Increase Cooling Efficiency of Linear Stages While Reducing Part Count

The Benefits of Metal Additive Manufacturing

  • Semiconductor Cooler with Fluid with Cross Section
  • Design Flexibility

    Because additive manufacturing gives semiconductor equipment and thermal management engineers unprecedented design flexibility, they are able to unlock new levels of complexity for integrated cooling channels and reduce part counts and assemblies, thus maximizing the efficiency of linear stages cooling jackets and increasing their reliability for higher performance and accuracy. 

  • Semiconductor Linear Stage Cooling Clean Room Environments
  • High Quality and Accuracy for Clean Room Environments

    High material quality and part accuracy produced in an inert atmosphere with a steady, ultra-low oxygen level—coupled with proprietary processes for optimal particle cleanliness—result in metal parts that meet clean room requirements and are fit for use in semiconductor equipment. Our metal additive manufacturing solutions enable wall thicknesses as low as 0.6 mm, minimizing the thermal resistance between the cooling channels and the controlled surface.

  • Performance and Productivity

    Better thermal management and increased component reliability enable speed and uptime increases in semiconductor manufacturing equipment, ultimately leading to increased manufacturing yield with more wafers processed and higher overall lifecycle value.

Your Path to More Efficient Linear Stages Coolers

  • Semiconductor Cooler with Fluid

    Improve Cooling Efficiency

    Due to high acceleration, linear stages can generate and maintain significant thermal loads. Efficient thermal management of linear stages allows for longer service life and consistent positioning accuracy, positively impacting overall equipment throughput.

    Increased Components Reliability

    By creating monolithic cooling jackets, you are eliminating sources of leakage at weld lines. Superior cooling efficiency can be gained in less space, with no assembly required, translating to longer intervals between service and maximum tool uptime.
