Advances in Heated Dispense Process

Thermal Imaging Camera proves the success of a Heated Dispense Process

GRAND JUNCTION, CO ― June 2016 ― GPD Global introduces the NEW TempView Thermal Imaging System that ensures the success of heated dispensing processes like Underfill, Encapsulations, Dam and Fill, and more. The TempView Thermal Imaging System monitors the temperature of the entire substrate for complete heat profile characterization. Regions of the product may be selected for monitoring during the heating process. Now you can accurately monitor temperature of specific devices to be sure they are up to temperature before starting a process.

TempView Imaging System captures and displays subtle thermal patterns and small temperature differences (Figure 1) with a high sensitivity detector. The undiluted thermal image shows hidden heat patterns that point out hot spots, energy waste, cool areas, etc. This allows you to instantly recognize where the problematic heat pattern is located. Now you can regulate heat to various devices/components as needed and be confident that devices are reaching the programmed temperature before a process starts. In addition, the gantry can wait in a cool area during the temperature monitoring process, preventing overheating of the pump and Z-axis.

Unlike the Single Point monitoring system, the TempView Thermal Imaging System provides a full and complete thermal image of the substrate. TempView Thermal Imaging System monitors temperature in various zones of the substrates, ensuring the areas to be processed are at set temperature. Process results are enhanced with the zones to be processed at the correct temperature.

The TempView Thermal Imaging System mounts above the work area of a dispensing system for a complete view of the work area (Figure 2), with the primary focus on the substrate. The imaging system software programs are designed to allow you to highlight regions of the substrate as needed; the system is notified when the substrate reaches the programmed temperature.

Use TempView Thermal Imaging System as a reliable way to ensure the success of your heated processes. For more details, please contact GPD Global +1 (970)245 0408 or request@gpd-global.com
