Manncorp: Automatic Rework Station
Automatic rework station.
Willow Grove, PA — Manncorp has added automation and operator upgrades for its Martin "Expert" lead-free rework system. The new 09.6 version of the PC-controlled station automatically performs virtually any stage of SMT repair, from removal to replacement, as well as the resolder of BGAs, CSPs, µBGAs and other SMDs.

During placement, a high-resolution camera combined with the unit's exclusive Auto Vision Placement (AVP), precisely controls component positioning in full and continuous view of the operator. There is no need to shuttle the camera out of the path of the placement head, as is the case with most vision-based rework systems.

The IR underheating unit conserves energy by adjusting to the exact board size. It quickly and gently heats the underside of the PC board to minimize the heat applied from the top side and attains lead-free processing temperatures faster, with no possibility of board warpage or component damage. Advanced software automatically generates profiles on line or visually in real time for all solder and desolder processes.

Included is a selection of nozzles for placement, soldering and solder removal, for which a vacuum pen is also provided, as well as a flux pen and a paste dispensing unit for resoldering. Data logging with QC reporting function is optional.
