Hot Bar Systems

The Hot Bar stand-alone systems are a line of semi-automatic and automatic systems developed for Hot Bar Reflow Soldering, Heat-Sealing and ACF-Bonding. The systems deliver high connection quality, high throughput and have a flexibility that meets even the most demanding manufacturing requirements.

The hot-bar systems allow for easy loading and unloading and accurate positioning of the parts into part specific product jigs. The heating element processes the parts to produce a reliable thermo-mechanical joint at a safe distance away from the operator. 

In most system layouts the processing takes place simultaneously to the loading/unloading of the part, improving operator output. Multiple heads inside one system enable a higher throughput. Alternatively it allows you to create multiple joints with different configurations to be made within one system. 


Jupiter ACF Bonding systems

Our Jupiter Hot Bar System for ACF Bonding includes both a pre-tacking and a final bonding process module. Two processing positions next to each other in one system makes it perfectly suitable for the ACF Bonding of dashboard component, ADAS Cameras, OLED lighting, sensors and many other applications.The modules and process settings can be used 1:1 in fully automated production lines, improving our customers “Time To Market” and improving the certainty in the PCP  (“Product Creation Process”).

Jupiter Heat Staking systems

AMADA WELD TECH’s Jupiter Heat Staking System is typically being purchased for parts which need a permanent (anti-tempering) mechanical joint between a thermoplastic part and non-plastic part. Depending on the production processes, a selection of bonding heads are available, featuring motorized drive systems, force- and position measurement for applications such as heat staking of electric motors, ADAS Cameras and heat staking on PCB’s.

Jupiter Hot Bar Bonding systems

AMADA WELD TECH’s Jupiter XS Hot Bar Bonding System is the smallest platform within the Jupiter System Series. It can be used for several applications, such as CCTV camera modules (Automotive), sensor array for digital X-ray devices (Medical), flex foil soldering for flexible electronics (Automotive) and soldering for wearable electronics (Medical). Depending on your application, several bond heads, force and stroke measurement, an automatic turntable and process monitoring can be integrated.
