Crossing Automation Continues to See Strong 300 mm Spartan™ Sorter Sales

Semiconductor Foundry Places Multiple 300 mm Sorter Orders for Two Sites

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 12, 2011) - Crossing Automation, Inc. (, a leading designer and manufacturer of fab automation and robotic equipment used by today's global semiconductor companies, today announced that it has received both new and follow-on orders for multiple 300 mm Spartan™ Sorters. The orders were received from a single foundry customer and the systems will be installed in two of its leading-edge facilities for use in volume production.
