BGA DeSoldering & Removal
Demonstration With NASA Commentary:
short, helpful video demonstrates how to de-solder and remove Ball Grid Array
devices in less than 5 minutes. It introduces the
ZT-7000 Comprehensive BGA, SMD, QFN Hot Air
Benchtop System. Thermal profiling and ramping is taught
with preheating, soaking and final
reflow and removal of a BGA, QFN, CSP & SMD's. The
video includes board prep, chip aligning, fluxing,
soldering/desoldering and PCB clean-up and inspection.
also touches on quality inspection of the PCB after
rework. The viewer witnesses the BGA's solder reflow as
it actually lifts off the PCB! Additional
photographs and observations from NASA are included in
this helpful video. After the video, visit our

Importance of ramping, preparing the
PCB, applying solder paste, hot air
reflow of the SMD, clean-up &
inspection. See how easy using solder
paste instead of solder wire is. All

Video: The Science of Low Temperature Soldering &
In this amazing video
you will 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 three critical thermal zones that
encompass most PCB's during production and how
these same 3 zones apply to PCB's at a bench in
prototyping, rework and 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
along with comparative charts and graphs.
The 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
