”We anticipate a considerable up-tick for machine vision inspection systems in the production of mems and semi-conductors.”Junya Inoue · MORITEX Vertriebsmanager
8-Inch MEMS line benefits from an innovative automatic optical wafer inspection systemThe BEANS project is an R & D project devoted to performing research into the micro- and nano-scale integrated manufacturing technology necessary to create the innovative devices of the future. The project started off as an enterprise consigned by NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Development Organization) in 2008. The goal is to develop three processes – processes that enable the fusion of bio and organic materials, processes for forming 3D nanostructures, and processes for continuous large-area manufacturing of micronano structures – but also to build related knowledge databases. The project has been run by the BEANS Research Center, a technology research cooperative, since 2009. Notable results include a robot with olfactory sensors, implantable blood sugar sensors, bile canaliculi fabrication technology, and thermoelectric material which have all been widely reported on in the media.
