SEMICON 2016SCHAUMBURG, IL (June 2016) – ETEL is pleased to showcase new and next generation motion systems for the semiconductor industry at the upcoming SEMICON 2016 trade show in San Francisco, CA, from July 12-14 (Booth #1909). Also, a presentation on “Enabling Nanometer Stability” by ETEL will be given at various intervals in the booth.

During ETEL’s brief “Enabling Nanometer Stability” presentation, visitors will learn about a motion system stage where nanometer stability is accomplished. At HEIDENHAIN’s adjacent booth (#1809), visitors will learn about how a measuring technology using a linear encoder compares to and is better than a laser interferometer for nanometer stability.

ETEL’s booth will showcase a variety of motion systems, including the next generation RTMBi high performance indexing tables, the QuiET Active Isolation module, and the XYZ3TH Stacked System including the Vulcano.

1) RTMBi Indexing Table:
ETEL announces the next generation of high performance indexing tables: the RTMBi. By combining ETEL’s high efficiency torque motors with HEIDENHAIN’s high resolution encoders in a very compact package, the RTMBi delivers industry-leading benefits.

2) QuiET Active Isolation System:
At SEMICON, ETEL will showcase QuiET, a propriety active isolation module for ETEL’s motion systems. QuiET is a 6 Degrees of Freedom (DOF) module cancelling both stage-born and ground-born vibrations enabling higher throughput and process reliability.

3) XYZ3TH Stacked System, including the Vulcano:
ETEL is pleased to introduce the new XYZ3TH Stacked System. The VULCANO XY part of it is a three-piece-design stacked system resulting in a cost-engineered solution providing high dynamics, great bidirectional repeatability, and outstanding position stability. It was born as a semiconductor front-end solution but can also serve many other applications
