Process Control

Effective temperature control to maximize process yield

Process Control

Optimizing process yield is critical to increasing capacity and reducing costs, and the right thermal solution can be critical to process yield.  Your heating solutions must provide superior edge-to-edge uniformity on your processing surface, support deliver a high watt density and get you to your optimum process temperature faster than ever before.  That’s what Minco delivers:

  • Distribution of watt density to ensure consistent outputs
  • High reliability with over 200,000 hours before failure
  • Superior edge to edge uniformity on your processing surface (± 1°C)
  • High watt density of 100 W/in² (15.5W/cm²)

Application Examples

Recent  process control solutions from Minco include:

  • Medical equipment - point-of-care blood analyzers, imaging equipment
  • Semiconductor - front end tools and equipment, back end IC chip testing
  • Analytical instrumentation – chromatographs, particle detection

Understanding Your Requirements

Minco will work with you to develop a thermal cycling solution.  To help us understand your specific applications requirements, use the list below as a guideline of what we need to know:

  • Available power budget (wattage)
  • Start temperature
  • Control temperature
  • Ideal temperature ramp up time (seconds)
  • Material and configuration of the mounting surface
  • Available area/space where temperature sensing can occur
  • Broad thermal system needs – see below
