Series X

The multipurpose Thermal Processing Platform

One Furnace – multiple processes.

The horizontal furnace TS series V is optimized for flexibility, multiple processes and cleanroom space. With its modular design the TS series V is available with up to four process chambers that can independently and simultaneously run a multitude of processes. The TS series V is future proof: process capabilities can be improved and extended over time with its upgradeable and configurable soft- and hardware and the wafer handling can be fully automated.

Optimized cleanroom footprint.

  • Wafer size capability​ up to 300 mm​
  • Stack flexibility ​ 1 to 4 tubes​
  • Flat zones​ up to 1250 mm​

Higher process stability and yield.

  • Tempress proprietary and well proven Digital Temperature Controller (DTC) for temperatures upto 1350 degrees Celsius delivers unprecedented temperature stability over long time.
  • Each tube has an individual DTC for optimum temperature control.

Long economic lifetime, ready for the future.

  • Modular design
  • Reliable industrial​ components

  • ​Upgradable and​ configurable hard- and ​software

  • ​Self-diagnostics​ capabilities​

High uptime and process availability.

  • Shorter repair times.
  • Use of high quality, industrial components
  • Support in process optimization
  • Easy acces to Tempress expert knowledge

Easy operation and high security.

New advanced NTM furnace controller and software delivers:

  • Easy formulation and adaptation of process recipes and distribution over different furnaces without advanced programming skills
  • Data logging allowing improved feedback loops and improved process quality and yield
  • New touch screen user interface intuitive and easy to use for operators and process technologists Improved user management allowing easy operation, protection against flaws and improved security
  • One UI (User Interface) to control the entire furnace, process, recipe editing, control and monitor motions, boat movements, logging and analyses process variables and overview of the machine user interface

Easy to integrate.
