OK International Superproducers Descend on Las Vegas


IPC APEX EXPO visitors to OK International booth #1482 can share the measurable Training, Application and Productivity advantages already delivered to the bottom line of hundreds of manufacturers worldwide by the company's popular range of soldering and production assembly technologies. The OK International team will be on hand to reveal how these operational advantages can transform every visitor into a Superproducer.

Among the innovative technologies on display delivering those advantages will be the sophisticated new APR-5000 XL/XLS Array Package Rework System. It now enables the simultaneous use of inner and outer preheaters which increase the productivity of the unit by reducing rework cycle time. Meanwhile, lowered nozzle temperature protects the component under rework to achieve the same required temperature with solder joints or balls and reducing BGA lid temperatures.

Also being showcased is the recently introduced MRS-1000 Modular Rework System that's already proving a highlight. This powerful high accuracy benchtop solution is ideal for processes requiring precise control such as the removal of delicate miniature SMT components.

Superproducers around the world have heralded the performance of the MFR-1100 Series Soldering Systems. With SmartHeat® technology at its core, the MFR-1100 Series raises power output without using excessive tip temperatures. Designed for flexibility as well as performance, the MFR-1160 can be used with Metcal SSC Cartridges, and a tweezer handpiece turns the MFR System into a rework tool.

"As North America's most prominent PCBA technology forum, APEX is the perfect platform from which to showcase our unique range of soldering and assembly technologies," explains OK International Marketing Manager, Jerry Simmons. "Not only will visitors have the opportunity to see some of our most innovative products in action, but they'll be encouraged to Take the Metcal Challenge....a blind "taste test" operating Metcal and competitive systems so they themselves may judge who offers truly superior soldering quality and performance."

Featured in the challenge will be the Metcal MX-5000 Soldering, Desoldering and Rework System. A high performance package for complex assembly challenges, the MX-5000 combines increased power with the company's exclusive SmartHeat® Technology to eliminate overshoot potential and maintain high productivity soldering and rework. Commanding high throughput and precision control, the MX-5000 also incorporates a built-in digital power indication display for continuous operator feedback and consistent, quality solder joints. Highly flexible and easy-to-use, the Metcal system measurably reduces training investment, extends application possibilities and boosts productivity.
