ADVANCED THERMAL SOLUTIONSFOR SEMICONDUCTORPROCESSINGHigh-performance electricplaten heaters and related productsare available from Durex for allaspects of the semiconductorproduction process.CVDPhotolithographyStrippingPVDEtchingProbingWafer AnnealingPlasma AshingFlat Panel6Durex engineers are specialistsin designing and building thermalprocessing solutions for themachinery and equipment OEM’sin service to the semiconductorindustry, as well as contract fabshops, sub-assemblers and otherswho work in this high-precisionmarket. All our capabilitiesdescribed previously are utilizedin this market, in which Durex is anacknowledged leader.The products shown here havebeen produced for specific customerapplications, but all are availablein the same or modified forms foryour use.BAKE PLATENSUtilizing state-of-the-art heatertechnology, Durex manufacturesprecision bake platens specifically forprocessing 200mm and 300mm wafers.These platens are cast from purealuminum (99.7%) to insure maximumoperating temperatures of 450°C (842°F)with minimum risk of processcontamination. The casting process iscontrolled to eliminate any defects in themachined surface or casting body causedby porosity. A mineral-insulated heatingelement distributed throughout thecasting provides surface temperatureuniformity to ± 1% or better of the processoperating temperature. A hard-anodizedfinish provides an abrasion-resistantdielectric barrier on the working surface.BAKE/CHILL PLATENSDurex bake/chill platens haveessentially the same operatingspecifications as our bake platens,with the addition of a cooling function.A precision formed cooling tube is addedas an integral component to the heaterassembly in the body of the casting.This function can be used to rapidlycool the working surface of the platenor to act as a heat exchanger for liquidsand gases. A pressure test on thefinished part assures the integrityof the cooling tube after the castingprocess. The platen can also includean integral temperature sensor as partof the assembly.
PEDESTAL HEATERSThese pedestals comprise a bake or chillplaten with an aluminum "shaft" attachedto the underside of the platen by electronbeam welding. A helium leak test insuresa vacuum tight assembly. The surface ofthe pedestal is precision machined witha flatness of ± 0.0005" and includes liftpin holes and proximity pins to customerspecifications. Various terminationoptions are available to customizethe cooling tube exits for new orexisting applications.HOT CHUCKSHot chucks or "heated tools" deliver preciseheat to wafers during the manufacturingprocess. These platens are individuallycustomized with vacuum channels on theworking surface, as well as specific pin holelocations and other surface or backsidemounting holes. Manufactured from purealuminum (99.7%), these hot chucks have atemperature uniformity of better than ± 1%of the process temperature and a flatnesstolerance of 0.0005" across the entire surface.A precision lapped surface is standard, witha hardcoat anodized finish available.HIGH-TEMPERATURE PLATENSWhen temperatures exceed the 450°C(842°F) range provided by aluminumplaten heaters, Durex offers a uniquehigh-temperature platen heater to extendthe range available for a machined heater.The heater body is typically constructedof stainless steel, with other materialssuch as Nickel, Inconel®, Copper orBronze available, as needed. Theassembly is provided as a singlecomponent. A precise groove is machinedinto the heater body, as determined by theheat profile requirements of the surface.A mineral-insulated heating element ispress-fit into the groove to guaranteeintimate contact with the heater body,which optimizes heater life andtemperature uniformity on the workingsurface. In addition to high-temperatureplatens, these units can be manufacturedas pedestals and welded vacuum tight.STANDARD PEDESTAL HEATERSThe standard pedestal heatersmanufactured by Durex are designedto provide a quick solution for waferprocessing applications. These heatersare designed specifically for 200mm and300mm wafers. This standard designusually eliminates the need for costlytooling and mold design associated withnewly designed custom heaters. Ideal forR&D, rapid prototyping and emergencyrepair. Made from 356 aluminumstandard, cleaned and packaged tocleanroom specification, shipped readyto use. A variety of options can beincorporated into the final product withno additional tooling or engineering cost,including 170.1 aluminum (99.7% pure),hard-coat anodized surface, lift pin holes,vacuum channels, sapphire balls for waferproximity spacing and several electricaltermination styles.7
DUROCAST ® INDUSTRIALCAST-IN HEATERSDurex designs Durocast®cast-in heaters of aluminumand bronze for various heatingapplications, such as packaging,foodservice, hot melt systems,die heating, glue pots, heat sealing,heat treating, medical imaging, silkscreening, textile production andvacuum forming. We are the premiersupplier of cast heaters for plasticsprocessing.Our foundry’s productioncapabilities range from largequantities of simple platens tocomplex heated machine partswith unmatched temperatureuniformity. We accomplish thisvariety, precisely because all ourwork is done in-house, including:CAD/CAM3-D modelingCNC machiningCMM inspectionComputerized heat profilingTooling fabricationPermanent mold castingHeating element manufactureX-ray facilitiesTeflon® coating lineLife cycle testingUL/CSA recognitionLIQUID-COOLED BARRELSA heating element and an integralcooling tube are cast into theseheaters for uniform process control.Cooling tube sizes of 3/8" and 1/2"are available in stainless steel orIncoloy®. Dual cooling tubes arealso available to eliminate downtimeassociated with clogged cooling lines.Various electrical and cooling tubeterminations are offered by Durex.Strap-on and bolt-on designs arestandard. Cast materials canaccommodate temperatures to750°F (400°C) aluminum, 1100°F(595°C) bronze.AIR-COOLED BARRELSThese heater designs incorporatea variety of cast fin patterns tocirculate forced air across the bodyof the casting. Specific fin patternsare used to maximize the airflow forefficient cooling. Low profile finpatterns are used when restrictedspace or rapid cooling requirementsare present. Durex can also integratecast-in cooling tubes to augmentcooling capacity on these designs.8
AIR-COOLED BARRELS WITHSHROUD AND BLOWERDurex designs cast shrouds as integralcomponents on these air-cooled styles.The shroud fits tightly over the finpattern and features a throat sectionfor mounting a forced air blower to directairflow across the entire body of thecasting. This system optimizes the aircooling function of individual heaterzones through the dedicated operationof individual blowers.CAST-IN PLATENSUniversal style platens are the primarysource for heat in the foodservice,packaging, heat transfer, die heating,hot stamping and many other industries.Cast-in elements provide uniform heating,rapid delivery time and rugged continuousservice. Durex designs and casts suchheaters for large volume production,guaranteed to perform, heat after heat.Mounting options and heating surfacefeatures to fit any application. We workwith equipment builders, product designfirms, commercial/institutional and endusers alike to create the best solution foryour heating needs.CUSTOM APPLICATION HEATERSWhen you have the breadth ofexperience and skills of Durex, thereis literally no application for which wecannot design a thermal processingsolution.

Usuallyconstructed of a bronze alloy because ofthe high-temperature conditions of theirapplication, these heaters can also becast from aluminum, where lower wattdensities are acceptable. The mostcommon electrical termination for thistype of heater includes a vented towerprotecting the heating elements asthey exit the back of the casting, witha moisture-resistant terminal housing.HOT MELT ADHESIVE HEATERSHot melt adhesive delivery systemsrequire very complex cast-in heaterdesigns to simultaneously optimize meltflow and evenly distribute heat throughoutthe process. Durex engineers have theexperience to design the ideal unit for yourapplication. Our heaters are foundthroughout the automotive, packaging andother high-volume markets, where longservice life, uniform performance andcost-effectiveness are all demanded.9
