The SPV Stencil Printer offers a variety of options to suit different PCBs and production processes for consistent high quality. With its high 10s/PCB cycle time, the SPV eliminates bottlenecks and ensures quality by self-cleaning after every PCB. Three conveyors and the PCB identification function provide different automatic printing set ups for a high throughput. With the machine-to-machine-communication option the SPV Screen Printer is using APC correction data to correct positional printing errors. The SPV Stencil Printer can print multiple 350x300mm (M-size) boards simultaneously. This lowers WIP inventory and reduces changeover times by processing up to 4 unique products at once. The configuration minimizes capital expenditure by reducing printer investment by 50% and maximize the floor space utilization with new hybrid board handling concept and the multi-stage board handling conveyors.
The Stencil Printer SPV-DC enables high efficiency dual lane production in a compact design. The printer is designed for high speed production without changeovers. To reduce running costs the SPV-DC is equipped with the award-winning paperless cleaning function. Solder paste can refill automatically. Solder mask and the final printing result can be verified with an internal inspection. With the machine-to-machine-communication option the SPV-DC is using correction data to correct positional printing errors. The high-speed printer SPV-DC can print on board sizes from 50 x 50mm to 350 x 300mm. With the dual lanes the printer provides a cycle time of 13s, including transfer, positioning, recognition, high-precision printing and respective cleaning. Due to the non-stop changeover, the SPV-DC allows you to prepare the next production while running the printing process.
Adaptive Process Control
Mounting feed-forward function Components can be placed correctly based on the solder printing position. Placement skip data feed-forward/Block recognition data feed-forward Placement machine recognition time reduction based on feed-forward discrepancy data. Misplacement of components using a modular placement machine can be prevented based on feed-forward solder/land* printing defect block data.*When inspecting lands on which package components are placed using flux epoxy. Printing position data feedback The solder printing position misalignment is measured by the inspection machine. The positioning correction is transferred by means of feedback to the screen printer. The solder printing area is measured by the inspection equipment. The stencil cleaning direction can be compared with the reference value by means of feedback.
The fully automated printing solution is part of the "Autonomous Factory" Concept - a factory that immediately responds to every situation and continues to evolve autonomously. Ensuring the production of non-defective items through the integrated control of autonomous uninterrupted mounting lines and floors independent of any human intervention and judgment. Features:Increased Production Time: (1) Reduces machine availability losses through automation of operations required for model changeover.(2) Reduces machine performance losses through automation of operations involved in production.(3) Increases production time by monitoring machine conditions and thereby performing maintenanceat right times. Maintenance of printing quality at a consistently high level: Reduces losses due to defective items through various functions that actualizes consistently high-qualityprinting capable of responding to any changes in 5M. Support for line solution: Realizes high-quality line production through M2M

APX300 Dry Etcher
The APX300 (option S) Dry Etcher is the perfect dry etching equipment for silicon and compound semiconductors. It incorporates a multi-wafer direct cooling system for optimal control of wafer temperature, as well as MSC-ICP (Multi-Spiral Coil type ICP) and BM-ICP (Beamed-type ICP) plasma sources to generate high density plasma. In this way, it achieves a uniform etching profile in a very short timeframe. Building upon the single wafer process chamber of the previous model (Panasonic E620), combined with enhanced process options and two different handling systems, the APX300 (option S) is extremely fast and covers a wide range of process demands. Features and benefits of Panasonic's APX300 (option S) Dry Etcher The Panasonic APX300 (option S) Dry Etcher can process wafers such as power devices, SAW filters, communication devices, MEMS sensors and many more. The APX300 (option S) is the successor to the previous best-selling Panasonic E620 and utilizes the same single wafer process chamber. Two plasma sources are available: MSC-ICP (Multi-Spiral Coil type ICP) and BM-ICP (Beamed-type ICP). MSC-ICP is Panasonic's latest technology, developed to realize highly accurate processing. BM-ICP offers higher electron density and achieves faster processing, covering a wide range of process demands. In addition, two types of handling systems are available: Atmospheric Loading Supply and Vacuum Load Lock Supply. The Panasonic APX300 (option S) Dry Etcher is CE certified.
APX300 Plasma Dicer
Plasma dicing is becoming increasingly attractive in the semiconductor market. Dies are becoming smaller and thinner and manufacturers are facing difficulties such as increasing material loss due to the width of the dicing line, mechanical damage to the dies from chipping and increasingly longer processing times due to line-by-line mechanical dicing. Panasonic’s APX300 Plasma Dicer solves these challenges and simultaneously provides a higher quality product with a lower cost of production. Features and benefits of Panasonic's APX300 Plasma DicerPlasma dicing requires a dicing street mask. After the mask is applied to the surface of the wafer and the dicing streets are exposed, the plasma process etches the exposed streets by a chemical reaction. By using a chemical etching process, a chipping-free and particle-free process is achieved. Thanks to the use of mask patterning, narrower street widths are possible – allowing more chips to be designed onto the wafer. Furthermore, the mask patterning allows complete flexibility in chip size, shape and position. The benefits of the Panasonic APX300 Plasma Dicer are: Particle-free and damage-free processHigher chip strengthYield improvementsThe Panasonic APX300 is available in a stand-alone single chamber (1 chamber) or a multi chamber (1, 2, or 3 chambers) configuration. Panasonic can provide a plasma dicing total solution to achieve a damage-free, particle-free, higher throughput and lower overall cost of production. The Panasonic APX300 is CE certified.
MD-P200 Die Bonder
Unit Level Manufacturing by the synchro-motion of dispensing and bondingThe MD-P200's die bonding is carried out immediately after epoxy dispensing, thereby making it possible to finish the bonding operation before the epoxy has deteriorated. This realizes stable and high quality bonding at all bond positions on a substrate. In addition, the bonding stage camera enables pre-bonding inspection immediately after epoxy dispensing and post-bonding control immediately after the bonding of a die. This process enables manufacturing with real-time quality inspection.User-friendly operationA large touch panel and interactive software realize an easy and reliable operating environment for all users from beginners to experts.
MD-P300 Flip-chip Bonder
The MD-P300 Flip-chip Bonder is process-flexible, combining flip-chip and thermosonic bonding in a single, small-footprint solution.The MD-P300 contributes to the cost-effective production (high yield, high throughput) of value-added devices. The MD-P300 can achieve high speed and high accuracy bonding through its low gravity point and lightweight bonding head. The MD-P300 supports 300 mm (12") wafers, and is an ideal solution for COB hybrid assembly in combination with an in-line Panasonic SMT placement machine.The MD-P300 is capable of fast cycle times and a placement accuracy of +/-5 μm at 0.5 seconds per IC (dry run) - with thermosonic processes at 0.65 seconds, including process times.
