Welcome to BGA Rework Stations website.
On BGA Rework Stations.com (this website), I'll tell you, from 35+ years of experience in electronic service fields, and from my last 10+ years on research, to buy a real professional BGA Rework Station. I don't found one. Instead, I found the fact that a real professional BGA Rework Stations doesn't exist. The real professional BGA Rework Station are not invented... Yet...
"Go where there is no path and leave a trail for other to follow." I do not pretend that I'm best or worst that others, what I'll pretend is the fact that I express my opinions from a scientifically - technologically points of view. The common sense say that this is the right way. If you are a guy that think that for you not exist more mysteries in the electronics, this website is not for you. For the rest of the electronics professionals you are welcomed to take a look, read all information with patience and attention. At the last, please take your own conclusions.
You are an electronic service shop, a hardware developer, a component manufacturer, an electronics device warranty representative, aviation electronics, space electronics, boats electronics, F1 cars electronics… You name it what you are, you need one or more Real Professional BGA Rework Stations. It is a must. You search all over the internet and see… A huge amount of “Professional BGA Rework Stations“. Prices $200 to $120,000 ($120,000 – ERSA HR-600 XL garbage, I think that exist some Chinese garbage in this price range…). All “well-known”, “professional manufacturers” claim that will sell you a Professional BGA Rework Stations. But… this is a simple and false affirmation! Any affirmation need to be demonstrated / proved.
Well… No proves! On this website, I’ll dismount all that affirmations based on pseudo things that you’ll see all over the internet.
Nowadays “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers” use same copy / paste errors based in direct temperature transfer method. Both hot air, Black-IR, MWIR, Hybrid and so on techniques, use that world’s worst ever practice approach. At the world’s worst practice approach chapter, I’ll count here only few attributes. Highest ever inertia (that attribute, make that approaches uncontrollable).
The temperature transport medium (air – nitrogen) are the worst ever temperature transport medium (have the lowest thermal energy power transfer). In fact, the air (gases in general) are ones of the best thermal insulators.
The Black-IR (LWIR part of the IR electromagnetic energy spectrum), have some weird characteristics, low range of radiated pattern, huge inertia of the emitter (that fact make this type of emitter uncontrollable). You have another example from PDR-Rework aberations about “focused light” Read more…
On the bottom heater (preheater, as philosopher guru’s name it), we will see the same world’s worst ever practice approaches. Nothing about how the science interpret the Tg – point, nothing about the methods that are empowered to heat a PCB. All “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers”, in same wrong path use hot air, hot nitrogen, Black-IR (LWIR), MWIR to heat a PCB.
These methods are the same methods that you’ll use in your cousin to make some popcorn, pizza or another food. In fact, the NASA use the hot air in his space lab to heat pizza, hamburgers and so on.
The biggest crazy thing is that this pseudo manufacturers even don’t ask they himself if when I’ll change a resistivity on a PCB, I MUST preheat that PCB??? My opinion is that are not necessary. Any intent of heating (preheat) a PCB does only bad things, put in highly risk / danger the vias on the entire PCB / board. More about that aberrations… Read more…
Almost all (in fact all that use contact thermocouples), “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers” use the world’s worst ever thermocouple to measure the temperature among PCB (the BGA / component temperature they can’t measure with that contact garbage).
That thermocouple has a huge error, so… no accuracies. In fact that thermocouple is used on metal kilns, ceramics kilns or whatever another place where is needed high temperature / low accuracy temperature measurements.
From the entire thermocouples’ pallet, contact sensors pallets, all they are stacked on the world’s worst ever thermocouple type… The K-type thermocouple. They haven’t even common sense logics in their aberrational, approaches, use a thermocouple that can withstand more than 1200 °C on a 250 °C appliance. They completely ignore the lowest accuracies of that type of thermocouple type, the instability and huge inertia. Read more…
Some of the “well-known, professional, even some Chinese manufacturers” take in account that MUST read the real BGA / chips temperatures on a non-contact manner (in contact manner it is impossible to read the temperature due to the fact that you’ll move the chip / BGA from his place). For that reason, they “implement” the non-contact IR sensors on their garbage’s.
So far, so good. But all they that try these implementations completely forgot about a weird parameter that all materials from that world have… The infrared emissivity factor.
