At the heart of the Desktop ACF Laminating system is the ACF module. This module positions the ACF tape accurately above the pre-loaded parts in the tooling. Prior to laminating / pre-Bonding the ACF to the substrate, the ACF tape is pre-cut at the required length of ACF from a reel of ACF. It is cut using the half-cut method which cuts the actual ACF material. The cover-layer is used for tape transport.
