Nordson MARCH, a Nordson company, took home an award for its FlexTRAK-CDS high-volume plasma system at a ceremony held in conjunction with the SMTA International conference in Rosemont, IL on September 27, 2016. The system removes contamination, etches surfaces to improve adhesion, and provides surface activation prior to die attach, wire bond, mold encapsulation, and underfill to lead frame strips, laminated substrates, and other strip-type electronic components.
Nordson MARCH received the 2016 Global Technology Award for its FlexTRAK®-CDS high-volume plasma system. The FlexTRAK-CDS is an innovative compact platform that delivers industry-leading throughput capacity with short cycle times. The system incorporates strip-handling capabilities to accommodate plasma treatment needs in backend semiconductor and electronics manufacturing operations.
“The FlexTRAK-CDS is a truly innovative product that provides unparalleled quality, treatment uniformity, process consistency, and that reduces device failures created by contaminants in the manufacturing process,” explained Jonathan Doan, director of marketing for Nordson MARCH. “We thank Global SMT & Packaging for this award.”
Entries were judged on innovation, speed/throughput improvements, quality contribution, cost benefits, environmental consideration, ease of use/implementation, and maintainability/repairability.