That infrared emissivity factor, it is present at all materials from this planet, and it is influenced by material type, color of the material, texture of that material. The worst thing is the fact that this emissivity factor can have a wide variation. That IR emissivity factor can vary from 0.1 to 0.96 in practice. So, a real temperature value about 100 °C, you’ll can read on a non-compensated IR non-contact sensor from 1 °C to 96 °C. Read more…
The Tg – point it is the greatest forgotten when we speak about BGA Rework Stations. That Tg – point represent not only what from scientifically point of view are defined as the point where the PCB goes from glassy like state to a rubbery like state. The Tg – point represent a flection frontiers between world worst ever practice and words best ever practice approaches.
That Tg – point is almost sure unknown for all “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers”. For more than 60 years all “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers” sell all over the world electronics product already destroyed from manufacturing stage.
Until these days, doesn’t exist at least one from a scientific point of view study that purpose the behavior of the vias on a PCB that are heated at 250 °C. Doesn’t exist same kind of studies due to the fact that all they “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers” doesn’t pay attention at the huge risk… Read more…
It is not important for all them “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers” that some standards say something about maximum 8 °C or ± 4 °C of non-uniformity of temperature among the entire PCB or BGA / chips. The standards are not made for them. They have their own non-standards on PCB heating zones.
Some of them use two zones heating popcorn machines, others (that are the majority) have three zone PCB heating pizza machines that try to sell us as “Professional BGA Rework Stations”. The stupidest “well-known manufacturer” try to sell us an artifact that have 64 heating zones. The winner is… KURTZ-ERSA with HR 600 XL, the “big” crap.
Only because they (KURTZ-ERSA) think that can, they want to be on top (they think in good part of that top), with not less than 64 heaters that they think that can individually control. None of them can control correctly even one PCB heating zone, the temperature MUST be very uniform among entire PCB. Read more…
All “well-known, professionals, Chinese manufacturers” stuck the board, the PCB in some fixed fixtures. That rigid fixture doesn’t let the PCB dilate and contract in function of temperature. As consequence, the PCB, the board will bend, and you will have the common occasion to try to mount a plane BGA / chip on a curved PCB / board surface.
That is one of the most common mistake that can be found on all world’s worst ever practice. But… A very interesting thing, appear after that I’ll start this informative campaign.
PDR-Rework!!! Change his fixed support to a some elastic support (that gentlemen’s discover the spring!!!). Nothing bad until now. But… They clearly demonstrate that have nothing to do with the science, with the technology, with the simple logic. They use only one spring in only one corner of their fixture! So if until now the PCB bend uniform… Now will bend… Nonuniform. That gentlemen’s are a miracle in illogics. Read more…
For the “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers” is not enough the fact that use the world’s worst ever approach to heat the PCB / BGA, they are using hot air for that purpose. But… They go further with the marketing aberrations in his aberrational fights to sell with any price.
They observe that in the titanium welding are used argon (an inert gas) to prevent the rapid oxidation at high temperature of the titanium. Furthermore, they transpose that approach in BGA Rework Stations. As consequence way they think that with some inert gas, in that case nitrogen, they can prevent the oxidation of tin. Seems to have some logics… Or… not…?!
Not. On that particular process of a BGA soldering, the inert gas (the nitrogen) can’t flow between the BGA and PCB where are situated the balls due to a simple physically theory that say something about the fluids’ equilibrium. You can’t break that equilibrium when you blow from all sides nitrogen, air remains between PCB and BGA in… a perfect…equilibrium… Read more…
The second word’s worst ever practice approach is the Black-IR (LWIR). Many of the “well-known, professionals, Chinese manufacturers” use this type of direct heat transfer method. I’ll speak many times about direct temperature convection as the worst practice ever when we want to heat some materials.
As they (“well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers”), doesn’t know or use the science or / and technology on his popcorn machines, they use the direct temperature convection with all inconvenient that this approach it has.
