High-volume manufacturing requires an optimized system configuration to meet demanding throughput and reliability requirements. Manufacturers in semiconductors, consumer electronics and other high-demand industries need the right equipment to scale into high-volume production without losing the key process controls that impact performance and drive quality.
When selecting a thin film deposition system, it’s important to consider tools that provide high yield, throughput and deposition rate. But rather than just adding or combining tools that drive production, a thin film system that’s properly optimized for high volume will provide the right level of automation to meet reliability, uptime, and throughput demands while also delivering on overall application-specific requirements.
Denton Vacuum offers a number of systems and tools to enable maximum efficiency and throughput without sacrificing on the process control and performance requirements that are critical to your application.
To best position yourself for high-volume production, you’ll need to partner with a thin film system solutions provider that has a proven track record of supporting scale into high volumes. Look for a service-focused partner that can ensure high uptime for your equipment. You’ll also want a company with experience in various tools and methods to increase throughput and deposition rate, such as cluster architecture and in-situ controls like plasma emission monitoring (PEM). Your vendor should work with you to first specify thin film requirements, and then design an application-specific configuration that meets those requirements for a working production process.
