The Palomar 9000 Wedge Bonder is a high-speed fine wire wedge and ribbon bonder with optional interchangeable clamps for 45-60° and 90° deep access bonding on a single machine.

The large 304 x 152mm work area provides users flexibility to work with many different work holder sizes and tooling. For high-volume production requirements, online conveyor with automated part loading are easily integrated.

These 10 key differentiators help customers achieve modern wedge bond requirements:

  • Large work area: 304 x 152 mm
  • Bond Head rides on Theta for better process control
  • No surface touch using Auto Focus and automated height learning
  • High-speed: 7 Wires Per Second
  • 45-60° to 90° wire feed clamp interchangeability
  • Round wire and ribbon wire can be performed using the same clamp
  • Adaptive Bond Deformation standard
  • Voice Coil driven bond head for precision force control
  • High precision: 1um, 3 sigma
  • Portability of programs between other Palomar wire bonders

VisionPilot® with Radar Referencing® software enables faster automated finding of package references, improved vision finding, and the ability to find components that blend into the package (such as gold on gold). This is especially useful with borderless capacitors on a package, molly tabs and horizontal feed through pins.
