Abstract : The objective of the Repair Technology for Printed Wring Assemblies (PWA) program (sponsored by the U.S Air Force on contract F33615-91-C-5700) was to design, fabricate, test, install, and validate an automated modular system for the repair of printed wiring assemblies. In its final form. the system will consist of six modular stations that will identify and target the failed PWA components, identify and remove conformal coatings, remove the failed components, replace and solder the new components, and provide an operator assisted means for visual inspection. The first three stations were fabricated, tested, installed and validated at Warner Robins Air Logistics Center in Warner Robins, GA. The remaining stations may be completed under a separate Air Force contract.
