Process integrated Quality Control system PiQC

The Hesse GmbH has implemented a new Process integrated Quality Control system (PiQC) that is unique to the global wire bonding market. A sensor integrated into the Transducer allows for the first time a multi-dimensional signal analysis of the bond process.
PiQC calculates a bond quality index value in realtime, using significant signals from the wire-bonding process.

Advantages for volume production

  • Inspection of every bond
  • No mechanical load of the bond connection
  • Product specific configuration of the quality control system

Feedback from the process

  • Mechanical oscillation of the wedge
  • Friction at bond surface
