End-effector Pads

High purity, Perlast® and Kimura® materials are widely used in wafer handling applications as end-effector pads because they provide optimized friction to maintain wafer positional accuracy, and prevent particulation due to their wholly organic nature.

PPE are experts in providing elastomeric solutions and can help you optimize your designs using our materials expertise and advanced design tools, such as non-linear finite element analysis.

Custom designed wafer handling components ensure improved pad retention into mating hardware, simplified assembly and optimum friction to allow fast robotic handling.

The PPE range of materials includes elastomers with both low and high coefficients of friction, to allow tailoring of wafer retention force.  In addition, PPE offers dissipative end-effectors molded from unique elastomer materials to reduce electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage.
