For development and Production of LTCC/HTCC

Punching Machine PAM S-series

The PAM S-series of punching machines are mainly designed for LTCC/HTCC applications, where it is required to be able to punch different patterns. The PAM S-series uses single (and multi) pin punching tools to form vias and registration holes in green ceramic tapes, either on carrier film or free-standing. Every hole size is punched using a different tool. Depending on the machine version, either up to 4 or up to 8 different punching tool dimensions can be installed on the machine. Special multiple pins (gang) puching tools are available in order to punch grid type pattern to increase productivity. Numerous version are available, starting with the basic unit, where the operator places single sheet on a alignment table, the machine picks the sheet with a vacuum tool and punches it according to the program, up to the fully automatic version, where individual sheets are cut from a roll, punched and transfered to a magazine. Machine comes (standard) with pin breakage control and sheet vision alignment for sheet alignment against pre-punched registration holes.

Available single pin punching tools
  1. pneumatically driven, diameters 0.1 to 1.0 mm
  2. pneumatically driven, square 0.2 x 0.2 to 1 x 1 mm
  3. pneumatically driven, diameters 1.1 to 5 mm
Available grid punching tools
  1. grid type tools available up to 24 round pins
  2. max. punch diameter not bigger than 0.5 mm depends on pattern
