Groove Design



Carbide Groove Tips are specifically designed for thin die applications with die thickness ≤0.1mm. Tips used for Thin die applications requires stable vacuum force while maximizing tip to die or device surface contact area.

The design of our Carbide Groove Tips features a central vacuum hole, connected to multiple vacuum channeling grooves on the surface of the tip, which enhance seven and distributed suction force coverage to specific areas of the die or device. Our proprietary groove designs help to hold the thin dies gently and securely during the application process.

Oricus manufactures a wide range of customized CarbideGroove Tips with sizes and configurations designed to suit your application. We have the capabilities to machine micro grooves with widths as narrow as 0.2mm.


  • Offers a regulated suction program to maximize suction force and tip to die contact
  • Can be made in Round, Square, Rectangular and Custom outer profiles with different groove designs
  • Groove options available between X profiles, Plus profiles, Asterisk profiles, Multi-Groove profiles or Scattered profiles
  • Harder than Rubber, Engineering Plastics and Alloy Steel Groove Tips
  • Highest wear resistance amongst Rubber, Engineering Plastics and Alloy Steel Groove Tips
  • Highest temperature resistance amongst Rubber, Engineering Plastics and Alloy Steel Groove Tips


  • Minimizes the formation of voids on the substrate after the thin die has been placed or bonded
  • Provides distributed vacuum forces to selected locations of dies or devices
  • Compared to Flat Tip or Vacuum Relief designs, Groove Tips offers a balanced mix of surface contact and vacuum suction
  • Longest tool life compared to Rubber, Engineering Plastics and Alloy Steel Groove Tips
