  • Camalot Announces PCB Temperature Monitoring on Prodigy Dispenser to Ensure Underfill Process Stability

    Hopkinton, Massachusetts, May 20, 2019 – ITW EAE is introducing a patent pending option for the Camalot Prodigy dispenser that was developed to ensure process stability and increase yields for underfill applications. In applications where board heat is required, a constant product temperature through the dispense process is critical to ensure process stability and repeatability. Underfill materials vary in viscosity and filler types, therefore the heat requirement for the board also varies.

    The new IR (Infrared) Temperature Sensors measure in “real time” the top-side board temperature which allows the system to provide closed-loop control to maintain the product within the specified temperature range. 

    The sensors provide a closed loop, fail safe means to monitor and control the “top side” board temperature through each of the process zones (pre-heat, dispense heat and post-heat zones), which are typically used during the underfill process. The passive IR sensors can be configured in any or all three conveyor zones in single or dual lane systems.

    “Closed-loop control of the heat process is critical when dispensing underfill,” said Hugh Read, ITW EAE Dispenser Group Business Manager. “Yields are impacted due to poor capillary flow when the board temperature is outside of specified tolerance range. IR sensors ensure higher quality by improving heat stability during the dispense process.”

    Camalot is a brand of ITW EAE, a division of Illinois Tools Works, Inc. They are a leading manufacturer of automated dispensing equipment for the printed circuit board, semiconductor, hybrid, automotive, industrial and medical industries. ITW EAE brings together world-leading brands of electronics assembly equipment including MPM, Camalot, Electrovert, Vitronics Soltec, and Despatch. For more information visit www.itweae.com.

  • Camalot® Prodigy™ dispensing system
    Smarter, Faster and Highly Versatile<br />The Prodigy™ employs breakthrough technology to enable higher process speeds, more precise accuracies, tighter tolerances, and higher yields for the semiconductor market....

  • The Prodigy™ dispenser is designed and built to deliver high-speed, extremely accurate dispensing. A state-of-the-art XY gantry system is the heart of the system. A rigid frame design and advanced linear drive enables fast point to point moves, high accuracy and long term repeatable performance.

    NuJet™ is a new jetting technology for the Prodigy that eliminates the use of a needle and incorporates a state-of-the-art pneumatic actuator that generates an operating frequency of up to 300Hz.  

    Dynamic Dual Head™ (DDH) offers the unique ability to double dispense speed while maintaining the highest level of accuracy for both dispense pumps. The patented design corrects for part to part rotation in “real-time” allowing synchronous dispensing of both pumps. 

    New IR Temperature Sensors measure in “real time” the top-side board temperature. Closed-loop control maintains the product within the specified temperature range ensuring process stability and increasing yields for underfill applications
