The Benefits of Focused IR Technology
IR enables you to precisely target the component to be heated, so adjacent components are not affected. The passive nature of infra-red heat also significantly reduces the risk of damaging the component or the PCB as compared to hot gas systems.
With a high build quality and no expensive nozzles, focus hoods or shields to purchase and replace on a regular basis, PDR's products are excellent value and have near-zero follow-on costs.
Our user-friendly software that allows even inexperienced operators to quickly achieve good results is a PDR hallmark. It provides accurate, non-contact component temperature sensing and can automatically create and store thermal profiles for different assemblies, including lead-free.
IR uses a lens and iris that can be adjusted to any shape or size component, simplifying the soldering/desoldering process for the operator. It also creates a red 'comfort' light that defines the area being reworked.
PDR systems are a future-proof investment. They are easily configured to meet any requirements and, should your needs change, they are easily upgradeable so you won't have wasted any money.
All PDR's systems are clean, simple and safe to use. IR is a passive heat, meaning you can pass a hand through the beam without injury. Ease of use means PDR's equipment offers a 100% yield process.
