  • Publication number: 20180122660
    Abstract: Embodiments of the inventive concept relate to an apparatus for supporting a substrate and a method for treating a substrate. The substrate support apparatus includes a substrate support member including a support plate having an upper surface that supports a substrate, and a heating member provided in the support plate to heat the substrate, wherein an area of the support plate has a buffer area, in which a buffer space for restricting a heat transfer rate of heat provided from the heating member to the upper surface is formed. The buffer space insulates a central area and a peripheral area, thereby maximizing a temperature difference between the central area and the peripheral area.

  • Patent number: 8461490
    Abstract: Provided are a substrate heating unit heating a substrate, and a substrate treating apparatus including the same. The substrate heating unit heats the substrate by transferring heat generated from a resistance heat generating member to a supporting plate. The supporting plate includes an upper plate having a central region which is thicker than an edge region thereof, and a lower plate made of a material having a thermal conductivity lower than the material of the upper plate. By a difference in the shape and material of the upper plate and lower plate, heat arrives at the substrate more rapidly in the edge region than in the central region, so that an entire surface of the substrate is heated uniformly.

  • Patent number: 5809807
    Abstract: A washing machine which can immerse articles in a washing liquid has a spin tub formed at a side wall thereof with a pair of elongated slots, and a spin tub cover assembly for immersing the articles in the washing liquid. The elongated slots are longitudinally formed along the whole length of the spin tub. The spin tub cover assembly moves along the elongated slots. The spin tub cover assembly includes an annular frame, first and second coupling pins for movably coupling the annular frame to the spin tub, and a cover plate hinged to the annular frame. The cover plate has a latch which is detachably engaged with the annular frame. The washing machine can immerse the articles into the washing liquid by means of the spin tub cover assembly, so the articles widely collide with the liquid flows within the spin tub, thereby improving the washing effect.
