AMC 3000

PhotonExport Official Representative in Equipment brands from Spain and Portugal, we have the best machines:  AMC 3000

the AMC 3000, the perfect complement to our series of fully automatic single wafer processing tools. Designed with substrate sizes ranging from 150 mm to 300 mm (or 7″ x 7″ to 9″ x 9″), this spinner offers highly flexible applications in coating, lift-off, developing, cleaning, vapor priming, and heating of wafers and masks. With a focus on our customers’ needs, each tool can be optimized for either flexible single processes or high throughput.

The AMC 3000 features the option of FOUP loading via robot or rail system in the cleanroom or plant, ensuring seamless integration into your workflow. Additionally, it offers the integration of an optional 300 mm SECS/GEM interface for enhanced communication capabilities.
