Adept SMIF Pod Transporter
Adept Technology, Inc.Posted 09/11/2012
The Adept SPC-4200 is a safe and autonomous indoor vehicle for delivering 150 mm, 200 mm, and reticle SMIF Pods within any semiconductor fab with no additional infrastructure or dedicated space required. This semiconductor automation solution moves nimbly within narrow aisles and crowded environments without disruptions to daily operations during installation and maintenance. Movements of SMIF pods are initiated from a call button located at an operator workstation, dispatched using a touch screen located on the vehicle, or generated by integrating Adept Enterprise Manager software with a facility’s production software system. The Adept SPC-4200 improves yield by moving SMIFs from one area to another, thereby, reducing the number of particles generated by human activity and increasing operational efficiency by reapplying expensive labor from moving goods to higher-value tasks.
