The Camalot® Prodigy™ dispensing system employs breakthrough technology innovations to enable higher process speeds, more precise accuracies, tighter tolerances, and higher yields. A state-of-the-art X Y gantry system is the heart of this next generation dispenser. Linear drive technology, refined motion control architecture, and a rigid, innovative frame design provide unmatched performance and reliability.
Advanced linear drive architecture enables high speed and unsurpassed accuracies in the drive system and motion control system. Combined with exceptional frame stability, the Camalot Prodigy boasts a +/- 35µ 3Sigma specification for dot placement accuracy.
High-speeds, accuracies and consistent quality are achieved by combining state-of-the-art drive architecture with next-generation pump designs and advanced motion control schemes.
Innovative board staging option can double or even triple the dispense area in the X direction, allowing product of >900mm to be processed.
Contact and non-contact heating in several configurations including heated lift chucks ensures that dispense materials are at a controlled, constant temperature for repeatable, controllable material flow rates for underfill and encapsulation.
Constantly changing needs in dispense processing require flexibility in system configuration. The Prodigy’s features are easily field upgraded, due to ‘plug and play’ compatibility and simplicity. They can be retrofitted in the field, including heat, pumps, weight scale, 2nd Z-axis, and even the conveyor system.
Independent Dual Head configurability allows dispensing of different materials within one process. Both Z-axes are independently controlled, facilitating both high positional accuracy and fast axis movement.
Synchronous Dual Head Mode operates both pumps simultaneously and reduces dispense time by approximately 50%.
The Prodigy features automatic vision for both fiducial alignment and manual teaching of programs. Fiducial images are taught and saved to an onboard library; in addition, it works as an image recognition system so that any unique feature can be used for alignment. Camalot’s edge detection vision alignment is the fastest and most accurate positioning method available. A one-snap operation finds all four edges of die up to 25mm square, and automatically adjusts needle path for variations in X,Y, and theta placement, die width, and edge parallelism.
Pipeline conveyor mode allows parallel product transfer within the machine, reducing transfer time from input buffer or preheat to dispense station in as little as 2.5 seconds, down from a standard 5 - 6 seconds. For a process that currently has a 25 second cycle time, this provides an additional 10% in UPH!
Easy to learn and use, Speedline’s Benchmark software is powerful yet intuitive, and offers enhanced functionality and features such as a flip chip calculator for underfill. It outputs accurate volume and weight details by allowing precise weight data to be entered into the program, reducing setup time and scrapped parts.
NanoShot is the next generation of “jetting” technology. Offering high speed - Up to 600 Hz, and ultra-fine resolution, with dot sizes < 300 microns, this patent pending pump features state-of-the-art motion control technology, simple maintenance, quick changeover, and a low cost of ownership.
SmartStream is a unique patented non-contact dispense method designed and manufactured by Camalot. A controlled stream of material is dispensed using positive displacement with a piston, which does not contact seat or nozzle. SmartStream dispenses a column of material with each cycle instead of a single sphere.
Camalot offer 2 types of Auger pump both controlled with a precise servo drive system. The 635SD series are typically used for finer feature dots and lines of high viscosity material. The 680SD pumps delivers high flow rates and also incorporate a patented positive shutoff that eliminates dripping of lower viscosity materials. For highly abrasive materials both pump systems offer more wear resistant carbide auger screws.
The dual-mode weight scale patented closed-loop weighing process allows measurement of both global and actual dispense patterns for maximum accuracy. Changes in material viscosity are controlled with automatic compensation.
A vacuum-based cleaning station ensures cleanliness of needle/nozzle. A detector is used to verify needle straightness and presence, compatible with 12–32 gauge needles.
