Kulicke & Soffa introduces LED package singulation blades

Kulicke & Soffa Industries Inc (K&S) of Fort Washington, PA, USA has launched its new Optoceramic and OptoPCB package singulation blades for the LED market.

Opto hub and hubless blades significantly improve LED package singulation quality, precision and productivity, by providing improved stability and longer blade life, says the firm. Features of the Opto blades include: attractive cost of ownership through consistently longer blade life, 100% pre-dressed to shorten on-site dressing steps, and an optional kerf control feature to meet special application requirements. Significant UPH improvement has been observed in some applications by enabling higher feed speeds.

Optoceramic blade utilizes unique electroplating technology to achieve up to 3 times the blade life of traditional resin/metal bonded blades, with minimal kerf change and blade wear. The new design minimizes machine downtime for blade changes, achieves the highest cut quality, and allows higher feed speeds, increasing productivity.

OptoPCB blade for PCB and composite material substrates has an optimized design which provides uniform vertical wear, maintaining cutting power and consistent sawn package dimensions, thus eliminating in-process dressing steps. The optional ‘slits’ feature improves blade cooling, achieving high singulation quality without typical whisker issues.
