OK International Launches the MFR-1300, Next Generation of Standalone Desoldering Equipment

OK International is pleased to announce the launch of the MFR-1300 Desoldering System, part of its next generation of standalone desoldering equipment. The system builds on existing MFR technology by incorporating a new innovative design that allows the hand-piece to be used in two configurations. The user is therefore able to swap the grip on the hand-piece from the standard pencil-grip to a pistol-grip style, making the MFR-1300 extremely flexible for a variety of different applications.

The MFR-1300 has a unique power supply, featuring an internal pump which provides 0.7 bar (21in Hg) of vacuum suction force combined with Smartheat® Technology, renowned for its productivity-boosting response and control. This feature ensures through-hole desoldering is as simple as possible and ensures products are safe from damage. Other benefits of the system include a dual switchable output enabling the user to operate one or two different hand-pieces for high versatility.

The introduction of the innovative replaceable collection chamber means that downtime is reduced even further, allowing for a quicker changeover. Andy Cotton, OK International Product Manager, commented "The MFR-1300 also benefits from increased solder collection capabilities; it has been increased by 40% from the previous MFR desoldering systems, significantly increasing efficiency."

The system will be available in Europe from July 2011, the Americas from August, 2011, and Asia from September 1st 2011.
