West Bond’s pioneering family of gantry-style large-area bonding machines has a new member, 3500E-Series. For applications of identical parallel wires -- such as, high frequency, high power semiconductor devices – this machine is specifically designed to perform programmed, pattern-recognition, automatic bonding efficiently. With work oriented front-to-back, the non-rotating bond head scans and bonds over its large travel area. Quality expectation is high with missing wire detection that functions without work contact, and with on-screen view of bond progress via a second camera. A universal heated workstation with drop-in adapter and with manual rotation to détente positions is offered as an accessory. Otherwise, this gantry machine can be brought intact to handling systems of customer’s choosing.
This just may complete our new line of 3~00E-Series moving-head gantry machines. Or, if the terrorists leave us alone, maybe it won’t.
