The semiconductor manufacturing industry relies on a vast supply chain for products and services that supply equipment, parts, consumables, and the cleaning, repair and overhaul services that support those items.
S & D Materials supplies chip fabs and foundries, along with a global network of companies supporting them, with 'ceramic' consumables – sapphire, quartz, SiC, silicon, ceramic, alumina – for every tool maker. We're a source for critical items when a tool is down, and we offer a portal to international supplier base, from sourcing and vendor qualification to transaction management.
S & D overhauls MKS/ASTeX plasma applicators used in multiple tools; we can either install new sapphire or quartz tubes in your applicator, or supply new units. We also repair and refurbish ferrofluid (magnetic) seals in feedthroughs and spindles from Novellus, AMAT, Axcelis, TEL and Varian; most models are also available for sale.
