Kurtz Ersa Inc., a leading supplier of electronics production equipment, announced that it was awarded a 2022 Mexico Technology Award in the category of Repair and Rework for its HR 550 XL Hybrid Rework System. The award was announced during a ceremony that took place Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2022 during SMTA Guadalajara in Mexico. With the 2022 Mexico Technology Award, Ersa adds its 20th award to its repertoire.
The hybrid rework system is for all users who place the highest demands on precision and safety when reworking large assemblies. The HR 550 XL features a 1,800 W high-performance hybrid heating element that can be used to desolder and solder SMT components up to the size of 70 x 70 mm. The 6,400 W infrared bottom heater with eight zones ensures homogeneous heating of the entire assembly.
Non-contact and contacting temperature measurement on the component as well as optimized process control guarantee perfect soldering and desoldering processes. Component removal and component placement are carried out via a vacuum pipette that is integrated in the heating head.
The Mexico Technology Awards acknowledge the latest innovations available in Mexico produced by OEM manufacturing equipment and materials suppliers during the last 12 months.

Dr. Tom Rucker is vice president in technology development at Intel and was a keynote speaker at the IPC Advanced Packaging Symposium, which helped set the table for the rest of the agenda. Tom understands this “radical and seismic” shift in terms of technology and breaks down what it means for the semiconductor and PCB fab industries. There’s absolutely a place at the table for PCB fabricators, but what are the first steps?
