Sensitive components such as monocrystalline wafers from the photovoltaic and semiconductor industries as well as optical lenses and prisms and super-finely structured substrates place tough demands on component cleaning: the tiniest of contamination must be reliably removed without compromising the surface. For these demanding cleaning tasks, Weber Ultrasonics has developed the intelligent SonoPower 3S megasound system with frequencies from 500 to 1000kHz. It ensures especially gentle and yet effective handling of the components with high levels of cleanliness. The system consists of the intelligent SonoPower 3S Megasonic Boost and the matching SonoPlate HF high-frequency transducers.
In operation, the generator, which is available in the power classes 250W and 500W, employs various innovative features to ensure that cleaning is gentle on the surface while soiling is removed reliably. These include the combined frequency and amplitude modulation, which guarantee homogeneous sound fields and thus prevent standing waves.
