Offering the world’s leading safe device recovery process

Retronix's 8 Step Process

Safe Device Reclaim


High Value Device Reclaim –

Every day millions of dollars of brand new components are scrapped by manufacturers because they are attached to faulty PCBs. If these components could be safely reused after careful IC Recovery in some rare cases IC repair, these companies would save huge amounts of money in recovered scrap, provide much needed “allocated” components and also reduce the amount and cost of landfill. An added bonus is that it would also seriously damage the counterfeit industry, whose raw material supply would be reduced.

Combining our rework, retinning, reballing, ICOS coplanarity testing, electrical testing and repackaging services we have a full suite of processes to enable us to safely recover, re align, re tin/ball and test your devices to give you piece of mind that the part is fully functioning when you receive it back for use in new production or the service and support of current products.

Is the chip you want to re-use the reason that the PCB failed?

It’s been well proven over time that very few of these failed PCBs are caused by bad silicon. At least 70% of scrap is created by solder paste issues alone. Retronix also puts every component through a rigorous test process to eliminate electrical and mechanical failures.

What if the component is damaged during removal or refurbishment?

Retronix offers the only safe IC recovery process on the market. We can remove and refurbish your components using no reflow cycles and no abrasive processes – and each part of our process is fully controlled and repeatable.
