OK International has launched the MRS-1000, a modular convection rework system for the removal and placement of BGA/CSP and SMT components.

The MRS-1000 is said to be a versatile system that comprises a handheld convection tool with an array of nozzles, preheater, adjustable tool holder with board holder, and light magnifier.

Capable of handling PCBs up to 12 x 12in or above using the standalone BH-1000 board holder, the manually-assisted rework system is equipped to process components up to 40 x 40mm, making it a flexible choice for the removal of delicate SMT components and other processes requiring increased control.

The system features programmability, a digital display, program storage of up to 50 profiles and adjustability.

The modular system features the HCT-1000 programmable handheld convection tool, equipped to remove and place SMT components.

Featuring digital controls, internal or external thermocouple feedback control, profile storage and integrated vacuum pick-up for component placement and removal, the HCT-1000 is a versatile convection tool.

The hand piece features vacuum and reflow buttons allowing the process to be operated manually or automatically, while the vacuum option incorporates automatic component lift off to further enhance process control.

The HN series nozzles fit applications reworking components of all sizes including BGAs, QFPs, LGAs, PLCC and SOIC.

The MRS-1000 also features the PCT-1000 programmable preheater, which enables users to increase heat capacity with highly controlled thermal output.

Delivering more heat to difficult boards, the preheater maintains high levels of thermal control while fast temperature ramp up enables faster production rates.

The PCT-1000 is equipped with the advanced heater design found on OK International rework systems.

Its convection heater creates a vortex effect that efficiently directs and concentrates heat.

Also included with the MRS-1000, the ATH-1000 adjustable tool holder features a board holder, locking hand-piece retainer, Z-axis stop and mounting configurations to extend the system’s flexibility.

The LM-1000 light magnifier features a 4x magnification lens and integrated LED lighting for shadow-free illumination.

OK International

OK International has been a leading manufacturer of tools for the electronics assembly work bench for more than 60 years.

OK International traces its roots back to 1946, when it specialised in precision machining of metal parts primarily for the defence industry. In 1996, OK acquired Metcal and Techcon Systems. These acquisitions, along with becoming part of Dover Corporation in November 2000, served to strengthen OK's core competencies in the manufacturing and development of soldering systems.

OK International now serves the needs of the electronics assembly market (under the Metcal brand for premium soldering and array package rework systems, and the OKi brand for mainstream soldering, convection rework, fume extraction and fluid dispensing products) and other industries through our Techcon Systems brand for precision fluid dispensing.

OK International also offers a technology called SmartHeat® Soldering. Unlike conventional soldering irons, SmartHeat® administers heat directly from the heater to the joint, which guarantees total temperature control. To solder a component onto a PCB, it is essential to use the correct level of thermal energy to produce the best quality solder joint.

Headquartered in California, and with global offices in the UK and China, we partner with more than 100 leading local distributors worldwide.
