SortMax300 HWS

Gain competitive advantage with Genmark's SortMax300 HWS™ wafer sorter-packing solution, designed to automatically sort, pack, and unpack wafers up to 300mm without damage and with absolute traceability.

Wafers are quickly sorted and transferred between FOUP/FOSB cassettes and horizontal wafer shippers (“coin stackers"), for shipment to manufacturing facilities.

SortMax300 HWS™ offers improved yields results by eliminating the risk of wafer scratches as well as reduced wafer costs through the reduction of packing costs and wafer losses.

Genmark's SortMax300 HWS™ wafer sorter-packing solution is reliable, fast and cost-effective solution to meet fab’s automated wafer storage and shipment needs.

Genmark’s highly sophisticated ECS300 Equipment Control Software is offered as a standard feature.
