A look at the lat­est re­work sta­tions

There are nu­mer­ous in­no­va­tions hap­pen­ing around SMT re­work sta­tions, with man­u­fac­tur­ers com­ing up with new tech­nolo­gies that en­sure bet­ter pro­duc­tiv­ity.

Re­work sta­tions are used in the man­u­fac­tur­ing process to rec­tify the de­fects found dur­ing in­spec­tion. They are equipped to re­pair flawed com­po­nents in printed cir­cuit boards (PCBs). These prod­ucts are used a lot in bulk man­u­fac­tur­ing as the chances of de­fects oc­cur­ring are higher when the num­ber of prod­ucts be­ing man­u­fac­tured is huge.

The In­dian elec­tron­ics man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try is ex­pected to grow by leaps and bounds in the com­ing year with the enor­mous sup­port be­ing of­fered by the gov­ern­ment. Keep­ing this in mind, SMT play­ers in the coun­try can ex­pect sub­stan­tial growth.

To­day, one of the ma­jor chal­lenges in man­u­fac­tur­ing is to en­sure max­i­mum yields in the short­est pos­si­ble time, while keep­ing costs down. There­fore, SMT ven­dors are com­ing up with re­work sta­tions that en­sure zero de­fects and con­sume less time to do so. In this ar­ti­cle, we fea­ture some of the lat­est mod­els avail­able in the coun­try.
