Small-Tech Tools Unveils MEKA Hot Plate

West Chester, OH | June 30, 2005

Today Small-Tech Tools announced the unveiling of the MEKA Hot Plate, a remanufactured hot plate for use in the emerging technologies of Microelectronics and Nanotechnology.

Small-Tech Tools, a provider of products and services to research institutions worldwide, is now bringing its expertise to the remanufacturing market. Cost conscientious customers who want production quality equipment will find that a remanufactured hot plate from Small-Tech Tools will meet their requirements.

The MEKA Hot Plate is 25% of the cost of similar new units with the same specifications and includes a no hassle warranty, i.e., return for any reason (don’t like color, smell, taste, sound, etc.). “With our remanufacturing techniques, we are able to reduce the cost of the MEKA Hot Plate while obtaining production-worthy quality,” commented Steve Birdsong, Sales and Marketing Director of STT. He added, “We are able to save our clients money by removing a hot plate from a photolithography track machine, replacing the consumable parts and repackaging the entire unit. Why replace or restore stainless steel parts that do not go bad?”

In May 2005, the first MEKA Hot Plate was installed at Applied Nanostructures in Santa Clara, California. Applied Nanostructures is a supplier of Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM) probes and structures based on nanofabrication technology. “The Hot Plate (MEKA) is great for preexposure and post-exposure bakes where time to bake is critical,” said Ami Chand, President of Applied Nanostructures ( Dr. Chand went on to say, “It is an ideal tool to meet our small volume nanofabrication needs.” While meeting their specifications, Applied Nanostructures was able to reduce startup costs by purchasing the remanufactured Hot Plate.
