SAN JOSE, Calif. — Electroglas, Inc. (Nasdaq:EGLS) today announced the release of its Motion Control for Advanced Technologies (MCAT). Optimized to reduce development costs and design cycle times for Value Added Resellers and Original Equipment Manufacturers, the Electroglas MCAT delivers the performance and reliability of a production semiconductor motion system as a turn-key platform for product development.
Developed from Electroglas’ production-proven EG6000 wafer prober, the MCAT provides VARs with the accuracy, reliability, and stability that are made possible by Electroglas’ intellectual property and motion control expertise. By providing rejection of environmental vibration, compensation for changing temperatures, and proprietary calibration techniques, an optimized base system enabling novel applications in micro-assembly, biotechnology, and alternative energy is now available to companies who would otherwise be required to spend scarce development dollars re-creating these technologies in-house.
Electroglas’ MCAT is currently the basis for a wide variety of applications including precision material deposition for biotechnology and electronic applications, assembly of MEMS devices, wafer-level alignment and bonding, and 3D measurement of sub-micron features.
