Circuit Technology Center Doubles Component-Level Modification Services Capacity
Circuit Technology Center has purchased two additional robotic hot solder dip (RHSD) machines from Hentec. The Odyssey 1325 systems are MIL-spec complaint, high-volume, high-mix component lead tinning machines equipped with auto load/unload and is capable of processing dual solder alloys. These machines double the existing capacity to include four 4 Odyssey 1325 systems for component level modification services to meet the increasing demand from the defense and high-reliability customer base that requires component level modification/alteration for tin whisker mitigation, gold mitigation, and lead re-conditioning.

The equipment complies with all applicable GEIA-STD-006, J-STD-001, and IEC TS 62647-4 standards. This state-of-the-art equipment is also used for automated, touch-less BGA component de-balling, required as part of converting BGA’s with lead-free solder to tin-lead solder.

"For nearly 40 years, leading defense and aerospace companies have relied on Circuit Technology Center as the world leader in circuit board level modification and damage repair services," said Andy Price, Sales Manager at Circuit Technology Center. “We are thrilled to announce this capacity expansion, offering our defense and high-reliability customers component level modification and alteration services with the same level of exceptional quality and service that they have come to expect from our company.”
