8000i Wire Bonder - high-reliability wire bonder & ball (stud) bumper


Utilizes advanced geometric pattern matching technology to reliably and accurately locate parts that are randomly oriented or have greyscale variations by using a set of boundary curves that are not tied to a traditional pixel-grid. Maximizes throughput, and enables part inspection both before and after bonding.

Bond Data Miner

Bond Data Miner

A comprehensive and centralized data management and analysis system that provides machine and process trend monitoring, storage and traceability of data across platforms, and closed loop process control for increased yields and predictive maintenance.

Intelligent Interactive Graphical Interface

Intelligent Interactive Graphical Interface® - i2Gi®

Supports advanced wire bond control through an intuitive interface that simplifies programming and provides real time graphical feedback to the user of bonding performance. Allows for a connected view with the ability to overlay 1:1 scaled graphics on top of live video of actual part.

Automated Handler System

Automated Handler System

Automated inline handlers and conveyor systems to seamlessly bring parts in and out of the workspace. Custom designed for all process to fit all components and even apply heat for bot die and wire applications. Built with integration in mind for fully automatic assembly lines that can include all of our bonders.

Vision Standardization

Vision Standardization

Automated calibration of image lighting across multiple bonders. Allows for seamless transfer of programs from bonder to bonder with zero time spent re teaching or adjusting references. Greatly reduces downtime when programs need to be updated and distributed across bonders.
