Thanks Jerry. Did you buy your unit through Ersa or a used dealer/distributor?

Can anyone tell me an approximate cost of the PDR 410 and/or ERSA IR rework station? Is the main advantage of using these systems over a hot air machine in that nozzles are not needed?

Good luck finding used. Ersa is top quality but you pay for it. The IR from Ersa is a medium wavelength thus heating is consistent across the board despite different component densities and colors. PDR does not heat the same and thus you have to be m

I was quoted a new ERSA IR550_PL550 unit last year for $36,500.00. I purchase a previously owned but never used one for $28,000.00. Jerry

I had a PDR Lightmaster Pro at the last place I worked at, and I thought it was the best rework station I've ever used. Not only because of the fact that no nozzles were needed, but the heat delivery from the focused IR light was superb. I don't know

I have been looking into buying a rework station like ERSA or PDR. What I am questioning is how well will these systems reflow BGA's with metal top/cover that are reflective. In addition, when preheating the board would dark body packages absorb te
