MACOR® Glass-Ceramic Bars -- 3" Length MACOR Bar
from San Jose Delta Associates, Inc.

Macor is a relatively easy material to machine using ordinary carbide drills, end mills, taps, etc. and doesn ’t require post machining firing. Macor-Machinable Glass Ceramic is also unique in that it can withstand 1000 °C, has low thermal conductivity and is a good electrical insulator. [See More]

Ceramic Lift Pins
from CoorsTek

Lift pins are used in assemblies to lift and move wafers through semiconductor processing positions. Since they are exposed to chamber or other processing conditions, they require robust thermal stability and corrosion resistance. Semiconductor Processing Components. CoorsTek is your partner for...

Semiconductor Wafer End Effectors
from CoorsTek

End effectors, also referred to as semiconductor handling "blades", are the robot's hand to handle and move semiconductor wafers between positions. So end effectors must be dimensionally precise and thermally stable, while having a smooth, abrasion-resistant surface to safely handle wafers without... [See More]
