CoreFlow's V-Wheels Motion System performs fast, accurate substrate conveyance, offering minimal contact with the substrate surface. V-Wheel generates a vacuum in order to firmly grip the edges of the substrate and quickly convey it for processing, thus improving manufacturing yields. The system can be designed to convey substrates of any size, with thicknesses ranging from 0.2 mm to 0.5 mm.

The vacuum is applied to the exclusion zone of the substrate (10 mm from the substrate edge).

Key Features and Benefits:

  • High acceleration rate and transfer speeds of up to 1.5 m/sec – increasing production levels
  • Precision conveyance speeds the manufacturing process and reduces errors
  • Designed to handle glass substrates as thin as 0.2 mm
  • Conveys large substrate at any sizes
  • Integrates into existing production lines

The Vacuum Pre-Load (VPL) is a high-speed, high acceleration motion system technology that enables the conveyance and loading of any glass substrate regardless of its weight. The VPL motion system is most suitable as an interface between wheel conveyors and the air floating stage. The system's ability to switch drive force vacuum on and off minimizes glass deformation while the glass approaches the processing system, without any impact on the wheels.

Key Features and Benefits:

  • Simple structure with a minimal amount of surface contact
  • No up/down motion for on/off switching
  • Minimal glass deformation (~0.1mm)
  • High acceleration (~ 1m/sec², independent of glass weight)
  • High process speed (1.5m/sec), resulting in lower TACT
  • Minimal calibration requirements for minimal maintenance downtime
  • No edge-impact with wheels during glass approach
