News Release from:
27 April 2012
OK International today announced that it has been awarded a 2012 EM Asia Innovation Award in the category of Repair/Rework Equipment for its Scorpion Rework System. The award was presented to the company during an April 26, 2012 ceremony in Shanghai during NEPCON China.
OK International’s new modular Metcal Scorpion Rework System allows for simultaneous viewing of Printed Circuit Board (PCB) pads and component pads or balls for the accurate placement of BGAs. The Scorpion can create specifically tailored reflow profiles through OK International’s unique convection heating technology with nozzle and dual-zone pre-heater in one user-friendly, single platform rework system.
The Scorpion incorporates numerous features that ease the learning curve for new operators while providing the power and performance expected from more experienced users. The patent pending SmartPlace Technology vision system employs dual image overlay technology providing an image of the solder balls and PCB patterns without the need for complicated prism alignment. The system is totally self-contained and ready to use once it is plugged into a power outlet.
