MagicBox describes their REFLO Air machine as “a stylish, portable reflow machine that lets creators and makers easily, quickly, and professionally prototype circuits.” It’s a small reflow oven that can be used for rapid prototyping, IoT projects, wearables, robotics, and a host of other applications.
The heater system is housed in a compact enclosure and situated in a way that allows you to solder without needing to operate the heater manually. The soldering process has been simplified as well and features one-touch settings for preheating and reflows, and a top-mounted panel to adjust temperature and fan speed. MagicBox also added safety measures to the machine — including a safeguard on the heater and a timer that limits continuous operation, which will help prevent accidental burns.
The REFLO Air measures-out at 138mm x 51mm x 138mm, has a 100 to 3000C temperature range, a K-type thermometer, and an internal cooling fan that allows for a quick cool down. The machine also comes with several optional accessories — such as a 3D-printed mount to hold smartphones, enabling you to use the camera to zoom in on the reflow area, an aluminum mini vice, and a semi-automated XY table that can be controlled using a mouse.
MagicBox is currently crowdfunding the REFLO Air on Crowd Supply in kit form — a Basic version that gets you the reflow machine only ($199), and a Deluxe model ($249), which includes the vice, 3D-printed phone mount and supply of solder paste. The XY table is sold separately for $99 ($79 version is sold out).
