PDR to Unveil New Automated Rework System with uPID Technology at APEX

PDR, founded in 1985, and today a leading manufacturer of BGA rework systems and X-ray systems, will exhibit at the 2023 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place Jan. 24-26, 2023 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. The PDR team will introduce several new systems including the new IR-E5 Automated Rework System, upgraded E6XL and GenX90PDT XRAY System in Booth #3024. 

 The new IR-E5 Automated Rework System features PDR’s new Advanced Control System with uPID Technology and ThermoActive Suite Software Upgrade. The system offers advanced Thermocontrol and embedded Profile IQ assistant, gram force control for solder paste deposition, semi-automated machine vision component align/placement and automated component removal. Also, a newer form factor for this model to enhance Benchtop placement.  

The IR-E6 XL Evolution Series has been upgraded to include the New Advanced Control System with uPID Technology and ThermoActive Suite Software Upgrade. The system now has even more advanced Thermocontrol and embedded Profile IQ assistant. The IR E6-XL is an ultimate performance, BGA rework station for small to large PCBs up to 24″/620mm. 

PDR’s new integrated Print Part System and Reballing System for all PDR Evolution Series Rework Systems also will be available demos during the IPC APEX EXPO. PDR’s latest reball system now incorporates both solder paste application and reball sphere attach in one easy-to-use system, incorporating advanced nano-technology for a clean, high precision reball method for rework.

 The PDR Print Part System mounts directly to all PDR Evolution Series Rework platforms for direct vertical lift utilizing PDR’s Integrated Vacuum Pick Up Feature/Gram Force placement settings. Designed for integration into your rework process when using PDR Systems, the PDR Print Part System also can be used as a stand-alone device for general printing of solder paste to component.

From the X-ray Solutions side, the new GenX90PDT X-ray System will be on display. The 3D X-ray System utilizes DTS Technology to render 3D images. The System also eliminates the need for a flying head detector, which means the cabinet is smaller with less moving parts to maintain than conventional 3D X-ray systems, while still able to hold boards up to 21”.
