The focus of this study was on typical surface mount technology (SMT), pin-through-hole (PTH) and combined applications. With the laser equipment cost approximately twice that of hot-gas , justification is difficult for such applications. In most cases, hot gas can provide a safe and effective rework method. However, other Solectron sites have found specific applications where the laser tool was required and superior .
Key words: Laser rework, hot-gas rework, and profile
