How Hudson Supports Semiconductor Manufacturing
At Hudson Technologies, we produce deep-drawn metal parts for specialized machinery used to manufacture semiconductors and semiconductor wafers. If you require machine parts exclusively for semiconductor manufacturing equipment, we can provide you with top-quality custom parts to meet your needs.
Semiconductor fabrication entails the production of semiconductors and semiconductor wafers, with the need for highly specialized equipment that can meet the specific requirements in this industry. One of these requirements is adherence to tight tolerances, as there is no room for error and the final products are extremely small and delicate.
Based on our customers’ individual needs, Hudson can provide the components and parts needed for semiconductor manufacturing machinery such as:
- Flow control
Custom Metal Bellows
Hudson manufactures metal bellows used in semiconductor manufacturing machinery through the use of deep-drawn stamping. Machinery used for semiconductor fabrication relies on bellows for their ability to contain a vacuum, block contaminants, and facilitate an ultra-clean environment throughout the manufacturing process.
Depending on your needs, we can provide several types of conventional and welded-edge bellows such as:
- Wafer lift
- Vacuum valve
- Load lock
- Chamber lift
Some specific applications for bellows used in semiconductor manufacturing machines include:
- Slit valves
- Gas lines
- Gate valves
- Beam lines
- Flexible couplings
- Motion feedthroughs
- Leak detectors
- XYZ manipulators
- Valve stem seals
- Torque couplings
- Wafer handlers
- Ultra-high vacuum systems
Custom Metal Pressure Transducer Diaphragms
In semiconductor fabrication machinery, MPS sensors and diaphragms are often used for creating and sensing motion as the equipment transfers semiconductor chips between fabrication processes. To help facilitate this, Hudson can manufacture metal pressure transducer diaphragms for use in semiconductor manufacturing.
Deep Drawn Component Specifications, Materials, and Tolerances
At Hudson, we have a vast array of forming equipment, in-house custom tooling capabilities, and more than 15,000 standard tooling products available. With this equipment and supplies along with plenty of experience, we can accommodate most requests for many types of semiconductor manufacturing parts and components. Depending on your individual needs regarding part shapes, tolerances, sizes, and volumes, we can provide a custom solution that’s right for you.
Our capabilities for deep-drawn component production include:
Size: We can manufacture parts between 1/8’’ (3.1mm) to 12’’ (305mm) in diameter and 12’’ in length. For corrugated and flat metal diaphragms, we can also provide parts with a diameter between .200’’ to 18’’.
Shape: If you require specific shapes for your parts and components, we can produce shapes that are square, rectangular, round, and asymmetrical.
Thickness: Parts can range from .002’’ (.005 mm) to .187’’ (4.75mm). Meanwhile, for flat and corrugated metal diaphragms, we can provide thicknesses between .0005’’ to .001’’.
Volume: We can manufacture anywhere from a single prototype to bulk quantities of as many as 5,000,000 products.
Precision: Part tolerances on custom cases can be as minimal as +/- .002’’ (.05mm) or +/- .0005’’ (.0127mm) for precision headers and .005’’ (.127mm) for drawn corner radii.
Materials: We can also work with many materials that are commonly used in the semiconductor industry, including:
- Stainless Steel
Regardless of your specific requirements for semiconductor fabrication systems, the team at Hudson Technologies works closely with each of our customers to maximize quality and make any changes as needed. We’ll work to ensure you’re consistently satisfied with our products and services, giving your business the solution it needs for optimal efficacy and profitability.
