Ferrofluidic Seals are used as component solutions where rotation is required in vacuum processes, high temperature applications, and other demanding or critical gas environments. The ferrofluidic seal locks out atmosphere and contaminants.
Inertia Dampers can be attached to step motors in order to help provide precision movement. Ferrofluid in the inertial damper provides
Ferrodrives integrate precision motor and drive technology with ferrofluidic seals and subsystem assemblies for integrated subsystem solutions for manufacturing systems.
Fabricated quartz is used to make system components that contact wafer surfaces or function in other process steps that demand high purity, non-reactive materials.
Thermoelectric modules and thermoelectric assemblies can be used to control temperature and remove heat for cooling wafers and for improved performance in integrated circuit testing processes.
