New generation of mask aligner: UV-KUB 3
First compact system with UV-LED light source
The mask aligner UV-KUB 3 is the first mask alignment system equipped with a UV-LED light source, that provide an unrivalled collimation and homogeneous exposure, on the international market.
Compact, easy to use and efficient, the mask alignment system UV-KUB 3 allows alignment up to 7" photolithography mask with substrates up to 6" in a cube volume of 48cm size.
Thanks to its removable photomask holder, the handling of fragile mask is considerably reduced: you can change the substrate as often as you want without touching the photomask.
Compatible with all standard photoresists: AZ, Shipley, SU8 and K-CL
A new approach of mask alignment
The new generation of mask aligner UV-KUB 3 is particularly suited for the production, through soft lithography, of microfluidic chip, integrated optical circuits, microelectronics, MEMS, semiconductor technology...
Fully secure thanks to its dust-proof hood, this equipment is the only solution on the market that democratizes precision photolithography without requiring a cleanroom type environment.
Resolution and alignment precision
Its design makes possible the realization of microstructures below 1 µm over the entire 4" or 6" work surface with an alignment precision of less than 1 µm.
Advantages of the UV-LED exposure technology
- illumination source devoid of undesirable thermal effects
- perfectly monochromatic
- lifetime of the LEDs > 10 000h: requires no specific maintenance
A compact mask alignment system
Beyond its size reduced to a minimum, its internal supporting structure dispenses the need for anti-vibration table, combined with low power consumption, the UV-KUB 3 is the ideal tool to control the operating costs.
A removable photomask holder
The photomask holder is removable: you can change the substrate as often as you want without touching the photomask. It allows to save a lot of time in production mode and thus, improve the efficiency of the automatic prealignment function.
User-friendly and efficient
With the UV-KUB 3 make precision mask alignments of less than 1 µm in few minutes with the ergonomic control joypad or with the help of the dynamic and intuitive tactile interface.
Low cost equipment
UV-KUB 3 is the less expensive high resolution mask aligner offered in the international market place.
Special field of application of the mask aligner 6 inches version
The mask aligner UV-KUB 3, 6 inches version, is perfectly well suited for:
- semiconductor technology
- microfluidics lab on a chip fabrication
New generation of UV-LED mask aligner
High quality collimated and homogeneous exposure
Thanks to a divergence angle less than 2°, you can reach resolutions down to micrometre scale without needing a vacuum mode.
It is thus possible to work on thick layers (several hundreds of microns) with a perfect rendering of the edges, with no roughness. This allows to reach 10x100 aspect ratio.
