|PGA Extraction Tools|
For extraction of PIN-GRID-ARRAYS from sockets with high extraction force, the four side grip claw type is recommended in order to prevent damaging the Array. The multi-range tools have spindle actuation and a lifting mechanism with movable support jaws. Solid aluminium crossbars ensure even load distribution during the extraction operation. Their relatively large lift of approx. 15mm also permits safe extraction of arrays with bonded-on heat sinks.
|PLCC - SOJ - LCC Extraction Tools|
It only requires ONE tool for extracting PLCC and SOJ chips of all pin configurations and LCC 32- and 44-pin chips (E-PROM's). The plastic arms sit on the side, thus avoiding an extraction force on the socket itself. This is most important for SMD sockets, which would otherwise be torn off the board. The same tool can be used for all sockets built according to JEDEC standards and having diagonal entry slots.
