Abstract

To avoid damaging MLC (multilayer ceramic) greensheets, hand contact must be avoided during various transfer operations. To transfer greensheets from trays for post-screening optical inspection and repair, a mechanical handler arrangement is used. The handler comprises a tray containing the greensheets to be processed, a carrier which is used to carry individual greensheets to the post-screening optical inspection and repair station, and a pickup mechanism used to pick up individual greensheets from the tray and transfer them to the carrier.
