm (0.0011”) placement accuracy. In addition, an advanced vacuum pick/shaft design with optical sensor is counterweight balanced to eliminate placement pressure on components, and uses precision high temperature linear ball bearings for highest sensitivity in placement & pick-up. PACE’s exclusive adjustable height bottomside IR preheater allows safe, closer proximity to the PCB for the most challenging high thermal mass boards. Other features include: an HD vision overlay system for optical alignment with quad-field imaging capability for placement of outsized BGA’s or large fine-pitch QFP’s; an integrated underside board support wand to prevent warping during reflow; and user-friendly software which guides operators through an intuitive interface that virtually automates the process.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
