MPP engineering team developed a solution for extending the life of wedges for gold wire bonding contributing to improved quality, productivity and reduction of cost.
Results at customers’ sites show an increase of more than 100% in wedge life.
This achievement is a result of an extensive development effort and a deep understanding of the mechanism causing wedge erosion.
