There are many times when simple manual processing of Microelectronic devices. The obvious reason would be increased production throughput. Least obvious reasons could be the reducing of process “touch time” or better process control.
Automated reflow process has been a challenge for traditional batch type reflow equipment. ATV has overcome this by the introduction of the i-Line systems. This system has full automation of loading and unloading with configurations of up to three (3) process chambers. This can all be incorporated into an existing or new automated production line.
HIGH VOLUME PRODUCTION
Our all-new and groundbreaking SRO i-Line is a high-volume production tool used for vacuum reflow soldering. Implementing this tool within the ATV single chamber approach will help to fulfill all your current and future demands. Since 1982 ATV‘s single-chamber approach has proven equally successful in the R&D and pilot line production market.
With more than 550 devices in use worldwide ATV is ready to step into high volume production with its brand-new SRO i-Line. This system can easily be upgraded from the basic one process chamber version to three process chambers all within the same footprint. Each chamber is individually programmable to perform its own process. This allows for the most flexible solution within your production.
The SRO i-Line comes standard with formic acid bubblers and auto-refill assembly. This in combination with the standard equipped vacuum pump guarantees the best reflow soldering results compared to any other standard equipment in the market. Formic acid together with vacuum results in significant void reduction over the full reflow soldering area as well as the entire product load.
With the new generation of flux-based solder pastes requiring a very low oxygen content to be present during the process run, the SRO i-Line has embedded this capability as a standard application to achieve a process environment in the sub-ppm range with minimal nitrogen consumption. Thanks to its flexible design the SRO i-Line can be tailored to your specific requirements – Manual Loading (ML), Cassette to Cassette (CTC) or directly placed into your automated production line (CB).
