BEST Inc. Puts Semi-Automated Mass PCB Rework Process Online

Mar 31, 2017

BEST Inc., a provider of PCB rework and repair solutions, solder training as well as PCB rework tools, announces that it has recently taken delivery of a custom semi-automatic rework machine. This machine will allow BEST to provide faster turn, more cost-effective pricing for customers requiring high volume rework projects.

Configured like a pick a place machine, this equipment is well-suited for jobs requiring multiple parts to be placed on to the PCB. It is also well-suited for situations when multiple leadless devices or BGAs need to be removed and replaced. For example, one of the first jobs the rework system was used on was a rework project of 400 boards, each with over 90 component removal and placement locations. If such a project were to be completed by hand over 310 man-days would be required as opposed to 3 weeks using the machine.

The machine has the capability for solder paste dipping for BGA rework, dispensing for automating the underfill, epoxy, solder paste or solder mask deposition processes. This allows for many different rework projects and situations to be accommodated.

With this additional piece of equipment and BEST’s other machines, consisting of programmable solder excavation, robotic pick and place/dispense and automated inspection through the use of its AOI or AXI systems, large rework projects can be tooled up by BEST Inc..

Laura Ripoli, inside sales manager for BEST’s rework and repair area commented that “customers will be better served by these capabilities as we are now able to push down lead times”. For more information or to request a quotation please contact Laura Ripoli at extension 33 or at lripoli@solder.net.
