San Diego and Portland, Ore. — FocalSpot Inc. announces that Vanguard EMS has selected Den-on Instruments, RD-500 for advanced rework applications, including rework of lead-free assemblies.

Designed for both lead-free and standard solder, the system is a vision-based, semi-automated reflow, removal and placement rework station for all printed circuit assemblies, SMD devices and connectors. The RD-500 combines high-powered top and bottom heater configuration with advanced auto-profiling technology to efficiently heat and reflow the most demanding rework applications; from small PDAs and cell phones, to PC motherboards and multi-layered avionics backplanes.

Vanguard selected the RD-500 based on its heating technology, ease of use and price performance. FocalSpot's product manager, Raymond LaFleur, was tasked during the evaluation to demonstrate the performance of the machine on several demanding applications, including lead-free rework. Vanguard recognized the benefits and capabilities of the RD-500 over their existing rework solutions, including the price/performance value payback of this low-cost high-quality rework solution.
