When you require Component Harvesting Services we can handle the job. Whether it’s a BGA, SMT, DIP or Axial just to name a few, it’s no problem. See our large list of packages below to get a better idea of the packages we can harvest and then if needed reball or retin the component. We have a special custom made oven that uses a conveyor that will agitate the component loose to a catch screen, so we can rework your device of choice. We also have trained technicians who can hand remove with special temperature controlled heat guns the one part you want if you don’t want to remove all the components or have components that require a delicate touch. Depending on the job we will get it done right.
What is RoHS Conversion?
Through a process of hot solder dipping we are able to convert the terminals on IC or Passive component packages to a RoHS based solder.
What is Leaded Conversion?
We can convert a RoHS solder based device by adding a LEADED Non-RoHS solder to the terminals/pins for mainly the military or medical applications where higher reliability is required and authorized by industry standards.
What are the solders available that you can retin or reball with?
Our main choice for RoHS conversion is SAC305( Sn96.5 Ag3.0 Cu.5), but to list some other and some include lead depending on you needs are; Sn63 Pb37, Sn5 Pb93.5 Ag1.5, Sn96.5 Ag3.5 and we have worked with many customer requested solders to meet a special need.
What type of packages can you work with?
Bulk, Tape and Reel, Tube and Trays.
What can you do automated?
Trays can be automated via our robotic machine to handle the pickup/load to auto flux to solder dip to place back in tray/unload. All the parts in the tray can be handled without human touch.
Do you bake the parts to ensure no damage occurs during services?
Yes! We bake the parts prior to a job and after a job to ensure there is no moisture inside the parts. This is a critical step to keep the integrity of the parts throughout the job.
XRF testing, Solderability testing, S-CAM, X-RAY and many others. Please inquire about the specific testing service you’d like and we can quote it accordingly.
My ICs are on PCBs; can you salvage these and convert them to RoHS compliant , Leaded or your preferred solder?
YES. Most IC packages from all types of PCBs. We can safely salvage devices using specially developed controlled IR, Hot-air or by chemical solder removal with no or minimal stress on the salvaged device. Salvaged devices can then be converted.
Can you convert Discrete devices?
Yes. We can convert almost all discrete devices both active and passive provided their levels of banned substances (apart from Lead) are below their respective RoHS thresholds.
What IC, PASSIVE, BGA, DISCRETE and other component packages can you convert or repair?
Almost all IC packages can be converted to Pb-free. This includes BGA, PGA, TSOP, SSOP, QFP, SOIC, PLCC, CDIP, PDIP and customized packages.
