Rear Linear Automated Wet Bench Overview

The Rear Linear Automated Wet Bench (RLA) supports automated, semi-automated, or multitasking operations with a variety of integrated wafer input and output requirements. This chemical wet bench allows for accurate process control, high throughput, and production flexibility by providing multiple lot processing simultaneously with various processing parameters.

The RLA is configured with front-mounted reservoirs, pumps, filters, and plumbing in the dual containment plenum. This system is designed with ergonomic front or side load/unload access for product cassettes. With both SMIF and FOUP load port options, the bench ensures that wafers are transferred in a safe and well-controlled manner.

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