New Nanopositioning and Ultra-Precision Motion Control Systems for Semiconductor Test and Manufacturing featuring at 2023 Semicon West

Live demonstrations on multi-axis air bearing stages, wafer stages, laser beam steering systems, and sub-nanometer precision piezo stages backed by decades of PI’s nanopositioning experience.

San Francisco, CA - PI's booth #5678 at the 2023 Semicon West will feature a new high precision multi-axis wafer stage along with air bearing stages for wafer stealth dicing, precision direct-drive gantry stages, and high speed beam steering systems for laser beam delivery. For applications such as surface metrology, fast focus stages are available with a choice of piezo and voice coil motors.

PI's high precision solutions and motion systems find applications in nano-lithography, laser optics, mask inspection, CD measurement, wafer inspection and metrology, and wafer dicing. PI focuses on global growth markets such as Semiconductor Manufacturing, Silicon Photonics, Quantum Computing, Industrial Automation, High Resolution Microscopy, and Life Sciences.

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

Our retention knobs are manufactured above international standards or to machine builder specifications. Retention knobs are manufactured utilizing AMS-6274/AISI-8620 alloy steel drawn in the United States. Threads are single-pointed on our lathes while manufacturing all other retention knob features to ensure high concentricity. Our process ensures that our threads are balanced (lead in/lead out at 180 degrees.) Each retention knob is carburized (hardened) to 58-62HRC, and case depth is .020-.030. Core hardness 40HRC. Each retention knob is coated utilizing a hot black oxide coating to military specifications. Our retention knobs are 100% covered in black oxide to prevent rust. All retention knob surfaces (not just mating surfaces) have a precision finish of 32 RMA micro or better: ISO grade 6N. Each retention knob is magnetic particle tested and tested at 2.5 times the pulling force of the drawbar. Certifications are maintained for each step in the manufacturing process for traceability.
