Vacuum Engineering & Materials Gears for Growth and Innovation 

Expands state-of-the-art operations to meet growing demand for shield cleaning services

SANTA CLARA, California ---- Vacuum Engineering & Materials (VEM), a leading manufacturer of physical vapor deposition (PVD) sputtering targets and evaporation materials, has increased capacity of its ISO 9001:2008 certified facility in Santa Clara, California by 40%. As a direct result of growing customer demand for shield cleaning services, the expansion provides precision parts cleaning and surface treatment of PVD shield kits, as well as other process kit types, for manufacturers in the semiconductor, photonics, LED, data storage, aerospace & defense and life sciences industries. In addition to new, automated robotic controlled Twin Wire Arc Spray (TWAS) and Plasma Spray capability, the investment includes equipment for ultrasonic cleaning, cleanroom drying, bake out, new cleaning processes, and a cleanroom certified to Class 100.

The Twin Wire Arc Spray is a leading-edge technology that increases mean wafer between clean (MWBC) by applying an enhanced, textured coating on critical chamber components. The textured coating provides increased surface area of the parts and allows more material to be deposited as well as better deposition adhesion for better particle control. The Plasma Spray system allows for the ability to coat chamber components with high purity ceramic films, such as Al2O3 and Y2O3 to extend part life and improve surface cleanliness of parts.

"We’ve expanded our manufacturing capacity to better serve our customers and to provide them with one-stop solutions that will enable them to focus on their core businesses,” said Bob Kavanaugh, President of VEM. “We are pleased our expanded facility is up and running providing customers with fast turnaround and lower costs. VEM is committed to continuing investments in our state-of-the-art facilities, to further meet customer needs.”

Vacuum Engineering & Materials has been recognized as a trusted manufacturer of high-quality PVD materials for over 30 years. Based on years of experience, VEM continues to innovate new products and services that provide our customers with the latest PVD solutions available today.

Vacuum Engineering & Materials to Market EEJA Electroplating Semiconductor Equipment in the United States

VEM expands product portfolio promoting EEJA’s newly designed POSFER-E series electroplating equipment – compact, highly-functional and fully-automated equipment at a competitive price

San Jose, California – January 22, 2014.  Vacuum Engineering & Materials (VEM), a leading supplier of high-purity PVD materials, announced that it has entered into the semiconductor equipment market by signing a strategic sales representation agreement with Tanaka Kikinzoku International (AMERICA) Inc., a subsidiary of Tanaka Precious Metals, for products of  Electroplating Engineers of Japan (EEJA), based in  Kanagawa, Japan.  Under the terms of the agreement, VEM will act as a sales representative of EEJA’s wafer plating equipment including the newly announced POSFER-E series throughout the United States.

VEM has been providing expert sales and support to over 200 customers for 27 years. The addition of EEJA’s line of electroplating systems will fit well with VEM’s strong presence in the thin film materials market, expanding EEJA’s reach into United States.

By combining forces, “Vacuum Engineering & Materials, which has superior sales channels spanning throughout the entire United States, will enable EEJA to further expand business all over the U.S.,” said Mr.Kazuhiro Taniguchi, Director, General Manager of EEJA.  VEM’s professional approach and experienced sales team complements EEJA’s high quality product offering.

With the footprint for semiconductor equipment becoming smaller, EEJA is redesigning their POSFER-C series, and will be launching the POSFER-E series in January 2014.  The compact, highly-functional and fully-automated electroplating semiconductor system designed for up to 8-inch wafer volume production, delivers a 150% higher throughput, 40% smaller footprint and 40% reduced price when compared to its predecessor.  In addition, its unique cup structure is capable of agitating the plating solution powerfully near the wafer surface, improving embedded deep vias and thickness uniformity.

“We are very excited to bring our 27 years of marketing and sales expertise into partnership with EEJA,” said Jon Myers, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of VEM.  “This partnership is in alignment with our philosophy of continuously building on quality and service.  We believe the POSFER-E series will be of high interest to our current customers and look forward to forming a strong and long lasting partnership.”
