Industries Announces First WaferMate System Sold into
16, 2010 - Anaheim, CA - CHAD Industries announced
today that it has sold its first WaferMate automated wafer
handling workcell to a customer location in China.
As the Chinese Semiconductor business ramps to increase its
capabilities and capacities, automation is becoming more and
more important. With the growth in China comes new wafer handling
challenges. The WaferMate is designed to be easily modified
and easily integrated into new advanced wafer processes.
CHAD Industries has been selling wafer handling equipment in
China for the past 5 years, but this marks the first sale of
the new WaferMate platform. The WaferMate platform provides
a lower cost solution, with a suite of applications for thin
wafer handling, warped wafer handling, loading and unloaded,
and a number of other non-standard wafer handling capabilities.
CHAD is delighted to have been selected by a customer in China
to supply their wafer handling automation. This sale of our
first WaferMate workcell in China marks a natural progression
for CHAD as we expand our install base worldwide to support
our OEM customers,” says Scott Klimczak, president of
CHAD Industries. “Over the years our OEM customers
have relied on CHAD to provide the best equipment and support
wherever their business takes them. We already have other
wafer handler equipment installed in China, and other WaferMate
throughout the Pacific Rim region, so we are naturally
excited to receive this order to expand the WaferMate workcell
into the Chinese domestic market.”
Using CHAD WaferMate workcells to automate any wafer handling
process increases productivity and quality, while reducing
material breakage due to manual handling.
