Board-Only Repair Policy
TFix can repair your Printed Circuit Boards with quick turn around time, exceptional customer service and low costs. Boards that have become obsolete may contain components still available today, which can be replaced. Provided the components are identifiable, there is a very good chance that they will be recoverable. Failures are usually caused by solder paste or soldering connections failures and not IC’s or PCB’s. In these cases, we can remove identified components, refurbish leads, BGA’s and re-attach them back on boards. Our electronic engineers can quickly, efficiently and professionally remove, refurbish and replace all components mounted on Printed Circuit Boards. Operating equipment sourced from the best manufacturers from all over the world, we can keep your rework costs down. All of our repairs are completed at ESD safe and controlled environments. Equipment and procedures are carefully developed and selected by our R&D department.
BGA Rework Procedure Explained:
- PCB pre-baked in safety drying oven according to JEDEC standards to prevent de-lamination and evaporate all moisture within PCB layers and BGA components.
- The Integrated Circuit with faulty BGA is removed using our developed profiles and procedures.
- The PCB BGA site is cleared of residual solder and cleaned using specially designed board solvents to remove all residues and contamination.
- Integrated Circuit undergoes a process known as “re-balling”, which applies high-quality solder spheres on device connection pads.
- Refurbished IC is inspected using video microscope for damages, contamination and imperfections on refurbished Ball Grid Arrays.
- A refurbished component is then placed back onto Printed Circuit Board using a selection of fluids, fluxes and relevant procedures.
- Every single board has different soldering profile, factors such as board size, thickness and component density are considered during profile development.
- After the procedure is complete, we use special BGA microscope to look underneath component and inspect for voids, bridges and quality of joints.
Board only rework service is not covered by our usual warranty, as the device is not diagnosed or assembled by TFix.
By allowing us to carry out repair procedure all our clients agree to trust in engineers knowledge and equipment to carry out successful procedures, however in some cases due to the age of the PCB or inaccurate diagnostics provided by the customer the outcome is not as expected and can render the final repair unsuccessful. In these situations, TFix cannot be held responsible and additional pricing might incur if a board is sent for further repairs.
If we provided a quotation and subsequently discover that the quote is incorrect, we reserve the right to cancel the order and return your equipment without any repairs carried out. We will contact you at the earliest convenience to advise you of the situation and you will be given the option to proceed based on a newly revised quotation or the order can be cancelled.
If you choose to cancel the order, any monies paid in advance for the repairs will be refunded in full, minus administration fee, a minimum of £9.99. This excludes evaluation and shipping charges.
All contracts formed between TFix and the Client shall be governed by and construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Each party agrees that any disputes not resolved by the normal complaints procedure will be submitted to the court within the jurisdiction of Northern Ireland.