As they all are real artists in the use of the world’s worst ever practice, the use of LWIR are something normal for them. It is not important that this temperature direct convection is uncontrollable, it is not important that they achieve all aberrational reworks profiles, it is not important that have an interminable inertia. That truly is important for them is the fact that this method heat a PCB or a chip. It is not important if it is good or bad. Read more…
When I can think that the aberrations can’t be further developed, The “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers” make a step forward in front of my nightmare imagination and prove that the “universe and human stupidity are infinite” Albert Einstein.
Can you imagine the fact that if you must bet the first two worlds’ worst ever practice approaches, you can?! How??? Simply, you combine that first two worlds’ worst practice approaches in one! And invent the Hybrid technology.
And the winner… is… the BIG KURTZ-ERSA HR 600 XL!!! That guys set out to surpass all and everything in the world’s worst ever practice and approaches. From far they are my favorite in that stupidity marketing in selling with all price any bullshit. So… the KURTZ-ERSA are setting out the super mega hyper Hybrid to-heater that can burn all kind of materials. They have enough power both on hot air and Black-IR – LWIR / MWIR to heat any black material with IR and metallic materials with hot air. Read more…
That amount of the world’s worst ever practice approaches are the common denominator that represent all “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers”. As your easy can see, I put all that energumens in quotes and accentuate with bold and italic stiles this pseudo names.
That attributes, well-known, professional, manufacturers and so on, are self attributed from thyself aberrational illogical points of view. The worst thing ever is that nowadays you can’t trust in these words because these words were denatured. But in the same time represent a huge consumer / buyer attitude.
A huge amount of all that bought one or more garbage from that pseudo manufacturers, are buying from “well-known” policy point of view. That policy is the worst ever policy when we want to buy something. We must be good informed, well documented before that we buy garbage like that. If not, we will pay the highest price, we can’t work with it. Read more…
As all they (“well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers“), can’t control their brain-less artifacts, they all invent the world’s ever weirds rework profiles. For they were not important, the flux, flux paste oxidation point, oxidation time. It is not important the time / temperature above liquid point of the tin that are manufactured the balls. In fact, theoretical rework profiles for all of them doesn’t exist.
Furthermore, for all “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturer” it is not important to ask himself if the theoretical rework profile have any value, if that theoretical profile is good or bad, if it has any connection with the reality or the guys from JEDEC or IPC have something in common with the best practice in soldering.
The easy way is to pollute all internet mediums with all kind of stupid images, stupid advices, world’s worst ever possible practice, illogical points of view. Read more…
I’ll demonstrate all over this website that “well-known, professionals, Chinese manufacturers” are manufacturing all the world’s worst ever bullshits that the humanity can manufacture. All they are in the opposite side of all science and technologies, they are in the pseudo-science, pseudo technologies side of the manufacturing.
But, some of them have awards, PDR-Rework, KURTZ-ERSA, and any others I think. Who the hell and for what they give awards at that garbage’s?! The electronics sciences are changed without that, I’ll know?! What a type of energumens with amputated brain can be when give an award to one of that garbage?!
Somebody on that awards company are able to think?! Or the awards can be bought?! If the awards can be bought, I want to buy a dozen to put them in the WC, for cleaning purpose. Can you imagine that the PDR-Rework have awards (two consecutive years if I remember correctly)?! Read more…
Almost all “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers” have one. Have one “IPC Certificate”. Until some time ago, I was happy with my more than 35 years in the electronics service, reverse engineering fields. But, with some times ago, when I start the garbage / bullshit documentation, I see some strange logos on many of the websites that I’ll read.
These logos are the IPC logo. That logos have a special place on any of the websites that use them. All they use that logo’s to prove the “quality” of their products. So… for me was another unproved affirmation. As I’ll was accustomed to unproved affirmations, I’ll start some small researches to see what is that IPC.
What I find about IPC, for me, was incredible. In some few words, for me seems that the IPC are one of the oldest pyramidal game ever. Some salesmen’s affirm that they teach the electronics professionals… electronics. The stupidity of that affirmations let me down. It is impossible… Read more…
As your easy can see all over this website – bga-rework-stations.com and all over another website that I have bga-rework-station.com (you easily can see the difference between singular and plural of “station / stations” words), I use the expression “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers” in quotes.
I use that expression on that mode to underline the opposite facts, the facts that none of them are well-known (or can be well-known for the world’s worst ever practices, lies, cheats and so on…), have nothing about professional and of course they all can be only garbage manufacturers.
