LED Rework System from Martin
LED rework station.
Wessling, Germany — Removing and replacing LEDs, even the smallest, requires flawless energy management — both from below and above — using hot air. These small light emitters are typically mounted on sizable metal-clad substrates for efficient heat dissipation, and they require uniform heat during rework. Despite such heavy component carriers, the heating phase should be kept as short as possible. The powerful Martin hybrid underheater is especially well suited for this purpose.

In contrast to the carrier material, the active parts of the LEDs can tolerate only relatively moderate exposure to elevated temperatures. Heat discoloration of the lenses can lead to the components becoming unusable. This can be avoided by using the Martin EXPERT 10.6 rework system, which combines powerful hybrid underheating, precisely controlled hot air top heating, and innovative Easy Solder software.

According to the company, these rework stations easily control all important parameters to ensure reliable rework of LED arrays.
