PDR Unveils New Software Feature for Rework Systems


Reading time ( words)

PDR has introduced a new software feature in its rework system that will allow the operator to utilize keyboard functions to execute in-process features such as thermal boost, extended soak, skip zone, and temperature averaging. These new features complement the award-winning ThermoActive Suite Software and equip operators with additional tools to perform exceptionally difficult rework tasks.

Research and development organizations as well low-volume high-mix EMS providers have found these tools exceptionally beneficial, time saving, not available with other systems, and important for the creation of quality rework results.

Easy to master and intuitive by design, the ThermoActive Suite Plus offers simplicity while providing powerful behind-the-scenes control to achieve maximum rework productivity. With just six PDR supplied general profiles, PDR’s dynamic software automatically adjusts the wattage required to achieve high yield small board, medium board, and large board rework.

The ThermoActive Suite Plus does not require a ‘Teach/Learn Mode,’ meaning it is capable of self-adjusting thermal output to reach safe reflow temperatures automatically. As a result, users see a reduction in time and effort required for precision process/profile development. Additionally, in auto profile mode, the software dynamically responds by increasing or decreasing top heat relative to the environment, ramp rate, and temperature limits.

PDR Rework Systems remains at the forefront of rework technology by providing air nozzle free systems with advanced in-process control features and visible light that takes the guesswork out of rework.

Preparing the Next-gen Tech Workforce

05/18/2022 | Marc Carter, Independent Contributor
Knowledge transfer, especially from the “graying-out” experienced technical workers in our industry, is a complex, difficult family of problems. It differs wildly between companies, and even within divisions of the same company. One of the biggest barriers is the full manufacturing schedules in North American electronics companies that don’t leave any slack time—and the 40-hour work week is a complete fantasy for many.
