FINEPLACER® matrix rs

Future in Advanced Rework

The FINEPLACER® matrix rs is a semi-automatic rework station representing the latest development from Finetech, encompassing the “Built to be Best” philosophy.

With a high level of process modularity, the system supports the complete rework cycle in a platform ergonomically designed to provide a state-of-the-art technical solution, low maintenance and easy service access.

Open application architecture ensures compatibility with future technologies as users transition from R&D into OEM production.
