Automated Material Handling

The Eco-Snow® system incorporates automated or robotic mechanisms within a Class 1, clean, dry chamber to deliver repeatable precision cleaning.

An example is the WaferClean 2100. This computer-controlled robotic system features a teach-and-learn program, which allows the user to set the desired CO2 scan pattern — circle, rectangle or point — simply by selecting options from a menu, then positioning the robot at the desired end points using a teach pendant. Up to 10,000 cleaning "recipes" can be stored in memory providing the capability to clean a wide variety of parts. This sophisticated technology provides total accessibility to critical areas on even the most intricate components.

Parts are loaded into and unloaded from the system through an integral "load lock" to ensure the integrity of the environment.
