SpeedFam IPEC 472 - CMP Polisher

The IPEC Avanti 472 wafer polisher is a fully automated, precision tool for chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) polishing of semiconductor wafers. It can planarize wafers from 100 mm to 200 mm and is ideally suited for materials polishing applications that require repeatability with operational and processing flexibility The wafer polisher features automatic wafer handling and is capable of two platen, two-step polishing processing to maximize wafer throughput capability and quality.

The IPEC 472 uses a CMP polishing process that removes virtually any semiconductor material using polishing slurry to planarize the wafers to achieve flatness, uniformity and planarization on patterned/device wafers. The wafer polisher provides: fully automated precision polishing, processing flexibility and repeatable results.

Wafer Sizes: 2 inch, 3 inch, 100 mm, 125 mm, 150 mm and 200 mm
