In Solder Rework/Repair, Solder Training and Tools

Summer 2017

Dear Electronics Colleague -

It's hard to believe that summer is almost over. It seems like just yesterday that the beaches and pools were opening up!

This past summer, we had the opportunity to partner with a local community center and provide training for individuals looking to advance their professional careers. Students who had no soldering experience were able to learn basic skills and receive a certificate that will make them more marketable as professionals. It was truly a rewarding experience for both the students and the instructor!

In other news, BEST is celebrating 20 years servicing the electronics industry! We invite you to help us celebrate at BEST on September 20th. There will be live music, food, and beverages. All are welcome! Let's party like its 1997!

What: Chicago-style celebration, live music, food and drinks

When: September 20th, 2017 @ 3pm

During SMTA International convention, we are only 15 minutes away!

Where: BEST, Inc. 3603 Edison Place, Rolling Meadows, IL 60008

High Volume PCB Rework

Many times a very large rework project may not make a lot of sense. The labor costs are more than 50% of the board material costs, or the job is too large to get through in the required timing.

BEST has recently added a semi-automatic rework machine that can both deposit paste/flux as well as place parts at high speed. This new capability is meant for projects requiring the replacement of passive devices, BGAs/QFNs on a single board, or multiple boards. Find out more on our website.

Contact Laura Ripoli (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) at 224-387-3255 with any questions.
