● Low particleThe amount of attached particle is ultra low.
This is directly available in a cleanroom. This does not bring contaminated matters into a cleanroom.
● Vacuum-supportedA material with which outgas production in a vacuum environment is small is used.
If misalignment becomes larger due to vacuum pressure difference,MOHS MOP, for which larger misalignment is permitted, are recommended.
● Less outgasMaterials with which production of outgas that causes chemical contamination under atmospheric environment is small are used.
● Heat resistantThis is available even in an environment of high temperature（ 80℃ or higher）
Elongation or deflection of a shaft associated with thermal expansion may increase misalignment. If misalignment becomes larger, MOHS MOP, for which larger misalignment is permitted, is recommended.
● Chemical resistantMaterials superior in chemical resistance are used.
Analysis of outgas
*Both inorganic gas and organic gas are not more than the lower limit of determined amount and are not detected.
Change in static torsional stiffness due to temperature
This is a value for each product under the condition where the static torsional stiffness at 20°C is 100%.

No. 7: SEMI Standards
Explains the SEMI standard.
NBK has SEMI standard compliant products, that can be selected according to the application.
No. 2: Vacuum environments
Vacuum technology is often used in semiconductor manufacturing equipment. A vacuum is not required for all equipment. A vacuum would mainly be required for equipment that uses plasma or an electron beam. In Part 2, we introduce some NBK products that are ideal for use in these vacuum environments!
