The Chipper SMD-500 (220V Export Model)is used for low-volume SMT component PCB rework, PCB repair and prototyping.
SMT Prepair & Rework
The Chipper SMD-500 is an affordable, integrated system for SMT component PCB rework and repair. Replace older ?Contact? rework tools with the latest Low Temperature PCB rework technology for reworking SMT components without damage.
Lead Free Rework
For Lead Free rework and repair the Chipper can be used with an APE Bottom Heater featured on page 10.
PCB Rework Holder
A standard 8" x 8" (203 x 203 mm) PCB repair Holder is included for most PCB sizes, adjustable in every axis. A board release mechanism allows each PCB to snap into place and quickly released when required. In addition, a Z-Axis nozzle clearance piston avoids profile obstructions, when locating and clearing SMT components.
SMD-500 Nozzle Exchange Program
The SMD-500 also includes three (3) SMT component repair nozzles which can be included in a unique A.P.E. exchange program, allowing the User exchange any SMT rework nozzle for up to one year from purchase. See SMT Nozzle List detailed on page 22.
Automatic Lift Off
An automatic SMT component vacuum pick-up lifts the SMT component from the PCB once reflowed and continues to hold the part during the systems cooling cycle.
