HMx Series


The HMxSquare is designed to address the needs of customers in the semiconductor industry requiring high quality substrate processing for photomask applications as well as opto-electronics, OLED, and special semiconductor back-end (MEMS) applications. It offers develop, etch and cleaning functionalites.

The HMxSquare enables processing of small series or pilot production of special substrate. The system is loaded manually. All further process steps are automated. Thereby, HMxSquare combines stability and reliability of the proven performance of the original HMx series platform with today’s needs for electronic control functions, implementation of new cleaning techniques and environmental and safety requirements.
