CHAD Industries to Exhibit Automated Handling of Electrostatic Carrier Wafers With Automated SMIF Pod Delivery at SEMICON West 2012
ANAHEIM, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/02/12 -- CHAD Industries announced today that they will demonstrate automated wafer handling of electrostatic wafers carriers with automated SMIF pod delivery during SEMICON West 2012 in San Francisco next month.
During the show, CHAD will be exhibiting their WaferMate300-2 wafer handling workcell running their latest WaferWare software. The workcell will be configured with both a 300mm FOUP loadport, and their 200mm SMIF-EZ loadport. This versatile 5th generation workcell uses proven handling techniques to automate standard, and non-standard, wafers for numerous OEM equipment manufacturers.
The SMIF-EZ loadport will be populated with 200mm electrostatic carrier wafers from CHAD's Technology partner Beam Services. The carriers will have a smaller diameter wafer mounted to them to demonstrate how wafers that have typically been considered "challenging to handle," can now be mounted to an electrostatic carrier and treated like a standard wafer during handling and wafer processing.

CHAD will also be demonstrating Adept Technology's autonomous indoor vehicle (AIV) for automated SMIF pod delivery. The transporter is a safe autonomous indoor vehicle for delivering 200 mm, 150 mm, and reticle SMIF Pods within semiconductor fabs with no additional infrastructure required. The transporters moves nimbly within narrow aisles and operates in the same workspace as people without disruptions to daily operations during installation and maintenance. The solution improves yield by moving SMIFs from one machine area to another with reduced vibration and handling, thereby, reducing the number of particles generated by human activity and increasing operational efficiency by reapplying expensive labor from moving goods to higher-value tasks.
"We are very excited to partner with both Adept Technology and again with Beam Services this year, and to be able to demonstrate automated wafer delivery and handling of standard and non-standard wafers," says Scott Klimczak (President of CHAD Industries). "Working with technologies to both deliver product lots, and also to handle non-standard wafers, complements CHAD's ability to offer complete automated solutions to our customers."
CHAD Industries will be located in booth #6274 in the North Hall during the Semicon-West show. The show will run from July 10-12 in San Francisco at the Moscone Center.