On my researches, between them, I don’t find even one real professional BGA Rework Stations manufacturer. That fact was a real surprise for me and give me the opportunities and challenges to start my own research and development about some real Professional BGA Rework Stations, based on science, technologies, world best practice ever on BGA-Rework-Station.com. Read more…
As “well-known manufacturers”, the “Chinese manufacturers” catch that business on the fly. They start with the niche that almost none “well-known manufacturers”, the under $10,000 niche. Here on under $10,000, exist only few “well-known manufactures”, Zephyrtronics, some Pace and whatever else that can’t cover that niche.
As the Chinese are well-known to copy / paste all kind of technologies in the world’s worst ever practice approach, they continue their stilling abilities in that tools, the BGA Rework Stations.
With their money hungry policy, they can “manufacture and sell” popcorn machines as low as $200. After that, they cover the entire lowest that $10,000 niche, give a shot at greatest desires and start fighting at all price levels with “well-known manufacturers”. That attitude is normal and predictable. They can copy and paste, cheaper, all errors from that world. Read more…
That part is one of my favorite part from all aberrational parts that I’ll discover all over the internet. On Google first pages, you can encounter plenty of gurus, you need only time to read all aberrations about electronics. But as Einstein say…
“Only the universe and the human stupidity are infinite, I have some doubt about universe…”
The stupidity populate about 99% of internet. The worst case for us that are not stupids, it is the time that we’ll spend on our interminable searches for some real and usefully information that on some place on internet exists. We are condemned to interminable hours spent in front of the world’s greatest stupidity invention. The internet. When we’ll invent the internet, even in our worst nightmares can’t imagine what the internet was after about 20 years in the future. Never ever I can understand so many peoples are so stupids in same time, same universe. But from that stupidity, some guru’s win a huge amount of money. Read more…
I’ll start with PDR-Rework from the simple fact that I want in the paste to buy one garbage like that. At that time, I was ignorant. Initially, I see that they are the black sheep from that amputated brain heard of “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers“.
At a first superficial point of view, their approach catches my attention. In fact, between all that heard of amputated brains, PDR-Rework it is the only one that has some intuition about the world’s best ever practice approach, about the part of the electromagnetic energy that is almost the best practice approach to heat something in BGA Rework Stations.
The NIR / SWIR and some MWIR. But here (at intuition chapter), their luck is ended. The pseudo scientifically, pseudo technologically the world’s worst ever approaches, cancelled their initial intuition. The PDR-Rework are the clearest example when we’ll speak about aberrations. Read more…
KURTZ-ERSA, the second review that you’ll must read. They have the “well-known – professional” HR 600 XL at higher price that a well tuned Mustang – $110,000. At least one specimen of that overpriced popcorn machine was sold to a USA company that were very proud with his acquisition.
This is a clear example of brainless “well-known manufacturer” buying approach and spending on the wind $110.000 from a company packet. I’m pretty sure that the guys or girls that do this acquisition were promoted to more important jobs.
But… for you, that only dream for the moment to spend that amount of money in the more expensive garbage from today market, before that, you can take a look on the special page that I’ll write here, and be well documented, good informed about what they sell at Ferrari price, garbage, that as they are “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers included” it affords to sell you with all lies, cheating and so on. Read more…
In a country that give the Rolling Stone, in a country that put the man on the moon, in the country that is the spirit of democracy, exist PACE. That fact represent the power of that democracy, even in the USA exist “well-known manufacturer” that compete at world worst ever BGA Rework Stations title.
Like PDR-Rework, KURTZ-ERSA, Pace claim tradition (60 years) on electronics soldering industry. The only thing that they learn in that 60 years are the prices. Well… Pace are the only one “well-known, professional manufacturers” that have the prices on his website.
God save our souls, what a price it has for some huge overpriced popcorn machines, pizza machines, Santa Claus cousin. For me all, but all “well-known, professional manufacturers” remain a black hole. How can they all imagine that they can sell the same garbage that are manufactured by Chinese manufacturers at a fraction of their prices?! But… The Chinese manufacturers catch the policy and manufacture / sell their garbage… Read more…
Finetech – another overpriced garbage manufacturer. Over all… Finetech buy Martin “technologies” to sell not the weird ever sounds but the weird shape ever. Now the Finetech have the portfolio complete in his fights for the world’s worst ever practice approach on his selling fights in the “well-known manufacturers”.
