GPD Global Software Optimizes Underfill
Optimized underfill process.
Grand Junction, CO — GPD Global's FLOware® Operating Software now offers patent-pending optimization for complex underfill processes.

It can be difficult to program an optimized routine for products that have multiple sizes of components to be underfilled. The difficulty is in the timing of each pass to ensure an optimal flow time. The FLOware software's UltiPath optimization routines allow the user to program a component with the desired volume, number of passes and delays between passes, and lets the system determine the best order and gantry path to complete the underfill process with minimal gantry delays.

According to the company, UltiPath underfill optimization increases customer throughput and reduces program setup time by automatically determining the fastest, optimized dispense path and eliminating the need for the operator to guess at the best route. This optimization is done on-the-fly so that changes to the program are handled automatically.

FLOware software optimizes the best gantry path for the end-user. The optimization ensures the quickest cycle times for complex underfill processes. The result is reduced setup times, quick updates for product changes, and the addition or deletion of components.

Underfill processes are enhanced with the company's PCD Dispensing technology for a truly volumetric process that maintains the programmed dispense quantity over the life of the syringe. To set up component volumes, a program can be run with component volume optimization that eases program setup by determining the appropriate dispense parameters.
