IR Pre-heater Series
VJ Technologies Announces IR Pre-heaters with Advanced Control
News Release from:
VJ Technologies, Inc., announces its updated IR Pre-heater Series, designed to preheat assemblies that require additional heat to compliment manual soldering and desoldering of SMT, through-hole and other thermal applications.
VJ Technologiesí infrared pre-heaters provide the additional heat and control required for lead-free applications, especially for multi-layer circuits. The pre-heaters occupy minimal bench space and are ready for use. The total heated area is segmented into four selectable zones, efficiently directing energy at specific sized boards.
The IR Pre-heater Series is designed to work in conjunction with hand soldering and desoldering tools. IR Pre-heaters were developed for manual rework or for use with equipment, such as selective soldering systems for preheating boards to help eliminate board warping prior to rework. The pre-heaters also compliment underpowered rework systems lacking effective bottom heating.
IR Pre-heaters feature robust, flexible board fixtures that are easy to adjust. Spring-loaded board clips allow thermal expansion without bending boards. Many PCB tooling options are available, including four-sided board support, bottom board support, and extended reach board clips to accommodate odd-shaped boards with ease.
