NanoFab Tool: Suss MicroTec SB6e Wafer Bonder


The Suss MicroTec SB6e wafer bonder is a universal vacuum substrate bonder for designed for a wide range of microelectromechanical system (MEMS) applications. Prior to bonding, substrate stacks can be mechanically clamped using a transport fixture or temporarily bonded by adhesion film. The transport fixture also fits into the Suss MA6 mask aligner, allowing users to precisely pre-align their substrates before bonding.


  • Minimum chamber vacuum: 5 x 10-3 Pa (5 x 10-8 bar).
  • Maximum temperature: 500 °C.
  • Bonding force range on a 150 mm wafer: 20 kN to 300 N.
  • High voltage power supply for anodic bonding.
  • Supported bonding methods: anodic, adhesive, fusion, eutectic, and glass frit.
  • Aligned bonding support for whole wafers on MA6.
  • Transport fixture for bonded whole wafers is compatible with the NanoFab's Suss MA6 mask aligner.
