IR-C3 Chipmate / Entry-Level SMD/BGA Rework Station

Available on backorder

Today there is a need for lower cost and upgradeable equipment without a loss in soldering quality. The PDR IR-C3 Chipmate SMT/BGA rework station, using PDR’s patented Focused IR technology, have been specifically engineered to meet this challenge.
The IR-C3 Chipmate comes with a good range of standard features allowing the operator to quickly, safely rework all types of components.
The station is tool free, gas free, instantly/precisely controllable, clean, modular and produces 100% yield BGA rework without any complications. The IR-C3 uses all the proven attributes of PDR’s Focused IR technology, first introduced in 1987 and now used worldwide by over 4500 customers.


Simple BGA rework procedure
BGA rework poses the problem of accessing hidden interconnects in a high density environment. Consequently, it requires a station that is able to access the hidden joints without affecting neighbouring components.A station that is safe, gentle, adaptable and, above all, simple to operate.
The IR-C3 Chipmate is such a station. It is so easy to operate that technicians are able to instantly achieve excellent process control for BGA/SMT rework without the complexities and frustrations normally associated with ‘high end’ rework stations.
The IR-C3’s standard features, with the use of simple aids, operators can simply pick up the BGA, align it, place it into fluxed pads and reflow with the station’s accurate closed-loop component temperature control.