Finetech has the brilliant idea to copy / paste the world’s worst ever practice approach from Zephyrtronics, the “air bath” aberrations. Not only that, the Finetech copy that aberration but took that to the next level. They invent… “air bath jacuzzi”. So that assure you that your PCB will die in a dignified mode, in a jacuzzi.
Personally, I can’t stop to ask me what a hell can exist on the head of that gentleman’s?! They all think that all we are only professional ignorant’s?! That gentleman’s think that all we have the brain amputated?! Or (almost sure) that they think that all are good enough to be used in the electronics soldering process. Now the wave of ignorance is broken. Read more…
Zephyrtronics – another big shame for the honor of a country that put the man on the Moon. In fact, they are the biggest shame for the USA. Not only that, they manufacture the world’s worst ever “BGA Rework Station” on this planet, but… Claim that the NASA use their garbage to manufacture satellites, Mars rovers and so on.
If that fact it is true, I am a priest. That levels of manipulations, lies, cheats are not encountered on any other garbage manufacturer. I ask myself if the NASA know something about that attitude that this gentleman’s use to sell garbage’s with NASA logo on them. I’ll bet that the NASA are ignorant about that.
Put on same level, the PCB heating with 400 °C when the Tg – point are between 135 °C to 250 °C represent the world’s worst ever practice approach, and NASA world’s best ever practice approach on any of their projects, for me are the world’s best / great ever aberration possible. That is the best example on how MUST not be manufactured a tool and publicity for that tool. Read more…
“Advanced Techniques US Inc. (ATCO) is proud to offer a variety of precision equipment for professional circuit board equipment applications. We are committed to our customers, and provide long-term support with repairs, training, and the SMT (Surface Mount Technology) equipment installation in the industry. Proudly manufactured in the United States, PCB (Printed Circuit Board) machines and surface mount soldering equipment prevent a variety of typical issues associated with inferior circuit board equipment.“
That aberrations you’ll meet on the homepage of this garbage manufacturer. They are proud that manufacture that garbage in the USA. Nothing bad until now. The bad thing is that they lying / cheating you with the affirmation that their garbage are part of “Professional BGA Rework Stations”.
In fact, they are in the same usual path with Zephyrtronics, Pace and more garbage manufacturers that are proud to manufacture garbage in the USA and KURTZ-ERSA, Finetech… Read more…
Chinese garbage manufacturers, here’s a long, long story to write to be honest with them. At the beginning of their stories, they fill an empty space left by the “well-known, professional manufacturers”. That space is the less $10,000 “BGA Rework Stations” prices range. As the Chinese manufacturers have accustomed us, they can manufacture garbage (same garbage as “well-known, professional manufacturers”) at lowest prices.
That is normal, but… In the last time, the Chinese manufacturers touch the Ferrari prices that have the “well-known, professional manufacturers” in the $10,000 to $120,000 prices range. With a few thousand of dollars less, they learn to compete with all other manufacturers comparing step by step, part to part their Chinese garbage with “well-known, professional manufacturers” garbage.
And the Chinese manufacturers… Win! It is normal to pay less for the same garbage… Or not…?! The important fact is that the Chinese manufacturer use the same methods to sell… Read more…
Of course that the Chinese manufacturers don’t afford to manufacture in the United States of America. And they don’t need that, they need to sell in the USA. For that purpose, they offer huge “discounted” prices for “distributors” in the Europe and USA. That approach seems to work like a charm. Let analyze how it works.
On the USA exist (for me, already famous) a gentleman that claim on all social reds that sell more than 200 pcs of Chinese garbage to every famous / well known manufacturers of electronics components. Furthermore, that gentleman affirms that the Xilinx include them as reference on theirs datasheets.
That fact hit me with a big offense on my brain, and I’ll do some simple researches. That affirmation, it, is ungracefully true. The Xilinx company include them as reference on an only one datasheet. The mistakes are common, even when we are speaking about Xilinx. But seems that that mistake wasn’t repeated on another datasheet… Read more…
When we’ll speak about professional BGA Rework Stations, we’ll speak about a highly qualified tool, a high performance toot that can be used with success to unmount and mount a chip / BGA on a PCB, with the respect as some standards already have.
