In assembly the bare board is populated with electronic components, called a "printed circuit board assembly" (PCBA). In through-hole technology, the component leads are inserted in holes surrounded by conductive pads; In surface-mount technology (SMT), the component is placed on the PCB so that the pins line up with the conductive pads or lands on the surfaces of the PCB.

Our company is in the market to replace the $50 toaster oven we use to reflow boards with something that can actually achieve even temperature and a proper reflow curve. We are a RnD type company and have no need for volumes. Though we have some heavy copper boards with odd board shapes. Of course we are on a limited budget so much so that eBay toys such as T-962A IR batch/tray oven is considered. After many head breaking days and hours of online research i am no smarter as to which direction i should take but i have narrowed it down to two possible avenues.
Brand new: T200N from Manncorp. It looks good on paper will suit all our board sizes and can double up as a curing oven for moisture sensitive devices down the track if we ever upgrade. It will get us over the bridge.
Used: Omniflow Bravo 4050 ?
I only have 2 years experience (forgive me) in the industry. So names and brands are just starting to makes sense now. Some of the units/brands available from the local second hand dealer which i am meeting in two days i successfuly eliminated from these forums. However I can't find anything on this omniflow and its no longer listed on the manufacturers website? However i feel that it will be same money as the new Manncorp unit. (by time i incorpoate exchange rates and shipping)
Which direction should i take? new vs used Any info on Omniflow? zones? rohs? inert gas? issues?
Oh Ye blessed with wisdom and experience! Please help!
