Precision is a world leader in the
development and manufacture of process carriers for the electronics industry today.
Bridge clips are used in assembly processes where controlled forces are
required during package assembly. A typical example would be a heat
spreader attach process where mechanical forces are required to evenly
spread an applied thermal interface material. This mechanically fixtured
system is then thermally processed to cure the epoxy.
Controlled mechanical forces, preserved and maintained through a variety of
thermal environments and thousands of thermal cycles are essential for
consistent package manufacture. Auer has proven designs targeting +/- 0.2lb
and lifetime consistency at 0.3lb over 10,000 cycles.
clips can be supplied in leaf spring or spring assisted piston
configurations. Auer has supported conventional applications such as
spreader attach, or unconventional, such as component attach, during a
chip-on-flex process. Attach features to process carriers support both
manual and fully automated attach and release methodologies.
