Wafab’s line of wet processing stations, chemical deposition tools and related components serves the university and R&D segments of the semiconductor and solar markets.

The Wafab Story

Acquired by Kinetics in February 2017, Wafab spent 40 years as an independent global equipment supplier, carving a niche for developing process technology in a high purity environment. Its product lines comprise primarily new and refurbished wet benches for processing chemicals and etching wafers.

Equipment Offerings

With the addition of Wafab product lines, Kinetics’ offering extends from the sub-fab through the cleanroom, and from process development through high-volume manufacturing.

Chemical Process Systems: In three words, Wafab wet process tools for chemical deposition are described as flexible, configurable, and economical.

Process Media Distribution Systems: With an international installed base of over 1,500 process media systems, Kinetics masters the challenge of moving materials into, around, or out of any process environment.

Facility Support Systems: From recirculating baths, to immersion pumps, dump rinsers, pump stations, and more, all the components needed to provide turnkey wet processing solutions are here.


Wafab’s original facility in Livermore, CA now serves as the KESG headquarters, expanding the company’s domestic manufacturing footprint. It houses Kinetics equipment design and manufacturing operations, facility management businesses, engineering, and support.
