The HR 550 hybrid rework system addresses all users with highest requirements in terms of precision and process safety in electronic assembly rework applications.
The HR 550 provides a 1,500 W high-performance hybrid heating element to desolder and solder SMT components up to dimensions of 70 x 70 mm! A 2,400 W infrared bottom heater with three heating zones guarantees homogeneous bottom-side preheating of the complete assembly. Non-contact and contacting temperature sensing directly at the component as well as an optimized process control guarantee ideal removal and installation processes of various component types. A high-precision vacuum pipette, integrated into the units heating head, operates component removal and placement. Stepper motors for the exchangeable hybrid heating head and the vacuum pipette supply exact movement during component desoldering and installation. An integrated force sensor recognizes when component and printed circuit board are contacted. Ergonomically arranged control elements and computer-aided component alignment by means of high-contrast, high-definition camera images are special highlights for the operator.

The HR 550 is prepared for operation with the Kurtz Ersa DIP&PRINT STATION. The rework system is operated via a newly developed software and ergonomically arranged operating elements on the station.
LHM NV located in Geel, Belgium, has been an established player in the electronics sector for many years. They specialise in the assembly of electronic devices and semi-finished products. Today, they employ 25 permanent staff who ensure precise finishing and strict quality control. They recently bought their third soldering machine from Kurtz Ersa. We had a talk with Johan Coomans, co-director of LHM. LHM can now call itself an international player in…