It is supposed that that kind of tool have the science, the technology, the inventions / innovation fights between well-known professional manufacturers to conquer us, the potential clients. We’ll expect that they, the well-known, professional manufacturers, have the engineers, that use the scientifically, technologically, word’s best practice approaches and warranty is that what they manufacture / sell are the proper approaches for our job.
In change to our expectations, we’ll have pseudo-science, pseudo technologies, world’s worst ever approaches. The engineers that all “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers”, all they seem that have the brain completely amputated, using only their paper certificate to lie, cheat us. Read more…
From my opinion, my personal point of view when somebody purpose me to use an overpriced (Ferrari price) popcorn, pizza machine or Santa Claus cousin to unmount and mount a BGA / chip on a PCB, that is an insult of my intelligence, it is a lack of common sense and a clear representation for that mean subunitary IQ (IQ<1). We, the human specie, generally have that IQ around 100 (even Sharon Stone it has the IQ around 165!!!).
But as they (well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers) have closest to 1 the IQ, have the prices more and more broken from the reality. When they have zero science, zero technology, zero best practice and zero all… They invent the selling of that zero at Ferrari price. To sell garbage at Ferrari price, you’ll need… Balls.
Furthermore, they not only touch the level that they sell zero at the Ferrari praises, they touch the performance to sell pseudo-science, pseudo technology, world’s worst ever practice approaches at same Ferrari prices. God, bless our souls. Read more…
A Real Professional BGA Rework Stations it is a MUST-have and have been with MUST have best practice, science, technology, common sense.
All “well-known”, “professional manufacturers” claim that his garbage use the best technologies, use best practice, have the highest accuracy, have science, warranty, support, yields 99%, best practice, the best approach and so on. In fact, they have / use pseudoscience, pseudotechnology, promiscuity, lies, unfulfilled promise and more… As their behavior to make affirmations, I’ll make above affirmations but unlike them… I will demonstrate / argue / prove, all my affirmations on this website about BGA Rework Stations and more.
I have two sites, bga-rework-station.com and bga-rework-stations.com. If you pay attention you will see that are not same websites! First (bga-rework-station.com it is singular…) and second one (bga-rework-stations.com – it is plural) On that two site I’ll start a free to use information campaign for you. Why I do that?! Simply… With more than 10 years ago, I’ll search to buy a Real Professional BGA Rework Stations. After a superficial (many months…) search, I decide to buy one… $70,000 – a PDR Rework garbage. Now, after more than 10 years, I look behind, and I’ll see that at the time when I want to buy that garbage… I was an… IGNORANT.
But that ignorance, not was from my fought, was due to the lack of information all over the internet! Without easy / clear / accurate information, I’ll have the tendency to believe all aberrations that all “well-known”, “professional manufacturers” claim about BGA Rework Stations.
At that time, I don’t buy my “dreamed” BGA Rework Stations due to a simply… fact. I don’t have enough money at that moment, meantime while collect enough money, I’ll start my researches about BGA Rework Stations from scientific / technological point of view. This save my pockets at that time, but… years later… destroy my packets. From my math, nowadays exist on the market, brought, more than 100,000 pcs. Of garbage. Exist more than 100,000 guys that destroy BGA’s / PCB’s all over the world. Equally, what they say (perfect rework, control, advices and so on)… That garbage can’t be controlled. Can’t be accurate. All this because the science say that about what they name… BGA Rework Stations.
Many, many of them are crying on various “professional” (nothing professional) forums and catch wisest ever advices from guys that know nothing about electronics. The internet become a jungle where you have the real possibility to lose two most important things… Time and money. So many gurus (with only bullshit in what they say…) are on the internet that you are tempted to believe them. They’re speaking about all, included BGA Rework Stations subject. Please remember some facts… You can unmount and mount a BGA Chip with many devices, cook top machines, pizza machines, popcorn machines, barbecues and you name it. With all that tools, you can unmount and mount a BGA chip in an uncontrolled manner.
