|With its amc series amcoss offers specialized, but at the same time highly flexible coating equipment for the coating of wafers and other substrates with light-sensitive photo resists and other high viscosity substances.|
Low procurement and operational costs
amcoss machines are equipped with high-quality standard components.
- Favourable purchasing prices → reduce investment costs
- Spare parts are cheaper and easier to obtain → maintenance costs and standing times are reduced which lower the machine hour rate.
- Procurement of spare parts is easier → avoids dependence on certain manufacturers with regard to sourcing.
The machines’ flexibility enables many different process solutions and enormously increases its efficiency, resulting in lower operational costs:
- Hard- and software can easily be modified subsequently
- Many different substrate types and sizes can be worked on during the same process
Low material costs
With our purpose-built coating system, employing special nozzles and servo control, consumption of the pricey photo resists has been considerably reduced and uniformity has gone up.
→ resist savings of up to 70%, resulting in considerably lower material costs
Entering exact absolute values for nozzle positioning avoids test runs.
→ saves resist, lowers material costs
→ reduces non-productive times
Improved production results reduce reject
→ lower reject and material costs
→ higher output
Low quality-related costs
Many amc product features are targeted at reaching optimal process cycles and as a consequence obtaining extraordinary high-quality end products. A clever software, centring “on-the-move”, resist and EBR-nozzle positioning by using absolute values in servo control and favourable placement of the machines’ electronics – if only to name the most important features – do contribute to absolute precision and reliability.
- Less measures for error prevention are necessary → reduces prevention costs
- Quality remains at a constant high and has to be controlled less frequently → reduces inspection costs
- Reject and faulty products are avoided → reducesnonconformity costs
Utmost-quality end products
Best uniformity of coating layers even with high-viscosity resists or high topographies, highest precision at Edge Bead Removal and continuous control and optimization of process sequences with the help of the scheduling function, guarantee that the substrates coated with amc spin coater equipment do show unchangingly high quality and so contribute to the quality of the actual end products. This does not only apply to standard wafers but many different substrate types and shapes.
→ considerably increases revenues
The whole process as well as its sequences are being constantly and precisely controlled and coordinated by the scheduling function of the amc software. The ultimate goal is that all substrates optimally pass through the machine considering maximum possible throughput at unvarying process time and quality.
→ Reduces reject and nonconformity costs
→ Lowers machine-hour rates
→ Increases profitability and revenues
The whole equipment is designed for easy handling and user support:
Software: it is almost self-explaining and easy to learn, settings are uncomplicated and quick to realize, no programming skills are necessary. Recipes can comfortably be written on a PC and afterwards transferred to the machine.
→ Very low training effort
→ Fewer technical personnel necessary
→ Reduces down times for machine adjustments
Machine housing: the operator is able to handle the machine easier and more comfortable from the outside.
→ Improves working conditions
→ Saves time
Serviceability: all machines´ electrical components can easily be access through the back of the equipment and are placed compactly at one spot of the machine.
→ Simplified operation shortens non-productive working times
→ Eliminates error sources
Setup of single sequences is easy or is carried out automatically
→ Improves work results
→ Shortens machine equipment
With a multitude of features processes can be simplified or even accelerated which saves time and consequently costs. For: time is money!
Replacement of standard components is easier, scheduling optimizes the coating process. Process sequences can be easily set and only a few test runs are necessary. Maintenance and conversion are uncomplicated.
→ Saves time in many aspects, consequently reduces costs
→ Revenues go up
