wafer to waffle



wafer to waffle | 11 September, 2000

Is there somebody who knows if there is a machine already available in market that can transfer die from wafer to waffle tray. This machine should a stand alone type or can be integrated to some P&P machine. What I'm trying to say is just like the one they use for micron2 from esec and some GSM and Quad machines. Or maybe a company who offer automation who can provide an equipment for that application.

I have just read that Hover-Davis now manufacture a direct die feeder which can feed directly from wafer to P & P machine compatible with a number of different placement machine manufacturers.

Perhaps this will help?

Dear Sir,

It is possible depending on the exact application. At the moment only way to go direct from die to waffle or PCB is with Hover Davies direct die feeders on Philips EMT (ACM, advanced component mounter), Universal and Siemens machines. This how ever is a vertical die feeding process with only one wafer. In near future it will be also possible do horizontal die feeding from wafer stacks with Laurier horizontal die feeders.

Dear Mr. Gerits,

Thank you very much for the information. You'd mentioned about Laurier horizontal die feeders, Is Laurier is feeder manufacturer also?

Please advise,

Best Regards, Raul C. Santos
