Newsletter: Why all bond testers should have an RMU

26 January 2015

This is why all bond testers should have an RMU

Revolving Measurement Unit (RMU)

With the Revolving Measurement Unit (RMU), XYZTEC offers an unique multiple load cell cartridge for measuring all kinds of horizontally and vertically tested bonds, using pull, peel, push or shear methods; either destructive or non-destructive. The key point is the automatic selection of the pull or shear tool and corresponding measurement sensor by software.

Typical applications include wire pull testing using a hook, solder ball pull testing using tweezers, gold wire ball shear, solder ball shear, die shear testing as well as full automatic testing.

Not using old cartridge technology anymore has many advantages

Eliminating manual cartridge changes, the RMU allows for very simple standard operating procedures to exchange sensors, without the risk of damage. Functions and applications are changed in 5 seconds, under software control. Both software and hardware are designed to prevent any damage when applications are exchanged.

If one sensor (transducer) is broken, the other sensors remain available for instant and convenient use. The advantages are clear: constant high UPH, improved repeatability and reproducibility and therefore increased Cpk results.

One RMU costs less than two single measurement units (cartridges) and they are maintenance free. If you are interested to find out more please contact us.
