Everything That You Need To Know About ACF Bonding
ACF bonding stands for Anisotropic Conductive Adhesive Bonding. The term might be a bit confusing for the ordinary individual, however do bear in mind ACF bonding does have some very useful applications. The process which deals with the creation of electrical conductive adhesive bonds between flexible and rigid circuit boards, glass panel displays and flexes foils with less than 30 microns is given the name of ACF bonding. The essential characteristics of this process are heating and cooling of the adhesive under pressure.
ACF bonding continues to be the most popular form of ACA’s due to its ability of controlling the volume of materials and their density in any given sample. Traditionally they are used in interconnected displays, however in recent years they have slowly and steadily started making their way to surface mount technologies. This is due to the fact that it has the very uncanny ability of making interconnections in a very small area of space. They are also widely used in lower end applications such as the assembling of chips and RFID antennae’s. ACA’s are usually a cheaper alternative than ACF’s however they do not offer the same quality of particle dispersion as them.
Whenever I have had a use for an ACF machine I have contacted Advance Integrated technologies (AIT) , as they have a number of highly affordable machines at their disposal at the most affordable of prices. They have a number of options available for you, and you can even rent ACF bonding equipment from them. I have made use of their services on many occasions and I can honestly say that they are amongst the most professional service providers that I have ever met. If you ever need ACF bonding be sure to look them up.
