  9. Tips for Designing Clean Room Equipment

    Mechanical components intended to run in clean rooms for wafer fabrication must comply with uniform industry standards that dictate the number and size of particles they can generate.
    As the computer and electronics industries pack more circuits on semiconductor wafers, particle generation in the clean rooms where they are processed becomes more critical with each generation.  In many applications, mechanical positioning stages are a large contributor to contamination.  Suppliers are required to follow special design criteria that ensure a positioning stage’s cleanliness according to certain standards…

  10. Custom Rotary Positioning Stages from Bell Everman

    A guide to ServoBelt Rotary and Direct Drive Theta modification

    While off-the-shelf rotary stages will do the job in most cases, sometimes your application requirements call for a customized stage.  It may be something as simple as a special bolt hole pattern on the top of the stage.  Or you may need a way to secure a workpiece in the stage center opening.  Or you may need to squeeze a rotary positioning device into a tight space.

    Whatever your requirements, we can help.  We’ve introduced accessories and modular design features that make it easy to customize our standard Servo-Belt Rotary (SBR) and Direct Drive Theta (DDT) rotary stages. And in cases where our
