"Feather touch" multi-tool head enhances throughput for die bonding

Keyword: Die bonding

MRSI has announced the availability of a six head "feather-touch" tool turret for the MRSI-505 Assembly Work Cell that delivers increased cycle rates in die bonding and component assembly processes. This enhancement makes six separate tools always available on the robot head, thus allowing tool change to occur in parallel with movement. The new feature saves time and adds manufacturing flexibility. (see Plate 5).

Tools on the six-head turret rotate over a full 360° of orientation to align die no matter how they are presented to the system, for maximum flexibility. Die are placed with a closed loop force control, programmable from 10 to 2,000g. Utilizing the turret feature, very high cycle rates are achieved.

The MRSI-505 Ultra-Precision Assembly Work Cell is regarded as the industry standard for ultra-precision assembly and is proven in critical microelectronic applications worldwide. Vision-guided and fully automatic, the MRSI-505 provides both ultra precision and high speed.
