Chiara Nava, Elisa Sogne


The Sawatec SM-200/HP-200duo is a combination of a spin coater and a hot plate in one cabinet.

The Spin Module SM-200 allows for semi-automatic coating of thin layers, with automatic dispensing of different media and manual loading/unloading. The innovative RCCT system (Round-Closed-Chamber-Technology) effectively reduces air turbulence over the rotating substrate and improves the coating uniformity.


  • Up to 50 programmes with 24 segments each can be programmed
  • Process parameters: speed, acceleration, time
  • Rotational direction can be selected (CW, CCW)
  • RCCT system (Round-Closed-Chamber-Technology)
  • Dynamic dispense arm prepared for up to 4 media lines
  • Manual loading and unloading of the substrates
  • Substrate fixation via vacuum and safety interlock protection

The HP-200 hotplate was developed for precise soft and hard bake processes in lithography, MEMS and similar applications. The temperature range is designed for up to 250 °C by default. The set temperature and the temperature profile have narrow margins, meaning that a high coating quality can be achieved. It can be used for substrates with a diameter of up to 200 mm and thicknesses of 18 mm at maximum.


  • Temperature control with digital target and actual value display
  • Automatic temperature limit switch, no overheating
  • Heating ramp up possible with 20 program-steps
  • Proximity as well as loading pins, adaptable to different substrate sizes
  • Manual substrate fixation via vacuum
