Vertical sorter (CVS) For SPIN DRYER Process

The CVS insures the transfer of a complete batch of wafers from a transport carrier into a process carrier.
Thanks to its wafer scanning, Comet CVS detects empty slots and adds dummies when necessary.
With the TAG reader, Comet CVS keeps in memory all carrier ID loaded and recognizes them to secure unloading.
Integrated Infrared Heat Sensor Simple to use and easy to maintain.
One button system operation.
LCD display indicating all cycle steps.
Set-up machine directly from the keyboard.
Wafer Size 6″ or 8″ transfer
Batch transfer
Single transfer
Automatic dummies insertion
