Quad Laurier Die Feeder? | 6 February, 2001

Does anyone know if the Quad ASP machine uses a die wafer feeder manufactured by Laurier. I have experience with the Laurier wafer die handlers and thik they really work well. I am thinking about Quad ASP for a flip chip placement machine.

Thanks,

Frank

I used a Die feeder from Delaware Technologies for our Quad machine. We have not had Quad in our factory for over a year now so most of my knowledge is geared towards the older Quads. Don Dawson at Delaware Technologies can help. 609-235-8454. I am curious on your Quad selection for flip chip, please provide some more info on you machine selection and justification.

Sorry I cant help with your Laurier question. Best regards, Cal cdriscoll@aci-corp.org

Since, 1996, Samsung has been the sole supplier of Quad component feeders. And I believe Samsung is the developer and producer of Quad�s Meridian placement machines. Quad has been fighting with Samsung for over a year [http://www.quad-sys.com/investor/000411_arbitration.htm]. So to get out of those and other obligations, Quad recently requested Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia [http://www.localbusiness.com/Story/0,1118,PHL_543798,00.html]. As a result of years of financial problems the Nasdaq Stock Market has delisted the company [http://www.hoovershbn.hoovers.com/bin/story?StoryId=CoM5HubWbueHxmda3&FQ=c%25QSYSQ%20&Title=Headlines%20for%3A%20QSYSQ%0A].

DAVE F. Far be it for me to correct you, it is not my place. I just want to Calibrate your GPS a little. The short and sweet version- Quad was to sell Samsung machines under a private label. All was ok until Quad released a machine to compete with Samsungs machine and things got sticky from there. Quad has cut its ties with Samsung (or vise versa) about 1.5 years and now private label machines from Mirae (http://www.mirae.co.kr/eng/index.html). It is my understanding Quad will be consumed by Mirae. The Meridian is a Mirae machine. The bad part of this is the Mirae machine is actually a stable machine. I think Quads instability was there demise. Quad had the low to middle market and tried to play in the league with Siemens, UIC, Fuji, Panasonic, and Philips (now Assembl�on) but failed. I ask for forgiveness for over stepping my bounds.
