Condor Sigma: Performance and Flexibility

15 November 2011

Today before a sizeable audience at Productronica in Munich Germany, XYZTEC launched the Condor Sigma.

Performance and flexibility

The Condor Sigma is the most advanced bond tester on the market, combining the unique strengths of the Condor series with the latest technologies and innovations. Whether you need a dedicated or multipurpose bond tester, the Condor Sigma is the best choice featuring unparalleled 0.075% accuracy, the best ergonomics, highest throughput, maximum flexibility and the lowest cost of ownership.

Use existing tools and work holders

This system is designed to be compatible with the most commonly used work holders and tooling, that you may already have in stock. The compatibility modes ensure consistency in your measurement results across machines. Equipped with the most powerful intuitive software, operators can quickly learn to use the Condor Sigma alongside your existing equipment and procedures.

Revolving Measurement Unit up to 200 kgf

XYZTEC is well known for many innovative bond testing solutions. The Revolving Measurement Unit (RMU) is one of the results of XYZTEC engineering team utilizing customer feedback.

Now the capability of the RMU achieves up to 200 kgf shear and 100 kgf pull and push. The flexible configuration allows 1 to 6 sensors enabling fully automatic and manual testing. Compared to changing cartridges manually, the RMU eliminates warm up time and greatly reduces the risk of sensor damage.

Built in image capture and automation camera

The standard configuration contains a perpendicular automation camera at a small offset from the test point with a choice of two magnifications and optical resolutions down to 1.5 μm.

The Condor Sigma can be equipped with a maximum of three separate cameras mounted in different positions to offer the best range of imaging possibilities. For automation, fiducial mark recognition is available.

Soft landing and high resolution

A wide variety of tests is possible using the Condor Sigma with forces ranging from less than 1 gf to 200 kgf. Digital temperature correction and the world’s highest resolution of 24 bits contribute to the most reliable and repeatable measurement results.

The shear landing force is programmable to a minimum of a few grams. Even on a higher speed a soft landing is possible. Featuring 50 mm/s the X, Y & Z axes are very quick and power up in any position.

Modular and open design

All sensor modules are interchangeable and fit any single heads and the Revolving Measurement Unit. Fully calibrated and tested, each sensor module can be removed and replaced within a few minutes.

The open frame design and large stroke for all three stages offer the capability to handle the widest range of sample sizes with little or no special tooling. High accuracy quick release work holders and measurement units ensure rapid sample loading and production setup.

Put it to the test!

With 10+ years in house experience, XYZTEC takes bond testing to a new level with the Condor Sigma. It uses the best of established technology together with innovation to set the new standard. Its broad specifications ensure it has the capability to perform all commonly used industry tests as well as special and challenging applications.

Current users of bond test equipment will find that the Condor Sigma system will provide an easy transition from their existing process to the state of the art Condor Sigma platform. Performance is without a doubt best in class, but do not take our word for it. Try it for yourself, and put it to the test!
