3500E - Conventional 45 Degree Wire Feed
3600E - Deep Access 90 Degree Wire or Ribbon Feed

UNPARALLELED PERFORMANCE in ultrasonic, thermosonic and thermocompression fine wire, and ribbon. Unique design features qualify the 3536E Series for the most demanding microwave, semiconductor, R.F., and hybrid production where precision and repeatability are critical. With compact dimensions (14"h x 30"w x 28"d), rugged construction, a reputation for dependability and ease of maintenance, the West·Bond 3536E Series is the most versatile automatic wire bonder available today. The mechanism of this series was designed to mount above a customer's work handling system, to be confined entirely above the work plane, and so not to require any base or work platform: Custom mounting brackets can be designed to join to customer’s mechanism.

CONVERTIBILITY for a variety of automatic bonding functions is a feature available with West·Bond’s 3536E Series. A simple exchange of wire clamp assemblies, provided with this model, allows conventional 45º wire feed, deep access 90º wire or ribbon feed, and single point tab/lead bonding. All programmed bond variables and machine settings are retained in memory and retrieved automatically upon conversion.

PROTECTION AGAINST ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE is implemented by finishing exposed tool assemblies and other moving parts by Electro less Nickel plating, which is conductive; and all exposed painted parts with a powder-coated paint that is dissipative.

EASE OF PROGRAMMING through familiar Microsoft Windows software interfaced with the built-in Matrox Pattern Recognition System. Position and elevation coordinates are targeted by visual reference to the high-resolution 15" color flat panel LCD monitor operating with a vertically oriented auto focus camera for target alignment.

    ESD Protection

    Protection against Electrostatic Discharge is implemented by finishing exposed tool assemblies and other moving parts by Electroless Nickel plating, which is conductive; and all exposed painted parts with a powder-coated paint that is dissipative (1 - 10 M-ohms).

    Machine Configuration

    Microscope: Olympus SZ51-60E; 12 – 60X magnification (included)
