Abstract

A force transducer has been developed with the capability of sensing three axis forces during automatic component handling in semiconductor manufacturing operations. It may be used to calibrate and monitor the impulse forces of surface mount component handlers, thereby reducing the risk of component damage during automatic insertion operations.
