Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP)

Creating a nearly perfect, flat surface out of a silicon wafer is a necessity with integrated circuit manufacturing. When you are working in nanometers you need to ensure that your pneumatics are as precise as your process. By controlling the pressure placed on the polishing pads down to increments as small as 0.005% of full scale, Proportion-Air valves provide that trust while offering one of the highest resolutions in the industry.

How can you be sure your semiconductor wafer polishing machinery is performing properly? Closed loop technology can be used to both acquire data and diagnose problems. Whether it be adjusting friction or controlling the head pressure for the slurry, we can help.


Changes to the shape of molecules and other precise controls during the sputtering process require pressure control valves of the highest tolerances. When you can’t risk damaging your silicon wafers, turn to Proportion-Air high resolution pressure control valves for the ultimate in precision and reliability. Controlling the coverage of melted gold sputtered onto silicon wafers during semiconductor manufacturing is an integral task. By using high resolution pressure control valves you can control the density of the atomization.

With the soaring demand for components and the high cost of semiconductor manufacturing plants , you need to be confident your equipment is consistently producing integrated circuitry of the highest standards. Proportion-Air can offer the precision pneumatic control your application needs to deliver consistent, repeatable results, every time. Contact us today to learn more or get a custom quote.
