- General use: Vacuum wands are utilized to pick up and transport wafers from one location to another without adding particles.
- Sorting: For manual wafer sorting applications, vacuum wands allow operators to move wafers safely and precisely within a parent lot. They can also be used to combine lots together, add test wafers, and replace any damaged wafers, as necessary.
- Inspection - Operators can use vacuum wands to pull out a wafer from a parent lot and inspect it under specialized lighting to look for defects. This ensures that the process has been successful and that the wafer meets the required specifications
- Rescue – Vacuum wands can be used to remove stranded substrates from cassettes, pods, and process tools when automation underperforms.
