PDR Americas Releases New Focused IR Micro Component / PCB Rework System


Reading time ( words)

PDR is pleased to announce the PDR IR-E3M Micro Component/PCB Rework System. In response to customer demands for ultra-precision micro-rework, PDR has taken its popular Focused IR E3 Evolution Series Rework Platform and further enhanced it for extreme micro-rework applications. In addition to general-purpose applications, the IR-E3M’s thermal, mechanical and optical features are all precisely engineered to easily deal with micro components and micro PCBs.

This system is absolutely ideal for micro component PCB rework without complications, one of three versions that make up the IR-E3 Evolution Series of SMD/BGA Rework Stations. In addition to the 2250w micro-PCB preheater, a 750w electronic Thermo Boost is included along with dual non-contact, closed-loop thermal control. High-magnification vision assisted component alignment, pick-up and ultra-fine placement complete the micro-process handling in addition to micro part component nesting and universal micro PCB palletization tools.

Put simply, the system can pick and place micro components or large BGAs and reflow small or large boards with precision and control. The PDR IR process is simple, safe and gentle. Precise control prevents burning or damage to materials. PDR can visually show the process, record it and repeat it precisely every time. Anyone can learn to use these systems and they are affordable.

The PDR IR-E3 systems are available in three models – IR-E3S Standard, IR-E3G Gold and IR-E3M Micro Component/PCB Rework System – each configured perfectly for their respective roles. The IR-E3 series provides extremely high levels of profiling and process control necessary for the effective rework of the most advanced packages, including SMDs, BGAs, CSPs, QFNs, LEDs, Flip-chips, 0201-01005s and all lead-free applications.

Each of the E3 Series rework systems use the same principals of PDR’s Focused IR technology, first introduced in 1987. More than 4,500 systems are now in use worldwide.

Driving Down Cost in the Supply Chain

04/08/2021 | Meghan Zou, EPOCH
Driving cost out of the supply chain goes beyond reduction of raw material cost. Though many of the manufacturers today concentrate on negotiation with their raw material supplier(s) the hidden cost of internal supply chain goes undetected. To address the cost of the entire supply chain we should not only look at direct material cost but also the cost of internal supply chain. At Epoch we looked at four areas in particular which include: planning/tracking, storage/delivery, inventory management, and supplier relationships.

5 Keys to Smart Process Success

01/28/2021 | Steve Williams, The Right Approach Consulting LLC
Smart factories require the core underlying processes to be connected and “talking” to generate the data necessary to make real-time process decisions, that is, the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). In a truly connected factory, an ongoing continuous dialog between machines, business processes, suppliers and customers is happening in the background. This dialog is not only interactive, but proactive, as a constant stream of real-time data is tweaking and adjusting processes to drive improvement. It also provides time-critical information on how processes are operating, supply chain pipeline, and delivery status updates—all based on data.
