Standard Mechanical Inter Face (SMIF) pods and Front Opening Unified Pod (FOUP) carriers are based on an Isolation technology developed in
the 1980s at Hewlett-Packard. Today, this system is in used in many semiconductor wafer fabrication and cleanroom environments throughout the
world for both wafer handling and photomask reticle handling. H-Square pod openers provide an inexpensive method of gaining access to a
substrate storage pod carrier.  We have a complete line of both automated and manual stand alone tools.   Units are ideal for any application where
particulate contamination must be avoided.
AFO - AUTOMATIC FOUP POD OPENER
Automatic door opener provides clean and easy access to wafers in a SEMI standard
300mm FOUP. Interlocked load port turntable stage allows for 360 degree FOUP rotation
to give operators access to the open FOUP.
When open, the FOUP door is kept clean. Simple design for reliability and low
maintenance. Unique low profile design ideal for tabletop applications and FOUP wash
stations. Small footprint saves valuable cleanroom space.

FOMH - MANUAL 300mm FOUP POD OPENER
Manual ergonomic dual-pistol grip design allows for FOUP doors to be propped up when
door is removed. One pistol grip handle rotates, turning the FOUP door opening
mechanism. Simple designs for reliability and low maintenance.
