JNASE is the perfect tool to rework smallest SMT components like 0402,0201,01005 and 008004 under the microscope.
JNASE, specially designed to work on HDI boards used in mobiles, laptops, high speed communication devices, military applications, etc. Since the JNASE enables flow regulation of temperatures and air at very low levels in order to avoid the expulsion/ movement of adjoining components,it is the perfect tool to rework the smallest SMT components such as 0402, 0201, 01005 and 008004 under the microscope. Pick & Place The station includes a Pick & Place Unit activated by pedal to position and remove components with high precision. Quick tip Changer The Quick Tip Changer facilitates the fast and safe use of different cartridge geometries. The JNASE is compatible with three cartridge sizes with outlet diameters of 0.8, 1 and 1.2 mm. Connectivity: With the software JBCSuite, the JNASE can be synchronized with the NASE Station and the two Preheater models, PHSE and PHBE, in order for them to work jointly and to perform your work process optimally. New interface and renewed design The new interface, specially designed for the new JNASE, has an intuitive user menu that allows configuring the station parameters easily.
