The customer, one of the top five global semiconductor manufacturers, has integrated Entegris' STAT-PRO® 3000 Advanced Wafer Transport Carriers into its European fab. The wafer carriers are designed to protect and transport silicon wafers used in the semiconductor industry.
Thousands of the Entegris 200 mm advanced wafer carriers were shipped to the semiconductor manufacturer during Entegris' third fiscal quarter. The product conversion was complete last month. The order, which is expected to bring a rapid and significant return on investment for the semiconductor manufacturer, brought in excess of one million dollars in revenue for Entegris.
"This order demonstrates our customer's confidence in Entegris' ability to not only deliver products of superior technology and quality, but to deliver superior service and support as well," said Michael Wright, Entegris chief operating officer. "Our implementation processes ensure the lowest risk of downtime to our customers, which is key for any semiconductor manufacturer. We are able to provide excellent applications and engineering resources with OEM networks, resulting in smooth conversions like this one."
The Entegris 200 mm advanced wafer carriers, made from PEEK material, deliver dimensional stability and rigidity, low levels of particulation, minimal outgassing, high thermal processing capabilities and a long life-cycle. The carriers are a component of the Entegris Silicon Delivery Systems and Services, a materials integrity management solution designed to cost effectively manage silicon from production to consumption. This solution, which supports todays advanced semiconductor processing facilities, allows the end user to increase their profitability by increasing production yields and processing speeds.
