Mobile robot system for quick transport and automatic handling of wafer cassettes without manual assistance. The HERO®FAB combines an established, clean and safe robot system, with an innovative vehicle (AGV).
As an autonomously navigating mobile robot, the SCOUT® is the ideal and flexible alternative to permanently installed transport systems. It does not require any guidance systems on the floor or on the ceiling.

Stocker Purge System
The retrofittable Stocker Purge System by Fabmatics purges FOUPs with an inert gas during interim storage. Thus, it reliably protects wafers between process steps from undesired chemical reactions due to humidity and evaporation.
The FlatStocker is an innovative system to store material carriers e.g. for open wafer cassettes and H200 boxes underneath the cleanroom ceiling. FlatStocker provides carrier ID information, in real time, to the customer’s MCS (Material Control System) using RFID and barcode technology.
Smart Load Port
The RFID-based Smart Load Port (SLP) is a station for the manual input and output of 300mm or 450mm FOUPs into or out of an automatic overhead transport system in a semiconductor fab. The integrated RFID technology ensures automatic lot identification during loading and unloading process.
