Blue Mill

Device Pre-Cavitation, Milling & Chip-off Machine

Every lab can now produce accurate, reproducible pre-cavitated devices -- ready for final decapsulation with RAPIDETCH, other chemical decapsulators, or plasma decapsulation systems. Chip-off.

Flip-chip and power chip mechanical pre-decapsulation is now straightforward and accurate.  In digital forensics, Blue Mill provides negligible heat generation during chip-off processes, maintaining important data evidence. 

BLUE MILL brings cost-effective, bench-top decapsulation and elastomer gasket milling to the electronics community. 

The package die, is mounted on a specially designed traveling table that oscillates in the X and Y directions. It is mechanically set to the required amplitude.

                                           

     Blue Mill with Illumination, independent X-Y and Machine Vision upgrades

 

A rotating tool, controlled in the Z-Direction, provides reproducible grinding to be carried out to a specific thickness.
