Sub-systems supplier, Crossing Automation has moved into the carbon nano-tube (CNT) market with a design win for its ‘ExpressConnect’ vacuum wafer handling system by an unidentified CNT OEM. Crossing Automation said that its ExpressConnect system was selected because it offered a compact, low-cost solution that met the customer's requirements for its R&D and pilot production environment.

"This order marks our entry into yet another emerging market with significant growth potential and highlights the opportunities available for automation in semiconductor-related markets including CNTs, photovoltaics, LEDs and MEMS," said May Su, vice president of marketing for Crossing Automation. "Our ability to deliver a wide variety of cost-competitive automation building blocks that can be designed to accommodate very specific process requirements provides significant growth opportunities for us as a company."
