Zero Footprint Storage
Seeking a storage solution that reduces the footprint in your fab? Our Zero Footprint Storage (ZFS) systems are static storage and buffer bins that are typically hung from the cleanroom ceiling and/or the overhead transport (OHT) tracks. Providing storage for WIP carriers and reticle pods, these systems are engineered to deliver substantial cleanroom footprint savings.
These ZFS solutions have gained popularity in recent years, as more and more of our clients aim to achieve nearly “stockerless” systems. With a zero footprint storage solution, our clients discover that they have valuable footprint available for process and manufacturing tools. Plus, storage is available in these high-density storage designs for both under-track and side-track (both sides).
