Automatic Wet Bench Market – Introduction
- Automatic wet bench is used for cleaning and chemical bath in semiconductor manufacturing or high-technology manufacturing industries. Semiconductor materials such as silicon, germanium, or compounds such as gallium arsenide, which have an electrical conductivity between materials or conductors (metals) and nonconductors (such as ceramics) use fully automatic wet bench processes. Moreover, wet cleaning and etching operations are carried out by robotic arms. Etching primarily is a printmaking process where acid is used on an iron, copper, or zinc plate to create a design in intaglio (incised) in the metal, similar to figures carved into stones. Therefore, an automatic wet bench helps in wet cleaning and etching of semiconductors. The automatic wet bench process also includes chemical bathing technique, wherein thin films of photovoltaic metal are deposited on substances such as glass, plastic, and metal.
Increased usage of automatic wet benches in semiconductors, LED, bio-medical, solar heating
- The various cleaning processes used in automatic wet bench include cleaning of industrial parts, precision cleaning, vapor degreasers, passivation, and electro polishing, etc., which has boosted the automatic wet bench market. Increase in demand for LED products, such as high power LEDs, incandescent lamps, LED displays, and neon lamps, regularly demand high cleaning facilities, which further boosts the automatic wet bench market.
Use of latest technology to drive the automatic wet bench market
- Companies operating in the field of automatic wet benches are focused on the development of systems to meet the needs of customers with the latest and upgraded technology.
