Your BEST choice
In Solder Rework/Repair, Solder Training and Tools

October 2009 Vol. 2, Iss. 24

 

Dear Subscriber;

In our city life can go back to "normal" after Rio de Janeiro (congrats!) won the bid to host the 2016 summer Olympics. There has been over U$100M and lots of energy spent on this effort and it has been the "buzz" for quite some time here in the Chicagoland area.

Check out our web pages for leadless device rework. We expect our newly-patented "bumping" stencils -StencilMate(TM) to be released soon. In the meantime we are selling it as this package style is quickly becoming the new rework challenge of the development and build community we serve. Let us know if we can help you develop a process for the rework of QFNs, LGAs or other leadless devices.

Also check out the Halloween scare project I have highlighted below. A really comprehensive list for your ghoulish pleasure can be found here.
Happy Halloween!

Electronics Repair Services

BEST Inc  offers test and repair services as an extension of its expertise on board rework and repair.

Due to product price erosion and the increasing complexity of new products OEMs are introducing at ever-increasing rates, greater product repair and rework challenges are being created. These challenges include the management of personnel as well as warehouse and reverse logistics support.

Electronic test repair and refurbishment services are available from BEST Inc. For some companies a new outsourced backend services delivery model has been developed. This is one where the customer experience is owned and delivered by the OEM. A 3rd party service provider such as BEST, through its repair service group, delivers whole unit repair services.

As another option BEST can support your legacy electronic repair and services leaving your technical services group to support ongoing service issues.

You can buy the barrel by searching the Yellow Pages under "Barrels & Drums - Used". The rest is a simple fog machine, some glow in the dark stickers, a mask, some glow-in-the-dark paints and a little bit of time.

The details on this project.
