Provides all the compatibility you need for automated wafer production.


Wafer Marking

WaferMark® series laser systems from ESI are the recognized industry leaders for wafer marking applications. We have WaferMark solutions for the two most important reasons why you mark wafers and die — traceability and product identification.

The world’s silicon suppliers, wafer reclaim, and semiconductor manufacturers consistently come to us for unsurpassed mark quality with our hardmark and patented SuperSoftMark® processes.

WAFER MARKING PLATFORMS


SC300 — Track wafers through the manufacturing process.

The SC300 uses laser technology to place permanent, highly-readable marks on wafers to allow for traceability through the semiconductor processes. The system provides the compatibility, cleanliness levels, mark quality, and reliability required to support high-volume 300 mm production.

  • Silicon

SigmaDSC — 100mm to 200mm Automated Wafer Marking System

The SigmaDSC is based on continual innovation in marking solutions for new substrate materials, highest quality marks and factory automation, using laser technology to place permanent, highly-readable marks on wafers to allow traceability of the wafers through each step in the semiconductor manufacturing process. The SigmaDSC system provides the compatibility, cleanliness levels, mark quality, and reliability required to support high-volume 100mm to 200mm production.

The hard mark process was developed for marking as cut wafers such that the marks will survive subsequent lapping and wafer thinning processes.

The key to the SigmaDSC’s uniform dot depth and roundness is ESI’s precise pulse to pulse stability combined with sufficient power.
