Kurtz Ersa Enables Big Board Rework


Reading time ( words)

Kurtz Ersa has launched an automated rework platform for large and heavy PCBs. Providing a heatable area of 625 x 625 mm and the capability to handle board thicknesses of up to 10 mm, the HR 600 XL hybrid rework system offers for the first time a professional repair of high-channel components on big boards, as they occur in telecommunications, networks and infrastructure.

The lower IR Matrix Heater consists of 25 heating elements that can be controlled individually and has a total power of 15 kW. In this way, it is possible to obtain an ideal heat distribution on every application during the preheating process.

The highly efficient 800 W hybrid heating head manages the desoldering and soldering of the smallest components to large ball grid arrays measuring up to 60 x 60 mm, in the familiar Ersa quality and reliability. Just like its smaller brother HR 600/2, the HR 600 XL incorporates an automatic and precise component alignment (±0.025 mm). The process control and documentation with the HRSoft 2 user guidance guarantees reproducible repair results.

The HR 600 XL can be used in fully automatic or half-automatic mode to ensure maximum flexibility. It is compatible with the usage of the Ersa Dip&Print station for the preparation of the components with flux or solder paste before soldering.
