Scorpion Rework System with SmartPlace Technology

The Scorpion Advanced Package Rework System ensures both accurate component placement and custom tailored reflow profiles in one user friendly, single platform rework system. 

The Scorpion Rework System fills challenges of array package rework with quick, accurate placement through the use of an all new vision system employing dual image overlay technology. This new vision system features LED lighting both top and bottom for shadow-free component visualization and component alignment. 

The two-head modular design allows the Scorpion Rework System to be tailored to the users specific rework needs and allows precision alignment of the smallest BGAs, QFNs and Micro SMDs with the highest accuracy. The open-ended board holder fits a wide variety of large, small and odd-shaped boards while allowing precise positioning over the patented dual subzone preheater. 

The standard auto-profile mode ensures fast and easy profile creation with a minimum of setup time. By selecting your temperature targets any operator can quickly and accurately create reflow profiles for a wide variety of boards, and then save them in memory for future use.
