EtherCAT Solution for Integrated IC Packaging Machine

Posted by Kari Grosser on Aug 1, 2018 10:45:00 AM

The semiconductor industry has some of the most demanding applications, a combination of extreme accuracy and precision combined with high throughput. The semiconductor processing can be divided into two parts - "frontend" and "backend".

The term Backend refers to dicing the wafer into individual chips and all the processors thereafter; such as test, assembly and packaging. 

To deal with faster and more powerful chip technology, semiconductor process linewidth technology has continued to evolve down to the nano-level, and the backend of semiconductor processes also needs to provide a shorter production cycle, in order to increase production throughput per unit of time.

High-Speed Adhesive Dispenser Solution

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jul 23, 2018 10:30:00 AM

In manual electronics manufacturing processes that require the application of adhesives, it generally takes double the effort to complete in comparison to when automated dispensers are used. When traditional adhesive dispensers are used, the process involves using contact-type dispensers to apply adhesives to such surfaces as electronic components and LED packaging.

An Internet Solution for PCB Equipment

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jul 9, 2018 10:30:00 AM

Urgent and customized orders are recurring trends in the PCB industry. To shorten production times, it is necessary for production lines to be highly flexible while still satisfying customer quality control requirements. Common to traditional PCB factories are systems for solder paste printing, sampling, reflow soldering, and so on, all of which store relevant information for each corresponding station. Low-level equipment information, such as that from PCs, PLCs, and sensors, is typically not integrated, thus limiting maintenance and management processes that require production data,leaving manufacturers unable to promptly clarify the root of any issues that arise.

Smart productions systems provide a solution to this problem,and these can be realized only by establishing equipment connectivity. The obvious advantages of such systems are that the complete production history can be recorded and yield tracing can be conducted while integrating the data in the control room.
