Vacuum assisted, small scale
sintering system SIN 20

For R&D and small series production

The new sinter equipment SIN 20 is developed to support R&D and institutes in setup, evaluation and optimization of sintering processes.

The SIN 20 is using PINK’s well known, approved and patented equilibrates-vacuumtechnology, based on the technical principle of pressure equalization. This allows sintering in perfect N2 atmosphere as well as in reductive atmosphere like formic acid. Cu substrates as well as substrates with an Au or Ag finish can be sintered.

  • Flexible top tooling system (high force Softtool or Hardtool)
  • Target applications:
    – Die attach on substrate and lead frame
    – Attach of substrate to baseplate
    – Die top interconnect
    – High power LED attach
