A major player in the semi-conductor industry required 2 cleanroom compatible transport and loading jigs to carry two different optical products through the cleanroom, into and out of measurement machines and on and off an assembly station via a rail system. The rails are the universal machine interface with dedicated rail height and distance for each product of the customer.
The final solution consists of a pallet for each product, the rail system, the dedicated wheel package, a drive and brake system and the controlling and steering components. These systems will be loaded by rails and cranes as well as being picked up by a robotic transport vehicle.
For these systems multiple concepts have been developed focusing on the different functions:
After concept selection, the systems have been engineered up to final production drawings and documentation. This was followed by final production, validation and installation and commission at customer side.
