Entegris announces entry into new segment of semiconductor market

Entegris, Inc. (Nasdaq: ENTG), the materials integrity management company, announced its official entry into the semiconductor tape and reel market with the availability of its new Stream™ product line.

Tape and reel is a packaging system designed to protect and transport microelectronic components, while enabling the high-speed automated placement of the components onto printed circuit boards used for today’s electronics. Entegris’ new offering is the first step in the company’s long-term goal to provide customers with an innovative and comprehensive tape and reel solution. New product development efforts are currently underway.

“Our move into this market is a natural extension of our core business,” said Michael Wright, Entegris’ chief operating officer. “End users in the tape and reel market are demanding new innovation, that requires our leadership. Entegris’ experience and expertise in material and application knowledge positions us to deliver that innovation with advanced products and services. We will continue to leverage our expertise in this new market, and others, by seeking out relationships that complement our development efforts with advanced technologies.”

The Stream™ product line provides several benefits to semiconductor manufacturers including enhanced productivity and reduced costs. The EIA (Electronic Industries Association) compliant tape and reel packaging enables high speed automated pick and place board assembly to increase through-put. In addition, the reels are uniform in size allowing for equipment flexibility and provide an area for bar code labels to facilitate automated inventory control and component traceability.

Entegris is currently taking orders for its Stream™ products including carrier tape, cover tape and shipping reels. Entegris Stream™ Carrier Tape, constructed of ESD-safe engineered polymers, is currently available in widths ranging from 12 mm to 72 mm. The company expects to expand its offering later this year.
