Product Overview

Terms and Definitions

PACE provides innovative solution, products and training for the assembly, rework, repair and testing of printed circuit boards. PACE's unique capabilities and evolving vision have produced universal solutions to thru-hole and surface-mount assembly and rework problems for the most advanced electronics. Our strong commitment and history of achievement has resulted in an unparalleled range of Assembly, Repair and Fume Extraction systems to meet your company's needs whether working ISO 9001, industrial, military, or your own internal specifications. Whatever the challenge, PACE stands ready to provide the best, cost-effective solution for you.

PACE products meet or exceed applicable military and civilian EOS/ESD, temperature stability, AC leakage, tip ground resistance specifications, including MIL-STD-2000, ANSI/J-STD-001, IPC 7721/21 and IPC-A-610.

Soldering Stations

PACE digital systems (WJS 100, ST 50, ST 100) are fully programmable, loaded with features and incorporate PACE’s exclusive IntelliHeat Control Technology. PACE analog systems (ST 25, ST 30, ST 70) feature a dial or power module control that are specifically designed for easy and low cost operation. All models allow you to significantly lower your yearly soldering expenses through the use of inexpensive, long-life tips. But just because they cost less doesn’t mean PACE tips are less powerful.

Conductive Rework Systems

PACE revolutionized the electronics industry in the 60's by creating the first self-contained continuous vacuum desoldering system. Since then, we have produced the best rework and repair stations on the planet, then made them better. Renowned for their reliability and longevity, tens of thousands have been manufactured in the USA, many of which are still in use after 20 years! And we are constantly producing new products and technology to meet the rapidly changing needs of electronics rework and repair professionals.

SMT Rework Systems & Pre-Heaters

PACE's SMT rework systems and Pre-heaters are ideal for SMT rework and repair. Using either convective or IR heating technology, they leave little residual solder on the PCB. They are also appropriate for installing leaded components with solder paste and for installing components without visible leads, such as BGA's, MLF's, LGA's, and LCC's. PACE is pleased to offer three systems to meet your exacting specifications. Pre-heaters are vital in today's environment with high mass PCBs and lead free solder.

Area Array (BGA) Rework

Area Array (BGA) Rework Products are sold exclusively through our Worldwide Distribution Network.  

Fume Extraction Systems & Accessories

Work related respiratory ailments are on the rise resulting in lost work time as well as higher compensation costs for employers.PACE Fume Extraction systems offer reliable performance, quiet operation, optimal flow rates and easy installation for use with our extraction arms and accessories.


PACE offers a variety of different handpieces for our systems.  PACE offers handpieces for sale individually or in a "Kit" which includes the handpiece and stand or "Cubby".

Tips & Nozzles

PACE manufactures hundreds of replacement solder/desolder tips, heat focusing hot air nozzles, and a variety of accessories for our soldering, desoldering and rework handpieces and systems. Soldering/Rework Tips are made of high conductivity copper, are iron-plated to assure long-life, and tinned with lead-free solder for RoHS compliance. Quick-Connect Nozzles for our TF Series of BGA Rework Systems and ST Series of Hot Air Rework stations are constructed of welded stainless steel and will last for years.


For over 50 years, PACE has provided training, products and procedures for assembling and repairing the most advanced electronics assemblies.  Our primary focus has always been to develop controlled processes which recognize practical human abilities and provide consistent, high quality resu
