Finetech announces that it has been awarded a Global Technology Award in the category of Bonding Equipment for its FINEPLACER® matrix ma. The award was presented to the company during a November 15, 2011 ceremony that took place at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany during Productronica 2011.
The FINEPLACER® matrix ma is the ideal choice for bonding when high precision and application flexibility are required -- especially when standards of process reliability and reproducibility of results are demanded (specifications such as those found in medical technology, aerospace and the automobile industry). The process flexibility makes the system ready for future developments in respect to new connection technologies.
Incorporating a new ergonomic approach to bonder design, this state-of-the-art platform, with a large working area and high placement accuracy, combines application modularity within an open hardware and software environment. The machine’s small footprint and low power consumption result in an environmentally friendly bonding solution.
Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
