PDR to Show the E6S Evolution Rework System at APEX

Jan 07, 2020

PDR is pleased to announce plans to exhibit its rework equipment at the 2020 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place Feb. 4-6, 2020 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. The company will display the award-winning E6S Evolution Rework System in Booth #1213.

PDR’s Gantry Level Focused Infrared Rework System Model E6S is designed to rework PCBs up to 24” (610mm). PDR’s unique gantry design offers full rework access to devices placed on the leading edges of medium to large PCB formats in a simple and convenient to use rework system.

PDR’s E6 series utilizes PDR’s patented Focused IR Rework Technology with visible IR component targeting as well as infrared pre-heating from below for superior thermal balancing of the PCB during the rework process.

Defense entities, Aerospace, Medical, Telecom, Transportation, Contract Manufacturing firms, and Research Organizations have identified PDR’s E6 technology as the system of choice for the machine’s ease of use, effective rework and flexibility to tackle a wide range of applications. Priced below fully automated systems, PDR’s simple design and easy to master rework systems are built to ensure that they are virtually maintenance free, offering years of useful service with many PDR systems built in the 1980s still in service.

PDR Rework Systems remains at the forefront of rework technology by providing air nozzle free systems with advanced in-process control features and visible light that takes the guesswork out of rework. PDR X-ray Solutions was founded in 2012, distributing and supporting X-ray Solutions for industry under the PDR Brand as well as other well-known X-ray Brands.


PDR is a pioneer in IR rework, test and inspection systems, with its products specified by many of the world’s largest names in electronics manufacturing and repair. PDR’s patented “Focused IR and Thermal Management Technology” is fully vested by leading aerospace, defense, biomedical, telecom, automotive, MRO, R&D, and electronic and manufacturing firms for its highest quality and best performing systems.
