Ceramics and Ultrasonics
use of a CERAMIC resonator, such as ALU Oxide or Silicon Carbide
makes it possible to design high frequency transducers for wire
bonding with the same power as lower frequency transducers. The
CERAMIC 138, when clamped with tool, becomes 135 kHz. Its also
unique in that it has a second frequency of 97. Used in tandem, the
97/135 produced additional improvements in the quality of bonds.

The CERAMIC advantage is
superior sound, speed, and a surface finish that is without the
voids found in metals. Since the introduction of Ceramically
Enhanced Wire Bonding Transducers thousands of transducers have

Impedance levels of 10-15 are standard for the CERAMIC 138 and have
never been duplicated by metal stacking.

See how Uthe's dual frequency, ceramically
enhanced approach provides more power and control for precise
bonding requirements. If your organization is still using stacked
metal configurations, the time is now to upgrade to Uthe's
ceramically enhanced method.
