FHR.Star product series

Process systems for deposition, removal and modification of thin layers on wafer-type substrates in small scale, pilot production or in research and development

  • Based on a flexible modular concept   
  • Various technological processes can be integrated   
  • Standard for processing semiconductor wafers

Cluster systems combining modules for processes like co-sputtering, co-evaporation, plasma PCVD, etching or heat treatment

Our cluster concepts

Maximum flexibility in configuring process chambers and general substrate handling make our FHR.Star vacuum processing systems the number-one choice for high-tech R & D applications. Moreover, this type of vacuum processing systems, called as a cluster concept, is considered the standard solution in microelectronics and wafer-type substrates. The choice is yours: We will often already have a proven module solution available for your desired vacuum process and substrate diameter. If not, we will work with you to develop a new configuration that meets your needs.
