Questar Gold Ball Bonder Simplifies Set-up, Changeover



Fully automatic, fine-pitch machines offer enhanced accuracy and affordability...

PLEASANTON, Calif. - Questar Products International, a manufacturer of automatic wire bonders for the global assembly market, has developed a fine-pitch, fine-wire (17µ-75µ), automatic gold ball bonder designed specifically to meet today's production challenges associated with smaller lot sizes, multiple product variations and frequent set-up changes. Designated the Q2119A, this gold ball auto bonder supports a variety of customer needs from prototyping to medium volume production. Package conversions can be completed in minutes while accommodating a multitude of device configurations.

"The Q2100 Automatic Wire Bonder Series fills a price/performance void in solid state component assembly as no other wire bonder line offers a comparable combination of operator friendliness, flexibility, productivity, quality and low cost-of-ownership. Other manufacturers simply cannot match the Q2119A's productivity at our cost-effective price point," said Dennis Scott, president, Questar Products International.

The Q2119A is designed with today's demanding applications in mind. In addition to fine-pitch capability, the machine's superior performance levels are due, in part, to its fast, accurate pattern recognition system, ball bumping and coining capability, and programmable security bonds.

Users will save on maintenance costs due to virtually maintenance-free electronics. When service is needed, however, it can be accomplished quickly and efficiently with available remote diagnostics for the software and unrestricted access to the component bay. Procurement of replacement parts is simplified and less expensive, as the machines are designed with off-the-shelf components available from suppliers worldwide.

Running on the Windows XP Pro(TM) operating system, the Q2119A offers intuitive, menu-driven software that is easy to program, with convenient access to all machine functions. The user-friendly operator interface provides point-and-click bonding; unlimited wires; easy bond process editing; extensive program storage; and a bond parameter library. Options for further flexibility include programmable ultrasonic generator (256 increments) with low impedance transducers, programmable temperature controllers (optional dual-loop), unique, application specific software, and custom machines with large table up to 300mm x 300mm.
