DIXI COOL PLUS concept Polytool | DIXI Polytool

DIXI Polytool presents its innovative DIXI COOL PLUS concept for micro and high-performance milling. Partly due to the unique cooling ring, our precision is optimally cooled. With our COOL PLUS concept we accelerate the coolant with high precision and cool the cutting edges. This reduces the cutting forces on the tool by up to 50% which gives a significant difference in tool life. The COOL PLUS concept consists of an extensive range of standard cutters. We can also offer special offers based on the COOL PLUS concept.

Planarity detection of wafers | Attocube Systems AG 

During lithography and metrology processes the wafer is exposed to extreme environments, fast motions and multi-dimensional forces. These could cause elastic or plastic deformations. E.g. the movement of wafer stages working with magnetic levitation deforms the flat surface of the plate. To reduce these deformations a nanoprecise and contactless detection is required. Attocube´s laser interferometer IDS3010 is capable of measuring directly on the wafer to capture such deformations in nanometer range. The miniaturized sensor heads allow for various measurement points on one wafer to detect multi-dimensional deformations and also work under extreme environments such as vacuum or clean room conditions.

Dynamic motion control of wager stages | Attocube Systems AG

Wafer stages need to perform ever larger and faster movements to increase throughput of the production process. Furthermore, single digit nanometer precision is required to ensure dense circuit patterns. These requirements can only be achieved by utilizing ultra-precise sensors to control the wafer stage’s movements. Attocube´s laser interferometer IDS3010 enables metrology tools to achieve the required precision at nanometer range over long distances up to 5 meters with a target velocity of up to 2 m/s. The miniaturized sensor heads can be integrated directly into the wafer stage. This reduces the moving mass significantly compared to stage attached mirrors.

Beam aperture and filter positioning | Attocube Systems AG

In lithography and metrology processes, the precise alignment and filtering of the beam is directly related to the wafer´s quality. The laser beam produces photons that are collected via a gathering mirror and directed via different apertures to hit, e.g. the reflection mask. Attocube nanopositioners are designed to operate with low particle generation at high temperatures and vacuum with nanometer precision. This makes them the perfect choice for reliable aperture control under extreme conditions.

Laser beam adjustment in metrology and inspection tools | Attocube Systems AG

During the inspection process in wafer production the light or laser beam path has to be precisely and continuously adjusted to perform control over the wafer surface in order to detect even smallest imperfections and to provide detailed information on the wafer´s quality. Attocube’s nanopositioners are designed for the use in ultra-precise motion applications in extreme conditions and offer superior accuracy, repeatability and resolution. This makes them the perfect components for continuous and stable beam control within the metrology process.

Ultra precise position tracking in photolithography | Attocube Systems AG

During the photolithography process circuit patters of few nanometers in size are transferred from the photomask onto the semiconductor wafer. The ultraprecise position tracking and alignment of measurement frame, optics and wafer stage is key condition to ensure highest quality throughout the process. Attocube´s laser interferometer IDS3010 with vacuum and high temperature compatible sensor heads can be easily integrated into lithography machines, ensuring the best alignment among the key components with nanometer accuracy, delivering high speed data with up to 10 MHz bandwidth.

The right mix of man and machine in assembly processes | Tegema B.V. an Etteplan company | Stand 433

Tegema demonstrates an assembly process of a photonic dummy component. The setup shows how the human can be supported by automatization. Through the use of a cobot the operator is unburdened of repetitive actions that require a high level of accuracy. Partly automating processes, as is showed here, is typically useful in the high-mix low-volume production, as full automation is financially unrewarding due to small batches and production amounts, but automation does aid in throughput optimization and the reduction of errors. The setup offers the operator further support through the use of tooling and technique in the line. For example by the use of the P2L-unit, the electrical screwdriver and the assembly mold.
