Saline Lectronics Announces New In-house Wire Bonding Capability

Aug 11, 2015

Saline Lectronics, Inc., a leading electronics contract manufacturer, now offers wire bonding in-house as an added-value service. With the installation of the Kulicke & Soffa 4500 Manual Wedge Bonder, Saline Lectronics is now one of the only electronic contract manufacturers in the Midwest to support wire bonding services. 

Due to size constraints or cost limitations, certain electronic products specify wire bonding requirements as this process is one of the most flexible interconnect technologies available. In response to this increasing demand, Saline Lectronics has purchased the K&S Manual Wedge Bonder to perform wire bonding assembly in-house. This new tool will allow Lectronics to support both wedge bonding and ball bonding.  

Since we work very closely with our customers during the design phase, we have seen a trend to reduce overall cost and package size of products while simultaneously increasing flexibility,” said Scott Sober, VP of Continuous Improvements. “In response to this trend, we decided to add wire bonding capabilities to our processes, which also will open the door to many Chip-on-Board applications.”

Lectronics’ wire bonding capabilities are perfectly suited for chip-on-board assembly, hybrid/multi-chip modules, microwave products and optoelectronic parts. The company is able to support both aluminum and gold wire, with a 3mm wire maximum limitation. Additionally, Lectronics can utilize ribbon with a maximum size of 1mm by 10mm.  

The K&S 4500 Series Bonder offers semi-automatic and manual operation modes, individual bond parameter control and capacity for a wide range of wire diameters. This enables ease-of-use in ball bonding, ball bumping, coining, security bonding and single-point TAB applications.

Long-term, Lectronics plans to add even more services to its micro-assembly work area including die attachment, encapsulation and micro-assembly dicing. For more information about Saline Lectronics’ capabilities, visit www.lectronics.net.
