MICROSNAP Knuckle joint press

Expanding machines for tape

The distance from chip to chip = blade width + kerf after dicing. For following processes like picking up, sometimes a wider distance is needed. The diced wafer will be expanded on tape. 

Our Expanders are compact table top machines. The expansion width can be adjusted within a determined area.

The semi-automatic machines are equipped with a pre-heatable chuck. Pre-heating time can be adjusted.

The so called "knuckle joint" presses are also available for expanding purpose or just for mounting rings with tape. The amount of expanding is limited by the hight of the rings, no heating chuck. Optional with take up core or cutter.  

All machines are available for all sizes of wafers/rings
