Taking surface mount board repair to new levels of performance and affordability, Manncorp has introduced the RW1210 rework system. An enhanced touchscreen user interface now contains selectable operating modes that fully automate removal, placement and soldering sequences for increased operator efficiency. The RW1210 includes an enlarged board holder to handle extra-large PCBs up to 430x360mm (17x14.25").
Best of all, the RW1210 is supplied complete for only $14,995 and, out of the box, includes everything needed to tackle today’s most challenging surface mount board repairs.
The RW1210 comes standard with a 1.3m pixel, split-vision CCD camera and a 15” 1080p high-resolution display. Joystick-controlled zoom with 230 times magnification and high-brightness LED lighting provide ultra-clear, superimposed views of component leads and PCB solder pads for easy alignment using ultra-fine X, Y, and Θ axis micrometers. In conjunction with its high-precision Z-axis drive mechanism and automatic height sensing, the RW1210 provides the ±0.01mm placement accuracy needed for 0.3mm (0.012") lead pitch µBGAs and delicate QFPs.
Five hot air nozzles are included, selected by the customer from a full assortment available for components from 2x2mm to 55x55mm. The nozzles direct hot air from the 1,200W upper heater to the component and adjustable air flow control prevents even the smallest chip components from shifting during reflow. The 1,200W bottom heater, essential for BGA repair, is surrounded by a 2,700W, rapid IR underheater that quickly and efficiently heats the entire bottom surface of the PCB to prevent board warpage, reduce cycle times and limit temperature exposure.
The RW1210’s multi-level, password-protected software includes sample temperature profiles for both lead-free and eutectic solders. These can easily be modified to suit different rework applications and then stored in the programme library for later use. Set temperature versus actual temperature profiles measured through the unit’s built-in thermocouple input can be recorded and exported to a flash drive connected to a USB port on the front of the machine.
Manncorp offers free, on-site installation and training on the RW1210, which is also backed by a full two-year parts warranty and unlimited factory support.
