Nanotronics Automation wafer loaders are designed for customers who want a simple, reliable, easy to maintain and easy to program loader. Consider the following:
Built with Modular Components We wanted our loaders to be very easy to repair. So we designed the main components to be easily removable. For instance if the robotic mechanism needs replacement/repair you remove 4 screws and unplug 3 small cables to take it out. Same thing goes for the Cassette elevator, remove 4 screws, unplug and remove/replace. You will not find a simpler loader to maintain.
Reliability Designed to move 1 million or more wafers. All mechanical motions are designed with recirculating ball bearing movements with hardened shafting/raceways and roller bearings. We test load/unload any where from 3,000 to 6,000 wafers on each loader during our testing procedures.
Software Our standard Loader Software runs on a PC with the XP operating system, which we supply with each Loader. It can be a laptop or a desktop depending on customer choice. Save money by using your own PC and we will supply the software on disc. For customers who want to write your own software we can supply an OCX example. Help with custom software and integration is available.