If you have some luck… it is possible that all will work on the fly. That mean that all that improper machines are a Professional BGA Rework Stations?! No. The electronic it is a science, it is an accurate science. A BGA Rework Stations is a tool that MUST have the science at his base and reply in scientifically way to the Rework process. The rest are… garbage. The electronic science doesn’t work with luck. So… Gentleman’s… To surf this webpage, you can use the menu…
Now, when I’ll write these reviews and try to organize them, I’ll see that all (three reviews until now) have in common one error, the biggest ever error in the world, that make it possible the fact that for more than 35 years it is possible that all garbage’s that are named BGA Rework Stations can be sold / bought, all over the world. For me, it is unbelievable that an entire world doesn’t know to heat a PCB / board. Heating a PCB / board, it is the basic and the most important approach in BGA Rework Process / selective soldering. The way that you’ll heat the PCB / board are the first parameter / best practice / must-known to achieve the 100% repetitiveness / 100% yield.
The amazing situation is not that the users of “well-known manufacturers” BGA Rework Stations, doesn’t know to heat a PCB / board, the amazing of the situation is that all “well-known manufacturers” himself, even they don’t hear about, about Tg – point. What a shame, what a shame for an entire industry. Promoting tools that destroy PCB / boards are the ever worst, shameful situation for all self-named. “Well-known manufacturers”. You, that brought this garbage’s from the today’s days market are blindly trust in their affirmations. That was a huge error. This is the dark side of an entire industry.
I can understand the fact that all world manufacturers, with the marketing / publicity, manipulate the consumers / clients with some trues affirmations and some little trues gaps… But what I can’t understand it is how an entire world’s professional industry, can be manipulated with only lings, cheating’s, worst practice recommendations, false / fake affirmations about BGA Rework Stations. I can’t’t believe that professionals in the most qualified science in the world, the science that put the man on the Moon, the science that give the PC, iPhone, the electronics sciences, can be fooled by some amputated brain ignorant’s thefts. It is unbelievable.
Self-nominated – “Well-known manufacturers”, almost all with IPC certificates, “IPC Certificates” – a pyramidal game (like Delphine International, Lyoness and so on… Click or touch to go on Wikipedia) are made it only for money hungry persons that have nothing to do with the electronics industries / electronics sciences. They only sell fumes / dreams / illusions. They can’t teach you… anything to you, truly / real / professionals in electronics sciences, in electronics industry. You have your study’s diploma / certificate, you have your many years of experience. Can’t come in front of you some salesmen’s to teach you soldering… Let’s be serious, peoples! They are only cheating you. A salesman will teach you about BGA Rework Stations?!. A salesman’s can’t teach you anything!
The real problem that all “well-known”, “professional manufacturers” have, is the fact that they use inappropriate technologies to heat a BGA. That inappropriate technologies that they use to heat a BGA (a highly delicate / complex process), are used with success in other applications like cook tops, rooms heating, pizza machines, popcorn machines, Santa Claus cousin. That technologies can’t be use in a high quality rework process. They need to understand that these technologies, the first thing that they MUST understand is that technologies, MUST DO NOT BE USED IN A BGA REWORK PROCESS, IN A BGA REWORK STATION.
But… For all “well-known”, “professional manufacturers”, technologies are not important. The only thing that is important for them is MONEY. In fact, they stool from the honest buyer pocket a huge amount of money with only fake / false promises, aberrant logics, illogic invents, wrong / false / fake advices, the worst ever practice and so on. When a client claims the fact that can’t work with the BGA Rework Stations that they’ll buy, the answer is that the client must pay courses to work with that garbage, they say that is the client problem that doesn’t know working with that garbage.
In fact, with that garbage, nor God can work. This garbage is unusable in a highly qualified, highly specific, highly delicate, highly complex… Rework process.
On this website, I’ll analyze / review for you all pseudo technologies, all aberration, all lings, all cheating’s, from best-practice, common sense, scientifically, technologically point of view, that “well-known”, “professional manufacturers” use to stole money for you, that are real professionals and MUST have known before want to buy such a garbage, so before intent to buy one, you need to be well-informed, you need to be well documented. If not… After that you buy one, you will cry on various forums for help. Will be worst.
