Overhead Linear Automated Wet Bench Overview

The Overhead Linear Automated Wet Bench (OLA) is designed to accommodate a wide range of chemical processing for parts and materials that vary greatly in size and weight. With a customized OLA, FABS can expect more control while handling larger, heavier, and more awkward materials.

Compatible with any JST chemical or rinse process modules, the OLA supports semi-automated or automated operation with a variety of integrated wafer input and output requirements. The Overhead Linear wet bench is equipped with look-ahead scheduling software, a feature that allows for the processing of multiple lots with unique recipes at the same time. By improving throughput, multitasking capability saves time and floor space. In addition, the OLA can be modified to include an on-board chemical analyzer with integrated concentration control to monitor and reduce chemical usage.

This wet bench shares 3-axis automation with JST’s compact wet bench. Though both platforms offer the same high level of performance, only the OLA can accommodate the largest, heaviest parts. Product carriers in the OLA can be ergonomically accessed from the front or the side. Dry in and out processing is available utilizing JST’s Marangoni-style STG dryer. Customers also have the option of including a material transport cart or conveyor integration into their system.

As with all JST wet benches, the Overhead Linear wet bench is designed for ease of maintenance activities and comes with our standard 24/7 Technical Support.
