Helmut Rutterschmidt, president and director of the board at Datacon Technology AG, can be proud of his team: �Many of our customers were waiting almost greedily for our dual-head bonder. The unique combination of precision, high speed and unchanged stable process times � all in the one compact machine � makes the 8800 FC Quantum the ideal core of a high volume flip chip production line. Nine years after our 2200 apm platform revolutionized the advanced packaging market, we are expecting similar things in the flip chip market from our completely newly designed 8800 FC platform.� And of the supply situation Rutterschmidt says: �Thanks to our timely investments, which we also continued in difficult times, we can now deliver without delay. For our customers this means that Datacon can not only show you the leading equipment in the industry but can also deliver it with short lead times.�
