Advancing Semiconductor Automation.
700 process steps. Three months from blank wafer to completed chips. 114 billion transistors in a single system-on-a-chip microprocessor. Unprecedented growth in demand. Virtually no other manufacturing process demands the nanoscale accuracy, ultra-precise control and copy-exact technology required to create the chips that are the foundation of our digital world.
Solving these challenges to create each new generation of chips calls for automation technology with outstanding quality and tool-proven performance. With the industry’s most complete factory automation solutions, Bosch Rexroth has the trusted technology, deep industry expertise, and collaborative relationships to expand your resources and deliver the critical technical performance semiconductor manufacturing demands.
In applications ranging from wafer handling and transport through process chambers to testing and inspection, our efficient pre-engineered assemblies and custom-designed automation solutions give tool builders and fabs the performance they need: ultra-precise movement, nanoscale control and long-lasting operation to sustain the highest levels of production quality and productivity.
Nanoscale-accuracy and virtually vibration-free movement are key precision requirements for semiconductor tools. Our revolutionary ctrlX AUTOMATION platform and our expanding compact servo drive family provide the powerful, proven motion control technology that drives our automation solutions with:
Semiconductor tool gantry handling systems need efficiency, stability and ease of integration. Our Smart MechatroniX systems combine proven linear motion components with smart, easy-to-program controls to deliver torsion-free positioning with high accuracy through:
Complete mechatronics solutions with all the technology from one supplier: That’s the unique value Bosch Rexroth brings to custom mechatronics subassemblies. Through smart, well-engineered integration of linear components and electronic motors, controls and sensors, you reduce your in-house engineering efforts because we supply:
Moving wafers in process from one chamber or process tool to the next demands flawless, vibration-free transport. Bosch Rexroth is ready to meet multiple material movement challenges with advanced linear motor platforms such as ACTIVE Mover and the Flexible Transport System. Our total transport and conveyor offering features:
Even the slightest vibration when wafers are in motion can harm chip quality. By constantly updating our range of innovative linear axes, we refine the efficiency and stability of all our linear motion products and modules. As an industry leader and innovator for over 30 years, we’ve constantly enhanced our portfolio to feature:
