Nordson MARCH Introduces Fully Automated Plasma Treatment System That Lowers The Handling Risk To Sensitive Substrate Materials

Nordson MARCH, a global leader in plasma processing technology, introduces the new FasTRAK Plasma System, a fully-automated, high-throughput, vacuum plasma treatment system for lead-frame strips, laminate substrates, and other strip-type microelectronic components. Using state-of-the-art robotic movement that virtually eliminates operator handling of the strips or magazines, the FasTRAK Plasma System accommodates the full known range of magazines and strip width, length, and thickness dimensions. The field-proven robotics were specifically designed to lower the handling risk to the sensitive substrate materials by using minimal pushing, pulling, and low G-forces.

The FasTRAK System features an innovative new material tracking software application and internal camera to count the number of strips and track their progress throughout the entire treatment process, providing 100% treatment validation. Up to 10 strips can be accommodated per batch with an industry leading units per hour (UPH) treatment rate. Measuring 1.65 meters wide by 1.5 meters deep, the FasTRAK Plasma System has a >35% smaller system footprint than previous strip processing models.

“The new FasTRAK Plasma System incorporates field-proven robotic material handling technology, but with a radically improved design, smaller footprint, and strip-size versatility to meet today’s most demanding industry requirements,” said Dr. James Getty, president, Nordson MARCH.

The FasTRAK System also includes a new high-efficiency, application-specific, plasma chamber that can be configured for direct or ion-free plasma modes. Typical plasma applications include:
  • Pre-die attach for improved adhesion
  • Pre-wire bond for higher pull strength and CpKs
  • Pre-mold to reduce delamination
  • Post-mold to remove flash
  • Pre-underfill to reduce voiding

A FasTRAK Plasma System, and plasma experts from Nordson MARCH, will be available at the SEMICON West Show, in Booth #6071, the Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA, USA, July 10-12, 2012.
