Chad Industries will demonstrate world-class flexible automated wafer handling for 450mm wafers at SEMICON West 2014

Chad Industries, owned by Jabil Circuit, Inc., announced today that it will demonstrate flexible automated wafer handling for 450mm wafers during SEMICON West 2014 in San Francisco.

“We are excited to expand the WaferMate product family to include a robust and flexible handler for 450mm wafers.  This is an important part of the development roadmap for many of our OEM customers as they chart a path to support the launch of 450mm wafer production lines,” said Scott Klimczak, Senior Director of Engineering Services.  “It is extremely important to JABIL-CHAD that we move in-step with our OEM partners and provide them with reliable, cost effective, automation solutions that they need to support their expanding process tool requirements.”

Jabil engineers will be exhibiting their WaferMate450-2, a highly configurable, BOLTS-compatible robotic wafer-handling workcell that integrates high performance with cost competitiveness. The latest WaferWare software is a flexible software suite that allows wide-ranging application and unique user interface control.

The WaferMate450 workcell can act as a bridge tool, handling either 300mm or 450mm wafers using BOLTS compliant loadports.  The flexible operating system and tooling allow for wafer size change over without any tooling changes.  This allows customers to transition to 450mm production while retaining the ability to run 300mm wafers.
