METCAL has a good unit, for BGA rework, and it uses Hot Air Reflow (convection). The pros and cons of Hot Air Vs IR, you can find easily ard u... em are ageless topics, happy debating. hint : good reasons why SMT Reflow Ovens, were IR switched to

Hi People! We are leading assembler of car audio systems in US. Since last few weeks we have extream problems with wavesolder operations, bridging is a major defect. To solve this we have decided to install Hot Air Knife. I contacted Electrovert but

I'm new in SMT and the company I'm working with has already purchased SMFL-3000 manual pick & place system with hot air and we don't have reflow oven. We are now starting design SMT board. My question is, how we reflow the solder? After all component

We have been using a hot air knife on Electrovert equipment for a few years. It must be set up properly for a given machine, primarily the distance from the trailing edge of the wave. Sometimes the set up must be adjusted for the assembly being sol

Reworking BGA with hot air systems (ie, AirVac, SRT) is fairly complicated and requires fairly rigorous process control. Please compare and contrast BGA rework using hot air and your laser based system.

Anyone have any recommendations for hot air, hand held rework stations? We currently use Hakko for leaded assembly. We already have a sniper for bga rework.

Danotherms for hot air rework & Metcal MX500's for irons = very happy staff (& very unhappy accountants!)
