Newly designed S043/S053 Real L-motion Valve for Semi and LED.

June 08, 2012

VAT product engineers have launched their latest transfer valve specifically designed for SEMI applications handling 200mm, 300mmand 450mm wafers AND brightness bridge LED (HB-LED) applications.

VAT REAL L-MOTION valves are equipped to handle corrosive process environments (e.g. Etch and CVD), to offer customers long service intervals and low cost-of-ownership. This valve’s reliable actuator has integrated, mechanically triggered sequence control ensuring trouble free operation even in highly demanding applications with a fully protected bellows feedthrough.

VAT REAL L-MOTION valves allow for easy access gate exchange through the top cover and no adjustment is required after service. Uniform sealing compression is achieved due to Real L-motion movement and an adjustable closing force (depending on elastomer) important to achieving the highest seal life time and minimum particle generation. The valve is pneumatically operated and locked in closed and open position. VAT offers standard and customized valves used in vacuum production and research facilities all over the world. As applications become more complex, the requirements on sealing technologies become even more demanding. VAT products are refined and developed on an ongoing basis so as to support customers’ innovative projects.
