We are currently using an Air-Vac DRS24 hot air BGA/SMD rework unit. Most of our nozzles are designed to channel the exhaust away from nearby components. This and a minimum keepout of .100" has prevented any issues with secondary reflow of those co

I work for a contract manufacture of PCB's, we are also in the BGA rework business. We see all kinds of different size boards, as well as different types of BGA's and micro BGA's. We selected the Conceptronics Freedom 2000 over the Air Vac and SRT. T

I have been using an Air-Vac DRS-22 for almost two years with very good results. Once a profile is developed it is very repeatable. The DRS-22 is no longer available, however. It has been replaced by the DRS-24. Unfortunately, the DRS-24 has a lo

No, $60K is for the DRS-24 which has replaced the DRS-22. The 24 adds more bells and whistles, like motorized Z axis. I think they are pricing themselves out of the market, although I understand they are offering a stripped down 24 which is essenti

We've had success with AirVac's DRS-22 system. Their people seem to understand the rework process better than many other suppliers. I'm sure you can find them on the Web. Note: When looking at a competing supplier's equipment last year, the demo gu

what are your grading criterias? All of these work pretty good but have differences in the "bells and whistles" I like the Air-Vac DRS24 (no exp. with the 22) because of the large under heater and thermo-couple control. but it is very slow and costl

We have an assembly that requires a number of high density connectors to be placed after SMD. The process will not allow a normal wave solder setup due to the population of SMD comps. We cannot use a selective solder pallet due to profiles. We are

If you want an inexpensive, good, somewhat dedicated, solution, then I would use a desktop wave pot like Wenesco or better yet Air Vac. The PCBRM10 or PCBRM12 from Air Vac may still be available. Can find on Ebay also. They have a quick change, pr

You will need to develop your reflow profile which includes drilling a hole through the fab and into the ball for accurate temp measure. During profile/process development you will probably want 3D x-ray (consider contracting that out). Once in prod
