SEMICON WEST Booth #N5118
MARPOSS Announces Non-Contact In-Process Gauging for Transparent Materials at SemiCon West
Auburn Hills, Michigan, May 8, 2017 – In booth #N5118 at SemiCon West, Marposs, a world leader in measurement and process monitoring technologies, will be displaying its new Non-Contact Gauge (NCG) for controlling the thickness of different transparent parts, such as glass, plastic or silicon wafers in daily production. The NCG probe can withstand harsh manufacturing processes while being in direct contact with water and residual particles, with the following benefits:
• Assures a part production within the target tolerance
• Optimizes the cycle time
• Assures and maintains a constant and under control productivity
• Compensates for any production drift
• Production tracking
The NCG probe is based on interferometric technology, which causes the phenomenon of interference in order to extract information. In the Marposs gauging solution, light wave trains are emitted from a single source and reflected at the boundary of the object being measured where they combine to cause interference, identifying refractive changes and surface irregularities. The NCG probe enables the layer thickness of transparent materials to be calculated with nanometer precision.
The use of an infrared light source also enables the measurement of opaque materials with the NCG probe.
