Title (EN) MATERIAL SUPPLY SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE D'ALIMENTATION EN MATERIAU
Abstract:
(EN) A system and a method for feeding a solid into a solid deposition system is described. Solid contained in a hopper is directed into a vibratory bowl. The frequency of the vibrations of the vibratory bowl can be modulated by a feedback system. The solid can then be entrained in a carrier gas which can flow to a distributor for deposition on a substrate.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé servant à introduire une matière solide dans un système de dépôt de matière solide. La matière solide contenue dans une trémie est dirigée vers un bol vibrant. La fréquence des vibrations de ce bol vibrant peut être modulée par un système de rétroaction. La matière solide peut ensuite être entraînée dans un gaz porteur pouvant s'écouler vers un distributeur pour être déposée sur un substrat.
