Akrion to ship tools to Asia

Jan. 12, 2006 — Akrion Inc. of Allentown, Pa., announced that it will ship two of its latest single wafer tool sets to an unnamed semiconductor manufacturer in Korea.

The company said its new Goldfinger Velocity platform provides the highest throughput in Akrion’s line and is designed for 300mm factory automation compliance. The platform also incorporates what Akrion calls “fast swap” dual end effectors that allow dual wafer picks with swap times of less than three seconds.
