Video: The Science
of High Quality, Low Temp Soldering & De-Soldering:
Video introduces essential PCB benchtop
tools, technique and the break-through, low temperature
science of Zephyrtronics In this video, learn how to successfully place, remove, rework
and repair innumerable SMD's and Thru-Hole devices
including ceramic capacitors, glass diodes, flex
circuits and resistors without damage to the substrate,
its pads, traces or the chips...when the "science" is on
Using animation and charts, the video teaches
the 3 critical thermal zones that impact
PCB's during production and how these same 3 zones apply
to PCB's at a bench in prototyping, rework/repair.

The 4 PCB Preheat Methods. This
comparative video juxtaposes the 4 current methods of
preheating PCB's spotlighting their drawbacks and
advantages. The viewer sees use of hot plates, infrared
(IR) preheating, industrial ovens and the popular
bottom-side forced convection (AirBaths™)
along with comparative charts and graphs.
video clearly demonstrates why bottom-side, forced convection method became
the first choice of electronic manufacturers around the globe, why it is
more effective and better suited to PCB prototyping, rework and low volume
production runs when
soldering & desoldering SMD, BGA, QFN & Thru-Hole chips. Duration: 9
Video shows board prep, fluxing, chip
alignment, soldering, desoldering & PCB clean-up
after chip removal. The video shows quality
PCB inspection. Viewer
witnesses desoldering a BGA as it
actually lifts off the PCB...hands-free!
