COREFLOW INTRODUCES ON-LINE FLOW RATE CALCULATOR

for its Pressure-Atmospheric (PA) Handling Solutions.

CoreFlow HQ, March 25, 2019 – CoreFlow Ltd., a leading solutions provider of aeromechanical, advanced handling and conveying systems, announced the availability of a Flow Rate Calculator for PA bars on the company’s web site, www.coreflow.com

The calculator, which allows PA system users to accurately gauge air pressure supply requirements, supports customer’s efforts to improve their system efficiency and reduce energy expenses.  To use the calculator, the user simply enters a series of measurements, including system size, substrate thickness, and air gap requirements.  The calculator responds with highly accurate Mass Flow Rate (MFR) and input powering requirements. 

CoreFlow's customers are constantly striving to improve the efficiency of their manufacturing operations, and are highly focused on reducing energy costs. 

The online calculator allows them to quickly and easily perform MFR computations.  The resulting information can then be used to optimize system performance, applying exactly the power level needed to achieve the required air gap. 

CoreFlow’s online tool provides precise calculations for both “Flat” (horizontal) and “80-degree” PA systems.

COREFLOW INTRODUCES ITS SELECTIVE VACUUM SOLUTION

for Semiconductor Robot End-Effectors, Wafer Chucks and other applications.

  

CoreFlow's HQ, Feb 18, 2019 – CoreFlow Ltd., a leading solutions provider of non-contact, advanced handling and conveying systems, is now offering selective vacuum solutions that address the challenges of handling warped wafers. Utilizing its SmartNozzle® technology, CoreFlow’s handling mechanism acquires the wafer even when only a fraction of the vacuum array is covered. This is in contrast to competing technologies, in which a standard vacuum chuck would lose its gripping force and drop the wafer. In order for the vacuum force to acquire a wafer when some of the vacuum ports are uncovered, a selective vacuum is required. Use of permanent flow restrictors chokes the flow, ensuring that all vacuum ports are active – whether or not they are covered. 

When comparing the CoreFlow end-effector that utilizes selective vacuum to a conventional product, it was demonstrated that when losing contact in two out of four vacuum pads, the CoreFlow end-effector maintains a vacuum level of slightly over -700 mbar while the standard product generates a level of -50 mbar only! 

CoreFlow’s selective vacuum pads retain the wafer at a force that is 14 times more powerful than the force generated by the standard vacuum.

COREFLOW PRESENTED IN THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCES ON ADVANCES IN FLUID MECHANICS

July 10-12 2018, in Ljubljana Slovenia

 

Dr. Boaz Nishri, CoreFlow CTO, and Mr. Ronen Lautman, CoreFlow System Engineer, presented at the 12th International Conference on Advances in Fluid Mechanics, (AFM 2018), which was organized by the Wessex Institute and was held this year in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Dr. Nishri presented CoreFlow's exclusive development, "1D Analytic Model for PV Aeromechanical Systems”. The 1D Analytic Model is based on the analogy between airflow and electric current and was compared in this work with a 3D CFD model. The results prove minor differences only (~3%) between the 1D analytic model and the full CFD analysis while benefitting from very fast performance calculations and low cost of ownership.

Mr. Lautman presented "The Effect of Nozzles Characteristics on PV Aeromechanical Systems". It was found that the nozzles' characteristics play a major role in determining PV performance. Vacuum (V) nozzles should be designed for viscous-dominant performance, while pressure (P) nozzles should be designed for inertial-dominant performance.

CoreFlow's R&D team, led by Dr. Nishri, develops leading-edge aeromechanical technologies and processes that address the growing challenges faced by the FPD and Semiconductors industries, and provide CoreFlow customers with efficient, innovative solutions.

CoreFlow Develops a non-contact chuck for Semiconductor Silicon Wafers

 

CoreFlow HQ, ISRAEL, 26 Feb 2018 -- CoreFlow Ltd., a leading solutions provider of non-contact advanced handling and conveying systems, has recently released a non-contact semiconductor chuck for silicon wafers processing.

The chuck was developed to address the growing industry demand for elimination of wafer back side contamination (particles free). Utilizing CoreFlow's unique SmartNozzlesTM technology, the silicon wafer floats over the chuck surface at a precise height while it is pneumatically clamped, eliminating back side contamination and friction wear.

The non-contact chuck was successfully tested at a leading semiconductor customer and can be used in various applications such as inspection, metrology, overlay, wafer thinning and more.

CoreFlow's customer stated "using CoreFlow's non-contact chuck in our process significantly reduces backside particles count and hence enhancing our process yield"

“By offering a non-contact platform to the semiconductor industry, Coreflow enables next generation technology," said Eric Joely, Coreflow CEO "As semiconductors become smaller, faster and more efficient, device size shrinks and the need for clean process intensifies. This calls for an “out of the box” solution, a call that Coreflow has answered”.

CoreFlow Installed a Large Air-Floating Stage for Experimental Testing of Spacecraft Attitude and Orbit Control at Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany

 

CoreFlow HQ, ISRAEL, Nov. 29, 2017 -- CoreFlow Ltd., a leading solutions provider of non-contact advanced handling and conveying systems, recently installed a large air-floating stage at the Institute of Space Systems (IRAS) at Technical University of Braunschweig.

The air-floating stage is aimed to enable the experimental satellites to simulate a weightless environment by floating them on air cushions. Unlike most of existing air-floating stages where an experimental satellite requires a separate supply of compressed gas to form the air cushions for themselves, the CoreFlow's air-floating stage at IRAS generates itself air cushions to support the test facilities. Thus long-term simulations are possible for the experimental testing of spacecraft attitude and orbit control.

The installed stage area size is 4 x 7 meters and can float experimental satellite mockups at a minimum floating height of 50 microns above the surface, with a maximum weight of 30Kg, allowing experimental satellite mockups to experience rotational and translational degrees of freedom. 

"CoreFlow air floating stage allows us to successfully run experimental satellites to experience rotational and translational freedom." said Prof. Enrico Stoll, Head of IRAS, "Orbital debris is a growing concern in spaceflight. Thanks to the CoreFlow system we are coming closer to our goal of developing new technologies for active debris removal"
