PACE to Introduce BGA Rework System with Revolutionary Heater at SMTAI


Reading time ( words)

PACE Worldwide will introduce its new TF 1800 BGA/SMD Rework System at the upcoming SMTA International conference in Rosemont, Illinois on September 27–28.

The TF 1800 incorporates a groundbreaking top-side inductive-convection heater, which provides rapid heat-up and active cooling of the solder joints, resulting in faster throughput and greater process control.

The patent-pending inductive-convection technology allows for an active cooling feature, which provides swift yet controlled component/PCB cool down, directly through the nozzle, yielding the highest quality joints. Its high efficiency, low thermal mass design takes far less power to operate and is more reliable than conventional heaters. An automated reflow head is driven by an advanced stepper motor, which provides smooth, ultra-precise, repeatable movement, with no drift, allowing for soft landing of components and 28μm (0.0011”) placement accuracy. In addition, an advanced vacuum pick/shaft design with optical sensor is counterweight balanced to eliminate placement pressure on components, and uses precision high temperature linear ball bearings for highest sensitivity in placement and pick-up.

PACE's exclusive adjustable height bottom-side IR preheater allows safe, closer proximity to the PCB for the most challenging high thermal mass boards. Other features include: an HD vision overlay system for optical alignment with quad-field imaging capability for placement of outsized BGAs or large fine-pitch QFPs; an integrated underside board support wand to prevent warping during reflow; and user-friendly software which guides operators through an intuitive interface that virtually automates the process.

Why do we train and educate our employees? Here, I will share my perspective based on what is happening in facilities trying to outsource their products, as I see that many companies are losing the tribal knowledge of how things are manufactured and the basic skills necessary to physically build a product.

Lorain County Community College’s Successful MEMS Program

12/07/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect007 editorial team had the pleasure of an extended and detailed conversation with Johnny Vanderford and Courtney Tenhover from Lorain County Community College (LCCC). Vanderford and Tenhover are at the heart of the microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) program at LCCC that is emerging as a model for a successful technical higher-education program. This conversation was lively, and the enthusiasm at LCCC is infectious, as it should be; their results are impressive.
