The Apollo system product line sets new benchmarks in productivity and cost effectiveness. Designed for high volume wafer-based production, our Semi-S2 certified Apollo systems integrate the high productivity of SMFD-ALD with a revolutionary simple substrate handling. The result is a flexible, modular system that can be easily configured to our customers needs.
APOLLO provides fully automatic cassette-to-cassette ALD processes with high throughput performance at the lowest cost of ownership. APOLLO leads in every aspect of ALD productivity, performance, cost, and sets a new standard for efficiency while reducing environmental impact. With its ‘zero-waste’ processing, APOLLO lowers factory power consumption and occupies a smaller footprint on the clean-room floor.

Design: APOLLO uses our millisecond response ALD manifold that integrates 10 of our patented Fast Pneumatic Valves (FPV) to deliver over 100 million trouble-free cycles of composite and nanolaminate ALD films. This manifold is the only ALD manifold that can switch composition every cycle without any throughput penalty. Field proven since 2005, our valves set records for speed, reliability, lifetime and safety, while performing at temperatures as high as 220°C. Forge Nano’s ALD valves are the only doubly contained, spill-free UHP valves on the market.
