High Volume Nanoimprint Lithography Manufacturing System for Patterned Media
NuTera™ HD7000 represents the industry’s first nanoimprint lithography system specifically designed for patterned media pilot- and volume-production applications and enables sub-20nm lithography at production speeds, providing the low cost of ownership (CoO) that HDD manufacturers require to economically extend their areal density roadmaps to well beyond one terabyte per square inch. Custom designed from the ground up for high volume, high density HDD patterned media manufacturing, the NuTera HD7000 platform achieves breakthrough performance in throughput, pattern fidelity and process yields by utilizing Molecular Imprints proven Jet and Flash™ Imprint Lithography (J-FIL™) technology, coupled with advances in manufacturing integration and automation. The HD7000 provides significant cost-of-ownership (CoO) advantages over previous generations and assures the role of imprint lithography as an integral step in state-of-the-art HDD patterned media manufacturing.
HDD manufacturers standardized on the J-FIL process, using the Imprio® HD2200, for their technology development of bit patterned media (BPM). NuTera HD7000 now makes the J-FIL process an integral part of complete manufacturing solutions that also include template replication tools (Perfecta™ TR1100), a family of customized, photoresist and related materials, and superior technical support. The NuTera and Perfecta platforms offer an unparalleled combination of feature resolution, low capital and operating cost, flexibility, ease of use, and environmental sensitivity.
Resolution: Sub-20nm, half-pitch for discrete track recording (DTR) and bit patterned media (BPM)
Throughput (double-sided): 350 disks per hour
Alignment:<10 microns (relative to disk spindle hole)
Disk Automation:Fully automated cassette-to-cassette and template loading
