Single Seam Stuffed Converter Design for Thinwall Substrates 1999-01-3628

Single seam stuffed converters are often used to house ceramic substrates due to the simplicity and low tooling cost of the canning process. However, stuffing thinwall substrates requires careful GBD (gap bulk density) control because of their low isostatic strengths. Statistical simulation results indicate that the stuffing process can be performed within the required GBD range of 0.8 to 1.2 g/cm3 using vermiculite mats with the current tolerance specifications. A nominal value of 0.925 g/cm3 is recommended to minimize substrate breakage. Experimental results show that prototypes can be built with a GBD accuracy of 0.05 g/cm3. This paper describes the requirements needed to design and validate single seam stuffed converters.
