A new method has been introduced to apply Laird Performance Materials’ thermal management die cut pads while reducing total cost of ownership, with the TIM Pick. It offers a more robust, reproducible and reliable application process as compared to traditional ‘peel and stick’. TIM Pick uses robotic motion control with an innovative ‘pick head’.
This head enables the cutting, removal from an uncut TIM sheet and placement of a ‘cut to dimension’ pad onto an electronic component in one process step. TIM Pick scales well to a fully integrated assembly process including automated feed, shuttle and in-line inspection systems.
In addition to reducing costs and improving speeds, TIM Pick can be used to apply materials that are traditionally difficult to hand apply, thereby reducing scrap and enabling the use of materials with improved properties.
TIM Pick reduces Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by:
TIM Pick enables the supply and application of extremely soft, highly compliant, dimensionally stable pad materials
TIM Pick enables:
