Magazine handler

Magazine handler
for automated lead frame testing

The Sigma MAG comes with an independent lead frame (un)loader for hands-free bond testing. The magazine handler is compatible with OHT and AGV and allows top and front-loading of multiple types of:

  • Lead frames
  • Cassettes
  • Magazines
  • PCBs
  • Flex
  • Boat carriers
Slot and device selection

Slot and device selection

Matrix programming allows you to test a variety of position types, including repeating positions, like:

  • Rows and columns
  • Specific or randomized locations
  • Predefined test location from remote protocols driven by SECS/GEM functionality, and more!

Automatic width adjustment

Because of its extended 600 mm X stage, the Sigma MAG can accommodate lead frames up to 100×240 mm. To ensure fast, simple, and repeatable changeovers, you can use automatic width adjustment.

LEAD FRAMES
Width (mm)
25-100

Length up to 300 mm possible in case of single camera.

Waffle tray loader (pick and place)

Quickly test whole waffle trays of samples without operator intervention. You can program a waffle tray loader on your Sigma MAG to pick the sample from the waffle tray and place the sample into the clamper and vice versa.

Sigma MAG with Safety Cabinet

For SEMI S2, combine a Sigma MAG with a safety cabinet

This option guarantees extra safety during automatic bond testing and protects the operator from moving parts. The cabinet fulfills the standards for safety and ergonomics, and it keeps the test debris away to ensure a clean working environment.

  • Stable lighting for camera stability, because of semi-transparent covers, which block ambient light
  • Mobile user interface for free positioning over the full cabinet length
  • Joysticks, keyboard, and mouse are always accessible in a transparent protected and extractable drawer
  • Optional automatic loading from AGV or OHT
  • CE and TÜV certified

Integrate a Sigma MAG in your product line

The Loadport is an extension to the Sigma MAG for automatic (un)loading of magazines up to 100×240 mm without operator intervention. It communicates through SEMI E84 and allows top- and frontloading by:

  • Over Head Transport (OHT)
  • Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV)
  • Or manually

Magazine buffering makes lead frame testing even more efficient. It is possible to load multiple magazines to keep the system running and ensure no down-time on the bondtester.

Compliance to SEMI S2/S8 and GEM 300 improves safety

Like the Sigma MAG, the Loadport comes with a safety enclosure and is compliant to SEMI S2/S8. The frontside of the Loadport is open but has safety light curtains. When the operator reaches through the light curtains, the system shuts down immediately to guarantee optimal safety protection.

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.
