The EasyTube® 6000 series multi-tube horizontal furnace systems are automatically controlled research units for batch processing of up to 50 wafers per run per tube (process dependent), in up to four separately configured process tubes.
Our ET6000 series systems are used for complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS), photovoltaics (PV), micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS), and nano electro mechanical systems (NEMS) research to perform oxidation, annealing, diffusion, silicon oxide, and nitride deposition processes.
The systems are designed to meet today’s safety standards for handling pyrophoric, corrosive, flammable, and toxic gases such as hydrogen, silane, germane, diborane, hydrogen chloride, and metal organic precursors.
Standard left-hand as shown, optional right-hand, bulkhead, or ballroom.
Atmospheric or Low Pressure
Process tubes are individually configured for atmospheric and/ or low pressure operation.
Cantilevered Loading System
Automatic cantilevered substrate loading mechanism with horizontal HEPA filtered laminar flow to minimize particle contamination during loading.
Cascade Temperature Control
Provides an accurate internal temperature profile with the responsiveness of external (furnace) temperature control. Each furnace is multi-zone for control of thermal profiles.
Innovative Modular Platform
Enables a wide range of options that can be configured to meet your specific processing requirements. Most system options are also available as upgrades after install.
