The Disco DAD321 Dicing saw is an easy to use automatic/semi-automatic dicing saw capable of cutting wafers as large as 6 inches in diameter. While most NCF users are accustomed to the Micro-Automation Model 1006 dicing saw, the principles of operation of the Disco model are fortunately very similar. After passing the NCF safety exam, users can request training on this machine by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Those not trained can request an NCF work service order by contacting the lab manager.
