Industries Will Display the Latest WaferMate and WaferWare
Software at the SemiconWest 2010 Show
02, 2010 - Anaheim, CA - CHAD Industries announced
today that has developed wafer-handling capabilites for Sapphire
wafers used in the LED market.
As production demand increases for LED production, more and
more OEM manufacturers are being asked by the end user to provide
fully automated solutions for their process tool. CHAD has adapted
the standard WaferMate200 workcell to handle the smaller 2”,
4”, and 6” sapphire wafer requirements.
“We have developed a standard suite of tooling options
to permit a wide range of LED applications using our standard
WaferMate200 platform,” says Scott Klimczak – President
of CHAD Industries. “This is another example where CHAD
can provide all of the customization so that our customer’s
OEM process tool can remain standard. This approach allows our
OEM customers in the LED market to concentrate on their core
competency (the process tool), and allows CHAD to concentrate
on our core competence (wafer automation).”
CHAD’s capabilities for handling smaller sapphire wafers
was exhibited in their booth at the recent SemiconWest show in
San Francisco in July. CHAD’s WaferMate200 workcell was
tooled to handle 2” sapphire wafers and was loading and
unloading a Veeco Instruments Inc. 3D non-contact ContourGT-X8
inspection tool during a live demonstration.
LED wafer handling solutions can be applied to process tools
at different stages of manufacture and for different types
of manufacture – including metrology inspection and measurement,
stud bumping, and solder bumping.
