Wafer and Pick Plates (WAP) is a business process improvement process that focuses on increasing the speed of automated processes. Companies that have an area of high demand for wafer cutting and wafer picking often find that they are having issues meeting the production demands of these highly specialized and high-volume operations. Improving the speed of these processes not only increases efficiency but also reduces the downtime for both customers and businesses. San Jose machine shops offer several types of Wafer Pick Place services to meet all of the requirements of the customers.
The main equipment used for Wafer and Pick Plates are the roller or die cutting machines that are found in most food processing plants and most paper plants. These machines are called roller mixers because they use two rollers to transfer the thin sheets of wafers onto a metal plate. The machines have a feed roller which moves the wafer directly into the cutting machine and the die. The other rollers on the machines combine with the feed roller to produce the desired result. Many pick place machines will combine the two rollers to produce a single die. These machines are called double slice machines and are typically used to cut larger pieces of metals such as sheet metal, aluminum and stainless steel.
San Jose machines can also perform other processing tasks such as wrapping, piercing and other metal finishing operations. This means that the machines offer a full range of services from basic thinning and straightening operations to complete coating and fluting of heavy metals. Many pick and place machines offer a wide range of pre-programmed menu options that can be used in combination with various processing functions. The machines offer complete automation of the entire process, including temperature control, feed calibration, non-contact feeding and many other management features. These wide ranging capabilities make the machines an ideal choice for companies who have high volume operations.
Pick and place machines have several advantages over other types of machines in terms of their speed and ease of use. The machines generally operate at high speeds and provide consistent results. They can handle large volume operations and are highly effective. They are also energy efficient, requiring very little electricity to operate.
Pick and place machines have a number of unique features such as non-contact feeding, which allows the wafers to stick to the heated surface. The machines offer a tight seal with no air leaks, which allows the precision and accuracy of the finished product to increase. Some machines are equipped with computerized controls, which allow the users to manually adjust the temperature of the wafer mix. The machines can also be equipped with temperature indicators, which notify the user of any changes in the temperature.
Pick and place machines are manufactured by a number of the world's most experienced metal working equipment manufacturers. Many of the manufacturers offer a full range of single and multiple machine applications. Many of the manufacturers manufacture their machines in the United States and have them undergo rigorous testing. Most of the machines are designed to be modular and easy to maintain. All of these factors add to the reliability and stability of the machines.
