Strasbaugh has announced that it has received an order for two of its nFinity (Model 6DZ) prime wafer polishers. The two systems are expected to be shipped to the customer before the end of the year.
"The nFinity is the silicon industry's only fully-automated, cassette-to-cassette, wax-mount prime wafer polishing system. Customer demand for this polisher has made it one of Strasbaugh's leading products for high-volume silicon wafer manufacturing," said Mike Kirkpatrick, Strasbaugh's VP of Sales and Marketing.
The nFinity was designed specifically for prime wafer polishing to improve wafer-to-wafer consistency and to provide flatter wafers. Single wafer, wax-mount processing improves process results and increases yield.
