Prodigy Dispenser

The Camalot® Prodigy™ dispensing system employs breakthrough technology innovations to enable higher process speeds, more precise accuracies, tighter tolerances, and higher yields. A state-of-the-art X Y gantry system is the heart of this next generation dispenser. Linear drive technology, refined motion control architecture, and a rigid, innovative frame design provide unmatched performance and reliability.

Camalot has released Dynamic Dual Head™ (DDH) which offers the unique ability to double dispense speed while maintaining the highest level of accuracy for both dispense pumps. The patented design corrects for part to part rotation in “real-time” allowing synchronous dispensing of both pumps. Camalot released NuJet™, a jetting technology for the Prodigy dispenser that eliminates the use of a needle and incorporates a state-of-the-art pneumatic actuator that generates an operating frequency of up to 300Hz. For more information see Options below under Enhanced Features.

High-Speed and Extremely Accurate Dispensing
Advanced linear-drive architecture, combined with exceptional frame stability enables greater precision at higher speeds, resulting in consistently higher yields. The Camalot Prodigy boasts a +/- 35µ 3 Sigma dot placement accuracy at full speed.

Large Board Capability
Innovative board staging option can double or even triple the dispense area in the X direction, allowing product of >900mm to be processed.

Controlled Heating for a Repeatable Process
Contact and non-contact heating in several configurations including heated lift chucks ensures that dispense materials are at a controlled, constant temperature for repeatable, controllable material flow rates for underfill and encapsulation.

Plug and Play Architecture
Constantly changing needs in dispense processing require flexibility in system configuration. The Prodigy’s features are easily field upgraded, due to ‘plug and play’ compatibility and simplicity. They can be retrofitted in the field, including heat, pumps, weight scale, 2nd Z-axis, and even the conveyor system.

Independent Dual Head
Independent Dual Head configurability allows dispensing of different materials within one process. Both Z-axes are independently controlled, facilitating both high positional accuracy and fast axis movement.

Synchronous Dual Head Mode
Synchronous Dual Head Mode operates both pumps simultaneously and reduces dispense time by approximately 50%.

Automatic Vision Alignment
The Prodigy features automatic vision for both fiducial alignment and manual teaching of programs. Fiducial images are taught and saved to an onboard library; in addition, it works as an image recognition system so that any unique feature can be used for alignment. Camalot’s edge detection vision alignment is the fastest and most accurate positioning method available. A one-snap operation finds all four edges of die up to 25mm square, and automatically adjusts needle path for variations in X,Y, and theta placement, die width, and edge parallelism.

Pipeline Conveyor Mode
Pipeline conveyor mode allows parallel product transfer within the machine, reducing transfer time from input buffer or preheat to dispense station in as little as 2.5 seconds, down from a standard 5 - 6 seconds. For a process that currently has a 25 second cycle time, this provides an additional 10% in UPH!

Benchmark User Interface with Flip Chip Calculator
Easy to learn and use, ITW EAE’s Benchmark software is powerful yet intuitive, and offers enhanced functionality and features such as a flip chip calculator for underfill. It outputs accurate volume and weight details by allowing precise weight data to be entered into the program, reducing setup time and scrapped parts.

Enhanced Technology

Dynamic Dual Head (DDH)
The proprietary design of Dynamic Dual Head (DDH) provides the only fast and fully accurate solution for dual head simultaneous dispensing. The DDH option uses a unique and patented mini XY drive system on a second Z-Axis to correct “real-time” and allow synchronous dispensing of both pumps regardless of part to part rotation. This technique guarantees increased productivity whilst maintaining yields through unsurpassed accuracy.

IR Temperature Sensors
Patent pending, closed-loop monitoring of the PCB/substrate temperature ensures dispenser process stability and yield improvements for underfill applications.

NanoShot is the next generation of “jetting” technology. Offering high speed - Up to 600 Hz, and ultra-fine resolution, with dot sizes < 300 microns, this patent pending pump features state-of-the-art motion control technology, simple maintenance, quick changeover, and a low cost of ownership. Needle Cleaner/Detector
A vacuum-based cleaning station ensures cleanliness of needle/nozzle. A detector is used to verify needle straightness and presence, compatible with 12–32 gauge needles.

NuJet Jetting Pump
NuJet eliminates use of a needle and incorporates a contact jetting technique to displace the dispense material. Controlling the piston with a pneumatic actuator and closed-loop software achieves a high degree of accuracy and repeatability for consistent process results.

Servo-drive Auger Screw Pumps
Camalot offer 2 types of Auger pump both controlled with a precise servo drive system. The 635SD series are typically used for finer feature dots and lines of high viscosity material. The 680SD pumps delivers high flow rates and also incorporate a patented positive shutoff that eliminates dripping of lower viscosity materials. For highly abrasive materials both pump systems offer more wear resistant carbide auger screws.

SmartStream® Pump Technology
SmartStream is a unique patented non-contact dispense method designed and manufactured by Camalot. A controlled stream of material is dispensed using positive displacement with a piston, which does not contact seat or nozzle. SmartStream dispenses a column of material with each cycle instead of a single sphere.

Dual-Mode Weight Scale
A patented closed-loop weighing process measures dispense patterns and automatically compensates for material viscosity for maximum accuracy.

Paste Height Monitor™
The Paste Height Monitor is designed to prevent defects caused by inadequate volumes of paste on the stencil. It combines advanced software and sensor technology to accurately monitor the paste bead for volume consistency. Upper and lower limit roll-height monitoring eliminates insufficient or excess paste volumes. It is a non-contact solution that can automatically add more paste to the stencil as it is needed.

Paste Temperature Monitor
Temperature monitoring ensures proper paste viscosity to avoid bridging and voiding. MPM patent-pending paste temperature monitor allows paste to be measured in the cartridge or on the stencil.

The PrinTrack feature adds traceability, data harvesting, and reporting to your printing process. With PrinTrack, you always have an easy access to a comprehensive history, detailing:
How your product was printed | When it was printed | The process parameters used to print the board | All pertinent information that can be used to track products or troubleshoot the process if needed. | A flexible web reporting interface can be user-configured to produce traceability reports.

Quick Release Squeegee
New quick release squeegee blades makes changing blades quick and easy with no tools required. It takes less than 30 seconds to change the blade.

RapidClean™ Stencil Cleaner
The RapidClean stencil cleaner is a high-speed stencil cleaning solution that improves cleaning performance and cuts cycle time.
