The flexible FINEPLACER® lambda is a sub-micron die-bonder for precision die attach and advanced chip packaging.
It offers a modular design and can be easily reconfigured for future applications, making it the premier choice when maximum technological versatility and fast process implementation is key. Typical fields of application include R&D, universities, prototyping and low-volume production.
The system handles a wide range of applications, including laser bar and diode bonding with Indium or Au/Sn, VCSEL/photo diode bonding (glueing, curing) and the multi-stage assembly of opto electro mechanical systems (i.e. MEMS/MOEMS) for communications and medical technology products.
"The FINEPLACER® lambda system is versatile enough to support multiple applications or designs and still support micro-alignment accuracies. The variety of modules along with their “easy-to-switch / easy-to-use” procedures is a key enabler for a multi project development platform."Avi Maman
