Semi-Automatic Wire Bonders

4KE / 4KEH Multi-Loop, Multi Wire, Wedge / Ball / Ribbon Wire Bonder, 3-Way Convertible, Motorized Z and Y Axes

AUTOMATIC PRECISION at a fraction of the cost. Microprocessor controlled motors drive both the Y and Z axes for a series of parallel, single or multiple arched wires maintaining identical loop and bond shapes. This system is ideal for bonding high power, high frequency devices where identical bond and loop shapes are critical. In such applications as  Microwave – Semiconductor – RF and Hybrid products.

UNLIMITED PART SIZE: Access to remote bond targets on large packages or modules with WEST·BOND’s throat-less chassis and micromanipulator design. All machines components are arrayed above the horizontal bond plane, eliminating any restriction to package size or shape. The EX version of this system the bonder can be suspended over very large parts.

CONVERTABILITY: WEST·BOND introduced the first triple convertible wire bonder back in November of 1969, today WEST·BOND introduces a new tool head that can bond it all: 45° wedge, 90° feed for wire and ribbon as well as ball bonding.

4546E / 454630E Wedge-Wedge Wire Bonder, Motorized Z and Y Axes (High Frequency)

AUTOMATIC PRECISION at a fraction of the cost. Microprocessor controlled motor drives for both Y and Z-axes bond a succession of parallel, single or multiple arched wires maintaining identical loop and bond shapes. Unlimited deep-reach access to bond targets on IC packages of any X-Y dimension with West•Bond’s throatless chassis and micromanipulator designs. Ideal for bonding high power, high frequency devices where identical bond and loop shapes are critical.

CONVERTIBILITY for angled and vertical wire feed wedge bonding is easily accomplished with a simple change of clamping mechanisms, both of which are included with Model 4546E. Model 4546E expands convertibility with a 45° tool head and 90° tool head. All program variables and bond settings for each configuration are retained in memory between conversions.

CONVERTABILITY: WEST·BOND introduced the first triple convertible wire bonder back in November of 1969, today WEST·BOND introduces a new tool head that can bond it all: 45° wedge, 90° feed for wire and ribbon as well as ball bonding. A simple exchange of clamp assemblies, bond tool, and wire path provided with the software mode will allow conventional 45° wire feed, deep access wire or ribbon, ball bonding, insulated wire and single point tab / lead bonding. All programmed bond variables as well as machine settings for each bond mode are retained in the machines memory.
