Method for an ultrasonic, gang dispense aperture for MAP packaging

Disclosed is a method for an ultrasonic, gang dispense aperture for manufacturing application protocol (MAP) packaging. Benefits include improved functionality and improved performance.

Background

              Conventional squeegee and mesh screen stenciling can trap air in the dispensed material. When this condition occurs, the transferring material is not applied evenly across the MAP package. Full coverage of the package does not occur.

General description

              The disclosed method is an ultrasonic, gang dispense aperture for MAP packaging. The method is comprised of two parts:

•             A ported aperture that can be configured to individual packages on any configuration of a MAP substrate

•             An ultrasonic table that is energized during the dispensing of the material

              The key elements of the disclosed method include:

•             A singulated socket aperture that is designed to control the amount of material dispensed per package

•             The underlying surface of the aperture that is coated with an antistick material

Advantages

              The disclosed method provides advantages, including:
•             Improved functionality due to evenly dispensing material across any MAP type substrate
•             Improved performance due to assisting the material flow as it is dispensed onto the package because of using ultrasonic energy

•             Improved performance due to aiding in the removal of any air bubbles that may be captured in the material during...
