Chipper SMD-500


An affordable, totally integrated system for SMT rework and repair, the Chipper SMD-500 is an excellent choice in replacing older “Contact” rework tools with the latest Low Temperature Hot Air technology for reworking SMT components without damage, at a very attractive price.



Low Temperature Operation

Accurate closed-loop temperature monitoring of a patented High Power heater, reduces rework temperature below 432°F (222°C) and possibly below 400°F (204°C).

Automatic Lift Off

An automatic vacuum pick-up assembly lifts the part from the board once eutectic temperature has been reached and continues to hold the part during the systems cooling cycle.

Nozzle Selection

An appropriate size nozzle is easily installed and the correct temperature is selected. The workpiece is mounted in the board holder and the nozzle placed over the component allowing a gap of 1/8″ (3 mm) above the body of the component.

Automatic Vacuum Pick-up

The vacuum switch is turned on and the vacuum pick-up assembly is contacted to the top of the component body. The foot pedal is activated and when the component passes the eutectic temperature of 361°F (183°C), the component automatically lifts from the circuit board.

Cool Operation

Once the system is switched on, the Controller carries out a “Self Test” and the internal Blower Motor engages to provide a constant stream of high volume, low velocity cool air, which will not disturb or solder ball, within the rework area.

nozzBoard Holder

A standard 8″ x 8″ (203 x 203 mm) Board Holder is included for most board sizes, adjustable in all axis. A board release mechanism allows each board to snap into place and be quickly released when required. In addition an, on-demand, Z-axis clearance piston avoids profile obstructions, when locating to, or moving from the nozzle.
