    • navigates autonomously
    • does not require any kind of guidance system neither on the floor nor on the ceiling
    • can even be used safely in areas where people and machines work closely together
    • is cleanroom suitable up to ISO class 3 / US FED class1
    • operates up to 18 hours per day and will recharge within 5 hours
    • SCOUT is capable of transporting various materials and products between any point in the fab, taking measurements, providing tools and auxiliaries. Various attachments like mechanical manipulators and transportation trays enable the SCOUT to be adjusted to different conditions according to the desired use.

  • FlatStocker for Zero Footprint Storage
    FlatStocker by Fabmatics is an innovative system to store wafer cassettes, boxes and other material carriers underneath the cleanroom ceiling....

  • Without using costly clean room floor space, this innovative stocker system hangs from the ceiling and can be designed to handle variety of cassette types (HA200-boxes, open cassettes, SMIF Pods, FOUPs). The FlatStocker provides carrier ID information, in real time, to the customer’s MCS (Material Control System) using RFID or barcode technology. Connection to a transportation system combined with vertical lifts, enables the system to quickly store or retrieve lots. The simple design is based on proven industrial components. This enables great flexibility in laying out the most effective configurations to meet the customer’s storage requirements and available space.

  • FOUP Purge System
    The retrofittable System avoids oxidation and other chemical reactions on the wafer surface by purging the FOUP with an inert gas (e.g. N2) during interim storage. It can be easily retrofitted to existing storage modules (e.g. Zero Footprint Storage)....

  • The retrofittable FOUP Purge System by Fabmatics purges FOUPs with an inert gas during interim storage. Thus, it reliably protects wafers between process steps from undesired chemical reactions due to humidity and evaporation.


    • May be easily retrofitted with existing systems for FOUP storage (e.g. Zero Footprint Storage, Stocker) without having to change the fab structure during regular fab operations
    • Independent purge functionality for each nest, no gas spill / waste
    • Constant gas flow during the entire storage period
    • Every purge nest is individually monitored and controlled


    • Avoids AMC (Airborne Molecular Contamination) and other chemical reactions
    • Allows extended queue time between process steps
    • Improves overall process yield
