Dual W-5910iE Quartz Crystal Etching System

  • Quartz Crystal SMD devices are adjusted to target frequency by Ion Beam Etching of the electrode material
  • The motional parameters of the crystal remain virtually unchanged
  • Sixty four (64) parts are processed simultaneously for high system throughput
  • Small crystal electrodes are as easy to precisely adjust as large electrodes
  • Super High Drive capability
  • Measured parameters are checked against easy to define Q.C. limits
  • Supports small SMD sizes including 3.2x5.0, 3.2x2.5, 2.5x2.0, 2.0x1.6, 1.6x1.25
  • Transport boats carry SMD devices in 16x20 S&A flip pallets
  • Dual boat configuration holds four pallets per run with a total of 1280 parts
