Apply unique engineering expertise to transform large format material.

The Garnet micromachining platform is ESI’s low cost of ownership platform built in China for fast delivery to Chinese manufacturing. Optimized to deliver high volume production throughput for laser drilling on large format materials at the  highest accuracy of a mid range laser on a 300x300mm stage. The platform takes advantage of ESI’s built-in-design extendibility  for multiple lasers, optics and stage configurations to meet the short ramp time needed to build your next device.

The Garnet can be easily configured to accommodate a wide variety of laser sources with different powers, wavelengths and pulse widths, from nanosecond to femtosecond, to optimize processes for a broad spectrum of materials. An ESI-proprietary real-time control system synchronizes the timing of laser pulses with laser beam positioning and movement of the work surface.

High Capacitance MLCC Tester

Allegro performs high-throughput production electrical testing of multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) and is designed to meet challenges faced by MLCC manufacturers. Allegro allows customers to verify quality and ensure accurate specifications for MLCCs used in a variety of applications, in the manufacture of high-quality printed circuit boards used in nearly every type of electronic device.

Although Allegro can process up to 20,000 chips per minute, ESI’s advanced rotary handling technology minimizes the potential for damage to the chips as the result of testing is, thus increasing yield.

Allegro has the flexibility to test MLCCs from <1pF to 100µF, and provides process flexibility and maximum utilization to lower testing costs. Multiple tests are simultaneously performed on chips as small as 01005 (M0402 metric) on using ESI’s patented rotary handler technology for continuous automation and reliable productivity.
