SMD rework is a challenging task, but this rework station helps you get it done. With 300W of power and a selection of tip sizes, it allows you the precision and flexibility required to get it done. By using hot air rather than a soldering iron, you provide a more uniform heat transfer and can melt all solder pads at once, providing a method to remove the chip safely and effectively. You can then clean up the PCB, and use soldering paste (not included) to solder your new chip in place. Temperature selection is done via the digital display and push buttons, while air flow is controlled via the rotary dial. The base unit features an integrated dock for the blower to keep it from burning anything, which also puts it into automatic sleep mode. Lift the blower and it will quickly come back to temperature.
