Blue Mill

low speed IC and pcb mill

Milling, Chip-off and IC Pre-Cavitation Machine

Introducing the Blue Mill Low speed milling machine. Part of ULTRA TEC's Thin Blue (product) Line.

NO COMPUTER REQUIRED!

Every lab can now produce accurate chip-offs, reproducible pre-cavitated devices -- ready for testing or final decapsulation with chemicals or plasma.

Low Speed Milling = Fast, Accurate, Repeatable Results

Flip-chip and power chip mechanical pre-decapsulation and matter subtraction 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 Chip-off, bench-top decapsulation and elastomer gasket milling to the electronics community. 

The packaged die or PCB, 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.
