Flexible assembly unit repair

All types of SMD of 1 x 1 up to 40 x 40 mm can be processed. Flexible desoldering, placement and soldering of surface mounted devices (SMD), e.g. chips up to 0402, SOIC, MLF, CSP, µBGA, BGA, QFP, PLCC; plastic BGA components are a typical rework application for the IR 550 system; for QFP components an optional split optics cassette is available.

As nozzles are not required, even special components like shielding plates or plugs can be processed very well.
