A Start Need Not Be Hard: News on Making Battery Modules by Wirebonding
Here we go!
Article published on SMT Insights
Many applications require battery packs of different types and quantities. A central production step is the interconnection of the battery cells. But which technology is the most suitable? More on this in the new article by Dr. Josef Sedlmair, F&S BONDTEC – on SMT Insights.
2nd Virtual Battery Exhibition
Electromobility and battery production are taking off worldwide, and this is just the beginning. To make the right decisions early and be competitive, you need to be at the pulse of innovative production solutions to produce low-cost, high-quality and equally sustainable batteries.
It was the second time we were at the Virtual Battery Exhibition with a virtual booth and a short webinar. If you did not have the opportunity to participate live, we put the recording of the seminar on the topic “A Beginner’s Guide to Making Battery Modules by Wirebonding: A Start Need Not Be Hard” online.

Clamp tear vs. table tear
Due to frequent questions about Clamp Tear and Table Tear, we have worked out the following section with the difference between the two. You can find these and other questions and answers in the FAQ section on our website.
At Clamp Tear (available at 5X30machines) a wire clamp, which is placed behind the bonding tool, executes a motion to tear the wire. The bond tool remains on the second bond. Thus the force of the wire tear puts no stress on the second bond.
At Table Tear (only on Deep Access Wedge-Wedge) there is a wire guide behind the bonding tool. The bond head moves up and down in tear direction and then tears off the wire. The tear counter and the tear height can be set individually in the software.
100th machine of the Series 58 shipped
We have reason to celebrate! We recently delivered the hundredth machine of the Series 58. Our top-of-the-line table-top model is used in over 21 countries. As its nickname “The Production Machine” suggests, it combines the flexibility known from F&S BONDTEC and high-quality requirements in a highly productive table wire bonder with more than 1 wire/second. It is often used for small to medium production volumes – this makes it the ideal in-house production machine – to protect your technology and short time-to-market.
