OK Int'l Unveils Advanced Package Rework Solution
Scorpion rework system.
Garden Grove, CA — OK International has introduced the modular Metcal Scorpion Rework System, which provides accurate component placement and can create specifically tailored reflow profiles through the company's special convection heating technology with nozzle and dual-zone pre-heater in one user-friendly, single platform rework system.

The Scorpion incorporates numerous features that ease the learning curve for new operators while providing the power and performance expected by more experienced users. The patent pending SmartPlace Technology vision system uses dual image overlay technology to provide an image of the solder balls and PCB patterns without the need for complicated prism alignment. The system is totally self-contained and ready to use once it is plugged into a power outlet. The company is also showing the new OKi MFR-1150, a Desoldering System with Venturi Workstand providing a shop air option for all MFR series power supplies. The MFR-1150 is a complete shop air desoldering system that includes a power supply, desolder hand-piece and venturi workstand.

The MFR-UK5 Upgrade kit can also turn existing MFR-1100 or MFR-2200 series systems and older MFR-abc systems into a state-of-the-art desoldering system. The built-in venturi provides 25-in.Hg (0.85 Bar), which substantially increases desolder capability. The MFR-H5-DS can be used as a pencil or as a pistol style by simply adding a clip-on grip supplied with the handpiece.

Solder collection capabilities have been increased by 40 percent from previous MFR desolder systems and the innovative replaceable collection chamber enables reduced downtime and quicker changeover. Also on display is the OKi MRS-1100A, an integrated convection rework system for the removal and placement of BGA/CSP and SMT components. This product offers the choice of using either the embedded profiling capability that can be configured to operate at a fixed temperature, or a four-zone programming option. It also allows the temperature to be controlled either at the heat output or at the board.

The Metcal MX-5000 Series Soldering and Rework System will also be on display along with a choice of 4 handpieces proving its ability to increase productivity and process control for a wide range of applications. Delivering more power, advanced ergonomics and innovative SmartHeat Technology, the MX-5000 represents a next-generation soldering system.
