Morgan Advanced Materials announces advances in their range of high purity materials for semiconductor applications

Morgan’s CVD Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Pyrolytic Boron Nitride (PBN) materials are ideal for use in semiconductor applications

Morgan Advanced Materials announces advances in their range of materials grown using chemical vapor deposition (CVD) processes. Morgan's CVD Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Pyrolytic Boron Nitride (PBN) materials are ideal for use in semiconductor applications, including rapid thermal processing and plasma etch process chamber components, as well as metalorganic CVD tools for high-brightness white LED manufacturing using the indium gallium nitride process.

Morgan's improved CVD SiC growth capability enables the manufacture of 300+ millimeter diameter components with thicknesses of more than 10mm at production volumes for recently developed plasma etch applications. With access to world class ultrasonic machining capability, Morgan offers high tolerance CNC machining and precision hard grinding, as well as the patented Rmax process for producing focus CVD SiC ring shapes.

Morgan's high purity (99.999 percent+) SiC material has high thermal conductivity, is resistant to chemical erosion, and features minimal particulate generation, making it ideal for use in chlorine and fluorine plasma etch processes. The material is ideally suited for use in producing GDMs (gas distribution plates) where the material's erosion resistance can lead to long life and extended tool PM schedules. Ultrasonic drilling can provide holes with diameters as small as 0.5mm, ideal for custom etch applications.

High purity (99.99 percent+) PBN materials have a working temperature in excess of 1500°C, and feature high electrical resistivity and high dielectric strength. Extremely low out-gassing, non-wetting, and non-toxic, the PBN materials are inert to most acids, alkalis and organic solvents and have high thermal conductivity in the "a" direction. The advanced materials are a good choice for manufacturers of PBN coated graphite heaters and PBN effusion cell components.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
