Introduction to the job

Spotless reconditioning is the function in DUV scanners that maintains Wafer Table performance over its lifetime, and thereby also extends Wafer Table lifetime. Spotless consists of a mechatronic unit that extends a polishing stone from the metro frame onto the Wafer Table, and in conjunction with the Wafer Stage realizes the reconditioning action.
