  • Patent number: 8528762
    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed herein relate to a large vacuum chamber body that has been welded together. The chamber body may have a high emissivity coating on at least one surface therein. Due to the large size of the chamber body, the chamber body may be formed by welding several pieces together rather than forging the body from a single piece of metal. The pieces may be welded together at a location spaced from the corner of the body, which may be under the greatest stress during evacuation, to ensure that the weld, which may be the weakest point in the body, does not fail. At least one surface of the chamber body may be coated with a high emissivity coating to aid in heat transfer from incoming, heated substrates. The high emissivity coating may increase substrate throughput by lowering the time that may be needed to reduce the substrate temperature.

  • Publication number: 20130180878
    Abstract: A plastic package uses a substrate and an overlay, where both the substrate and the overlay are of materials which can be recycled together, for example polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The plastic used for the overlay may be different from the plastic used for the substrate, provided that the plastics are of the same thermoplastic family, or are of types which are compatible for recycling together. A method of making the package includes the steps of: positioning the product on a vacuum-forming fixture; heating a first layer of thermoplastic, positioning it over the product, and applying a vacuum to the fixture to pull the first layer of thermoplastic onto the product; and thermally bonding the first layer and a second layer of recycling-compatible thermoplastic to each other with the product between them, so as to capture the product. Apparatus having lease two stations is provided to carry out the method and thereby produce the package.
