Molding is a process where micro chips are encapsulated in plastic. In line with the market trend toward SIP, exposed dies and more complex packages like dual side molding, Besi developed the large substrate molding machine Fico AMS-LM. The Fico AMS-LM can handle substrates of up to 102 x 280mm and can handle all current single and dual sided packages.

Large substrates allow a high board utilisation and in combination with deep vacuum, the unique clamp mechanism and the high output of the Fico AMS-LM, performance and yield increase significantly.
