Fea­tures:MLCC Stacker

  • Ease of oper­a­tion through touch screen mon­i­tor with advanced user inter­face
  • Ceram­ic tape stack­ing from 4″ (102 mm) to 8″ (203 mm)
  • Auto­mat­ic load­ing from up to 6 dif­fer­ent trays
  • Auto­mat­ic removal of mylar from ceram­ic sheet
  • Hydraulic pres­sure stack­ing, up to 20 tons with pre­cise heat­ing options
  • Auto­matic vision align­ment for pre­cise lay­er to lay­er ± 0.01 mm place­ment accu­ra­cy

Pacif­ic Tri­net­ics Corporation’s Semi-Auto­mat­ic Stack and Tack Sys­tem is engi­neered and built to meet the demand­ing require­ments for the assem­bly of today’s mul­ti­lay­er ceram­ic com­po­nents.

The sys­tem pro­pri­etary soft­ware and vision align­ment sys­tem ensure stack­ing accu­ra­cy of +/-5 μ with max­i­mum stack­ing thick­ness of 0.4”. The touch screen, recipe dri­ven mon­i­tor allows the oper­a­tor full con­trol over tack­ing tem­per­a­ture and cycle time.

The green tape is placed onto the Load­ing Stage. The Stage then moves to the align­ment sta­tion where the machine vision sys­tem auto­mat­i­cal­ly adjusts the X-Y and Theta to match the desired posi­tion, assur­ing a lay­er accu­ra­cy of +/- 5 microns.

Once the align­ment is final­ized, the trans­fer arm moves the tape from the Align­ment Sta­tion to the Tack­ing stage, where a vac­u­um chuck secure­ly holds a pre­ci­sion build-up plate. The heat­ing pad with a vari­able tem­per­a­ture con­trol pro­vides lay­er-to-lay­er off­set on the stack weld to pro­vide more uni­form and con­sis­tent stack­ing.

The stack­er is equipped with an option­al auto­mat­ic load­ing mech­a­nism with a num­ber of car­tridges spec­i­fied by the cus­tomer. The auto­mat­ic load­ing mech­a­nism also fea­tures a Mylar remover, which removes the Mylar with­out any inter­fer­ence to the ceram­ic sheet and places the sheet at the vac­u­um stage for auto­mat­ic vision align­ment for pre­cise lay­er-to-lay­er place­ment.
