Industries Installs Fully Automated Bond Shear Inspection Workcells
December 14, 2011 - Anaheim, CA - CHAD Industries announced today that it has
installed multiple fully automated Bond Shear inspection workcells for 300mm wafer
In order to meet the need for clean, hands-off 300mm handling and Bond Shear Inspection,
CHAD integrated it’s world class WaferMate300-1™ automated wafer
handling workcell with Nordson DAGE’s 4300 Bond Shear inspection tool. The result is a
fully integrated system that automatically delivers 300mm wafers to the bond shear test
tool. The entire system is enclosed for operator safety & clean wafer handling (Class-2),
and includes factory automation features (E84 and E87) for automated FOUP delivery to the
workcell. SECS/GEM communications and integrated RFID features ensures that the correct
wafer lot is being inspected, and allows the wafer inspection data to be uploaded to the
factory host computer without manual intervention. See link below for more information
