BGA and SMD Rework Stations

— also called SMT and SMD rework stations — play a critical role in printed circuit board repair and modification. As their names imply, rework stations are spaces where technicians can alter surface-mounted devices and circuit boards with ball grid array (BGA) packaging. This is useful for several refinishing and repairing applications, including removing defective components, replacing missing components, reversing components that were installed incorrectly, and more.

Many short-run or low-volume production operations also use BGA rework stations. Depending on the task and the system, they may offer partial automation capabilities, with or without the use of a connected PC.

All machines come fully self contained with their own internal air and vacuum unless otherwise specified.