Nowadays, all real professional manufacturers, doesn’t have importance from what field (software, energy, cloth, house… you name it), seems that play somehow with our brain. If that is good or bad… Ii’s up to you. They, with his financial power, can employ any kind of studies about human buying behavior. From his studies, result that the best way to sell us something is… Create a brand, make this brand well-known for free, joint huge potential buyers together.
After all that, cut from free things and make it… paid things, and let some free things to maintain connected with the brand, the potential buyers, but… start to put at the potential buyer’s paid things. As I say above… It is up to you if that is good or bad, correct or incorrect, good policy or not good policy and so on.
What it is amazing / I wander… How that in a so highly specialized field, highly qualified field in a MUST-have field, not exist even one, even holly one manufacturer that put at our disposition a must-have tool for our necessities. This hole in the market is a huge possibility / opportunity for everybody to take under control the quality, science, technology, best practice and offer on a must-have market, a Real Professional BGA Rework Stations.
Refurbishment / chip shortage motto… At the time that I wrote this paragraph, I take a look on the Finetech garbage manufacturer to see a last minute change on his policy. It has a client that probably bought from Finetech one or many, Popcorn Machine, Pizza Machine or Santa Claus cousin. From what they (BMK-group /a German company!) affirm that they are professionals. Tons of chips, tons of repair and so on with Finetech “BGA Rework Stations“. I’ll never… ever mount on a board… A BGA Chip recovered with that garbage exist nowadays in the market. With garbage that are nowadays in the market, instead of extend / prolonging a chip’s life, you’ll short his life.
After that you tortured that chip with 350 °C – 400 °C, that chip with hot air (if survive…) will break net day, next week, next year… That policy, it is the worst ever policy on the money hungry companies that are willing to step above dead bodies to make money.
PDR-Rework – 591 – 4,500, Kurtz-ERSA – 2,300 – 14,500, Finetech – 2,220 – 16,900. Total – 35,900 X $10,000 each = $359,000,000. I’ll explain for you…
Only 3 “well-known, professional manufacturers” analyzed from pessimistic point of view, on past selling unites of the garbage that manufacture “BGA Rework Stations“. PDR-Rework are the only that claim 4,500 piece of “BGA Rework Stations” garbage that sell. Let’s approximate some therms…
PDR-Rework have 591 followers on YouTube. KURTZ-ERSA have 2,300 followers on YouTube. Finetech have 2,200 followers on YouTube. Let’s extrapolate the numbers (from theoretical point of view). PDR-Rework / 591 – followers – 4,500 garbage pcs sold. KURTZ-ERSA / 2,300 – followers – 16,900 garbage pcs sold. Finetech / 2,200 followers – 16,900 garbage pcs sold.
Total sold from that three garbage manufacturers – 35,900 garbage pcs “BGA Rework Stations” sold until now. For me, it is a low number, personally I think that in the world are more than 100,000 pcs of garbage sold.
Let’s suppose that 35,900 pcs of garbage “BGA Rework Stations” were sold with $10,000 every pcs. That give a total of $359,000,000 that the world spend in experiments to nowhere. But only for a moment we think that I’m right and that “well-known, professionals, Chinese” manufacturers, all of them… Sold 100,000 pcs. At only $10,000 on pcs. That give $1,000,000,000 that the electronics part of the humanity spend from his packets on inutile experiments to transform the pizza, popcorn machines, Santa Claus cousin and some barbecue machine in… Professional BGA Rework Stations.
What I’ll can’t understand is not the $1,000,000,000 that was spending in the world in that garbage’s. What I’ll really don’t understand is how it is possible that from that 100,000 persons / professionals / specialists and so on... none comment in public about the world’s worst ever approach on “BGA Rework Stations” on this planet!!! The only valid answer, that I’ll found, is the… ignorance.
Future more, what it is truly incredible is that from 8,000,000 persons on this wonderful planet, only one man… take into consideration all aberrations / errors that all “well-known, professional, Chinese manufacturers” make on BGA Rework Stations.
It is unbelievable what amount of money was used in a wrong way to develop and buy that aberrational technologies. On the same path… it is fabulous what little amount of money cost me (compared with them) to research and develop a true Professional BGA Rework Stations.
Thank you and, please…
