Description of the ASAP Lift-Off Tool and its Highlights

Lift-Off is a relatively cheap structuring alternative when etching might have a negative effect on the underlying layers. However, lift-off can be a messy process. The main problems are re-deposition of the lifted metal, retention of unwanted parts of the metal layer and non-removal of the metal ‘ears’. The lift-off tools from ASAP address these issues in elegant and efficient way with a number of technological details. As an example, the unique high-pressure nozzle adds mechanical strength to the chemical function of the solvent and achieves a very high yield even in challenging constellations.


How Do You support Customers in Europe?

ASAP has a strong presence in the Japanese and Asian market but there are tools in North America as well. After the installation at your premises by ASAP engineers, unplanned maintenance is extremely rare. The tools from ASAP use only the newest components of the highest quality. Planned maintenance can be done by yourself with our instructions. If items need to be serviced, an specialized engineer from ASAP will travel from Japan to your location to solve it on the spot.

Why are ASAP Lift-OFF tools so special?

The specially designed high pressure nozzle, the solvent cavitation, its controlled heating and the process know-how do make the most difference. Process reliability and high yields are a given with this tool. Yet there are a lot of thoughtful details that you will love about working with this machine. It offers the flexibility of a R+D tool with the reliable robotics needed for high throughput.

How is the recycling done?

ASAP pays a lot of attention to these often underestimated details of the lift-off process. Re-using the solvent after careful filtering and preparation in certain process steps will save you and the environment liters and gallons of solvent throughout the year. Also the baskets for scrap-metal recovery are easy to access, increasing the quantity of recycling metal without making a mess in the clean room.

Do you process my wafers?

Right now we do not have the capability to act as an OEM manufacturer but we are looking for partners to be able to do so in the future. If you want to try out how our tools work on your devices, please get in touch and send us some samples. We are eager to show off and learn about new applications. If you own ASAP tools and would like to offer OEM services, please get in touch too.


ASAP’s tools are built to last and very robust with a focus on performance and quality. ASAP has been around for for more than 20 years and has earned a reputation for excellent tools in the semiconductor industry in Asia and it is about time that European and North American customers get to benefit from their advantageous designs.
