High force test head

360° Head design​

Easy positioning and programming are possible with up to 5 cameras on a 360° rotational measurement head. These head-mounted cameras come without tool-to-camera offset. 

Sigma-HF-L-Safety-Cabinet

Safety cabinet

These bond testers operate at the fastest speeds in the industry, and as such, demand the most attention to safe operation.

The safety cabinet automatically locks during an automatic test to protect the samples and the operator from moving parts. You can easily control the system by its mobile user interface with 2 monitors and an emergency switch. The safety cabinet is SEMI S2 and fulfills the standards for safety and ergonomics.

Stacked light Balluff

Visual feedback

The safety cabinet has a stack light on top to allow you to work efficiently and to manage multiple systems simultaneously. It is fully programmable, and it gives you visual and audible feedback when the system requires an operator.

Flexible-positioning-of-multiple-work-holders

Flexible positioning

With a Sigma L, you are capable of testing the largest battery modules in the industry. The large working area makes flexible positioning of multiple work holders at the same time possible. 

We develop custom work holder solutions for your batteries to provide secure clamping, repeatable positioning, and stability during any bond test. 

Options

  • Extra-large stage for even larger test volume
  • Revolving Measurement Unit (RMU)
  • Customization

Full automation

Eliminate human error and save production costs.

  • Robotic handlers
  • Easy programming
  • Smart vision cameras
  • Tool alignment
  • Fiducial recognition
  • Wire detection
  • Grading run
  • Auto grading
  • Image measurement (AOI)
  • Data communication

Handlers

Robotic handling ensures safe load and unload of applications and avoids handling error and damage. We offer handlers for:

  • Wafers (EFEM)
  • Waffle trays
  • Magazines

Easy programming

The open Sigma software enables easy programming of total automation steps, positions, and commands. The automation editor employs camera visualization and intelligent wizards.

Smart vision cameras

See the unseen with up to 3 live camera options. Bring out the features of interest with images or videos using high-resolution cameras, flexible LED illumination, and fantastic image processing options.

Tool alignment

Precise tool alignment is essential to test the correct bonds correctly. We offer several solutions for perfect alignment:
  • Self-aligning shear tool
  • Deep access
  • Revolving Measurement Unit
  • Concentricity correction

Fiducial recognition

Define recognizable shapes, patterns, or marks as a global or local reference for positioning and automatic tool alignment.

Wire dection

Recognition of components and fine pitch wires that are swept out of position due to process tolerances or part handling.

Grading run

A Sigma offers 2 alternatives to make grading more efficient and consistent:

  • The operator does all the gradings in one step after a sequence of tests, using the microscope or an offset camera.
  • A Sigma can take it one step further and make automatic determinations of the failure modes (auto grading).

Auto grading

Automatically grade the failure modes of the test result images with grading assistance. Optical inspection calculates the area of bulk material remaining as a percentage of the whole.

Image measurement (AOI)

Detailed optical inspection helps you to perform image measurements or to identify the failure modes of the captured test results. For more advanced image processing, filtering, segmentation, and detection of shapes, you can use Automated Optical Inspection (AOI).

Data export

Improve data processing using automatic export and SECS/GEM for tracking and control.

RMU

No more cartridge
exchanges

The Revolving Measurement Unit (RMU) houses up to 6 flexible sensors that are configurable with various pull, peel, push, or shear tools. This enables continuous testing up to 200 kgf.
