Multi-purpose flexible rework focused on precision and simplicity
PDR’s IR-E3 series of SMD/BGA IR rework systems are engineered to cope with the challenges of repairing today’s PCB assemblies. The systems use PDR’s patented Focused IR technology, the world’s only technology that uses Dual-band Visible IR Heating. The light that heats.
The stations are nozzle free, gas free, clean, simple and easy to use. Each model is designed for precise control to produce 100% yield of your SMD/BGA rework without complications. The keys are accurate closed-loop thermal feedback and intuitive easy to use software. The IR-E3 series provides extremely high levels of profiling and process control necessary for the effective rework of the most advanced packages, including SMDs, BGAs, CSPs, QFNs, LEDs, Flip-chips, 0201-01005s and all lead-free applications.
The PDR IR-E3 systems are available in 3 models – E3S, E3G and E3M – each configured perfectly for their respective roles.
Developed from PDR’s pioneering IR rework stations from the 1990-2000s, the IR-E3S, is the standard of the E3 Series. Featuring: Focused IR Component heating, 2250w 2-zone IR PCB preheating, precision mechanics, precision optical alignment and advanced thermal control. The E3S system is flexible, upgradeable and ideal for general purpose SMD/BGA rework on small-medium sized PCBs.
Enhanced, the E3G adds superior thermal control and twin cameras for precision alignment and process observation. Non-contact pyrometers focus on the component and the PCB, for thermal feedback to auto-profiling ThermoActive V7 software. With camera input, the software also permits still and video capture. Mechanical advancements feature precision soft touch component pick up and placement. This system also features large IR 2800W 3-zone IR PCB preheating.
The PDR IR-E3G has been our top selling station for many years, a clear preferred choice of our customers worldwide. A versatile complete system that is ideal for a very wide range of SMD/BGA/ uBGA/CSP/LED applications on small-large sized PCBS.
Introduced in response to our customer demands, we took the E3G and further enhanced it for Micro-rework applications. In addition to general purpose applications, the IR-E3M’s thermal, mechanical and optical features are all precisely focused to easily deal with micro components and micro PCBs. In addition to the 3050w micro-PCB preheater, a 750w electronic Thermo Boost is included along with non-contact thermal control. High-magnification vision assisted component alignment, pick-up and ultra-fine placement complete the micro-process handling. This system is absolutely ideal for micro component-PCB rework without complications.
