Production furnace systems

Over the past 50 years, Tempress has built up an world wide installed base of over 1800 furnace systems. Most of these systems are dedicated for the Semiconductor industry. During this long history, Tempress was able to built up extensive hardware and process know-how. The TS 6 & TS 8 series medium & high volume production furnace systems are dedicated for 100 mm up to 200 mm wafers
