OK International, a leading global supplier of soldering tools and equipment for production assembly, announces that the new Metcal Scorpion Rework System has received a significant amount of positive industry attention, including the prestigious 2012 EM Asia Innovation Award in the category of Repair/Rework Equipment.
Industry feedback across the globe has been extremely positive for the modular Metcal Scorpion Rework System, which debuted at the Productronica Exhibition in November 2011. The Scorpion Rework System meets the challenges of array package rework and the accurate placement of ball grid arrays (BGAs), in particular, while allowing for simultaneous viewing of printed circuit board (PCB) pads and component pads or balls.
Additionally, it provides accurate component placement and can create specifically tailored reflow profiles through OK International’s unique convection heating technology with nozzle and dual-zone preheater in one user-friendly, single platform rework system.
The Scorpion Rework System incorporates numerous features that ease the learning curve for new operators while providing the power and performance expected from more experienced users. The patent pending SmartPlace Technology vision system employs dual image overlay technology providing an image of the solder balls and PCB patterns without the need for complicated prism alignment. The system is completely self-contained and ready to use once it is plugged into a power outlet.
OK International’s product range includes bench top soldering and desoldering tools, array package rework equipment, fluid dispensing systems and accessories, and fume extraction systems.
OK International is committed to understanding the product needs of its customers and supplies professional grade products that are innovative, reliable, price competitive and easy to use. Through a global sales channel, OK International provides expert product support and responsive customer service, with localization to meet regional market needs.
