PACE Introduces MT-200 MiniTweez® Thermal Tweezer for Precision Micro-Component Rework

Reading time ( words)

Electronic components continue to miniaturize while board densities increase, resulting in significant rework challenges. This demands the ability to precisely target heat to reflow the component, without adversely affecting adjacent components.

To meet these challenges, PACE Worldwide announces the MT200 MiniTweez®, a new thermal tweezer designed to quickly and safely rework tightly spaced micro-components such as 0201s, 0402s and 0603s in a simple, one-handed operation. As perfectly aligned tips are critical for success, the MT-200 features multiaxis tip alignment capability. A Tip-Gap Adjustment Wheel allows the operator to match the gap between the tips to the work thus reducing grip stress and operator fatigue, particularly during repetitive operations. In addition, the MT-200 can also provide safe, rapid removal of much larger chips and components such as SOTs, D-PAKs, SOICs and TSOPs.

Designed exclusively for PACE’s AccuDrive® power sources, the MT-200 uses patented, higher-powered Blue-Series Tip-Heater Cartridges that can be changed within seconds and heat up instantly yet are only half the cost of competitive tweezer cartridges. The MT-200 is available as a complete station with ADS200 AccuDrive® Power Supply and Instant SetBack Tool Stand, which automatically reduces tip temperature to increase tip life, or as a handpiece/cubby kit for use with existing ADS200 Soldering Stations.
