Tempress launches VS Series vertical furnace platform

Nov 14, 2022 | News, company, solution

Today, Tempress launches the VS Series vertical furnace platform on the Semicon Europe show in Munich.  The VS series is an economical and small footprint solution for smaller batch (1 to 75 wafers) wafer processing. It offers a wide range of diffusion and deposition processes and allows for easy and cost-effective integration in R&D, pilot and full production environments.

“The VS Series is designed around the concept of smart flexibility”, says Pieter de Groot, managing director and CEO. “Flexibility in wafer size facilitates 150mm, 200mm or even 300mm wafer processing. Flexibility in batch size allows for economically processing small batches of R&D wafers while maintaining scalability towards high volume manufacturing with up to 75 process wafers in one batch on the same processing platform. And flexibility in wafer handling makes that the system can be configured with manual loading, automatic cassette-to-cassette loading or fully automatic loading including integration in an OHT system.”
