Wet bench technology for chemical processing in microelectronics, solar and biomedical industry

Summary

Italian company producing wet bench equipment working with microelectronics industry has developed a new modular chemical processing system. The technology, available for demonstration, is a wet bench and wet process system designed for semiconductor processing equipment. The company seeks partners in the industry of microelectronics, biomedical, photovoltaic and solar for joint venture or manufacturing agreement.

Partner sought

The company seeks industrial partners of microelectronics, photovoltaic and solar, biomedical sector for joint venture or manufacturing agreement The partner sought has to be interested to wet bench process systems. The partners will be involved in the implementation phase (design and manufacture).

Description

Since all things electronic in our modern world are founded on semiconductor integrated circuit technology, the satellite businesses or support services have arisen and thrived around the precise science of manufacturing semiconductor chips or wafers. The Italian company has 30 years of experience and builds the semiconductor wet bench and ultra-pure fluid transfer systems. Typically, a wet bench is a fully-automated process tool used to carry out wet cleaning and etching operations in semiconductor manufacturing or other high technology sectors (photovoltaic, solar, biomedical industry). Wet benches are essential components in the production and treatment of silicon wafers through an innovative cleaning system which, in a controlled environment, eliminates the risk of particle contamination during the production process. It assures safety for the operators reducing or eliminating the direct contact with harmful chemicals and solvents. The Italian high-tech company has honed the wet bench technology in cooperation with a main customer, a large Italian microelectronics company. The system has been manufactured on specific demand of the customers. The wet bench construction materials are: --Teflon PFA (perfluoroalkoxy copolymer resin), --PVDF (Polyvinylidene fluoride), -PPS (Polyphenylene sulfide), -CORZAN PVC-C sheets. It is realized with clean system that allows obtaining smooth surfaces without flaw; the folding system consists in eliminating the parts to knit with thermal perforation during the planning phase. No particles contamination means greater wafer production and thus cost reduction for the customer. The development of a modular wet bench system is the result of years of experience in the semiconductor industry that led to a research project for the development of this new, innovative technology. It includes fully automatic, semi-automatic and manual options, with a choice of linear and rotary robotics. The planning and design of company wet benches and fluid transfer systems takes place in the Project & Design Division where the team of engineers works at direct and close contact with the clients to develop and offer turnkey solutions that satisfy and meet the customer’s requirements. The Italian company is looking for industrial partners from microelectronics and semiconductors fields aiming at developing innovative, fully automated wet benches technology. Biomedical, photovoltaic and solar industry utilize this process technology as well. The market forecast of this application in the sector microelectronics, photovoltaic and solar, biomedical are very positive. The partner sought has to be interested to utilize the wet bench chemical process equipment for joint venture or manufacturing agreement.

Advantages and innovations

The wet bench chemical process equipment has the following main advantages: --custom built to design equipment for various cleaning applications commonly found in the Semiconductor, MEMS, Photonics, Solar Cell, Disc Drive and Flat Panel Display manufacturing industries; --modularity of the system; --reducing cycle times which means more efficient process resulting in cost and time savings; --reliability -centered maintenance (RCM), as each unit has easy-to-reach compartments that easily allow the operator to do maintenance in complete safety; --fully customizable according to customer’s requirements.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
