mechatronic wafer sorter (mWS)

Wafer sorting tools are critical to any wafer fabrication or material handling facility as they enable automated handling of wafers and allow fab operations both, to track each wafer throughout the manufacturing process, and to completely eliminate any risk of damage and particle contamination.They are essential for economic inventory and material flow management in the modern semiconductor industry. Our wafer sorters are designed to offer these capabilities for critical wafers as they are used for a variety of new technologies.

mechatronic wafer sorter (mWS)

Wafer sorting

The mechatronic systemtechnik gmbh´mWS series represents the latest generation of wafer sorters and sets new standards in safe handling of complex substrates (thin, ultra-thin or warped wafers). Consistent implementation of mechatronic systemtechnik gmbh´s modular design concept guarantees full compatibility with the widest variety of wafer carriers, mechatronic systemtechnik gmbh sorters mWS can be configured to be a flexible solution for transfer, sorting splitting and merging operations .

The mechatronic systemtechnik gmbh´mWS series of wafer sorting systems is capable to fully eliminate manual  wafer handling in todays semiconductor fabrication.

Configuration options

mWS for thin wafer

Right from the start, mechatronic systemtechnik gmbh has been supplying the industry with sorting tools for thin wafers. Today, we have a wide range of options integrated into our systems, and we continue to help manufacturers to sort thin wafers safely and reliably.

mWS film frame

Sorting of film frames has a different set of requirements than that for sorting wafers. mechatronic systemtechnik gmbh applies its technology and components for handling, sorting, and processing wafers to its film frame sorters — availing the best features in wafer sorters to film frames as well.

mWS deposition

Increasingly, deposition systems utilize process rings or carriers to optimize defect performance and to minimize efforts for deposition chamber cleaning. The issue with many deposition systems is that automated integrated handling is not always cost-effective.
In such situations, mechatronic systemtechnik gmbh employs its specialty components and integrates them into the wafer sorter. This enables wafers to be handled on the active side, only contacting the technical edge. Semiconductor companies rely on this approach especially when there are long process times or significant efforts that prevent integration into the process equipment.
