Turnkey Semiconductor Tool Relocation

When it comes to the movement of semiconductor tools, IES engineers manage and execute every step of the relocation. From decontamination and de-install, to movement, packing, transport and shipping, and installation, commissioning and validation at the destination site; rely on us to stay on time, and on budget.

Our vast, multi-decade experience of moving semiconductor equipment, including some of the most advanced nanofabrication technology, means that we are able to co-ordinate and deliver all aspects of an ion implanter relocation. We provide the technical expertise, fab support and equipment to ensure a seamless move. Working alongside your operations personnel, we ensure the smooth transport of high value, production critical tools between facilities.

Ion Implanter Decontamination

Cleanroom services from IES are second to none. We provide a full decontamination service for ion implanters including beam line parts, process chambers, and wheels.

We understand the complexities of cleanroom environments, and are always fully prepared for the demands of each project. Our decontamination team comes equipped with hazmat suit, decontamination kit and breathing equipment. The decontamination service is concluded by swab testing around the tool, and lab analysis of samples taken to ensure the removal of all toxic residue.

Semiconductor Tools Modifications and Upgrades

If you have a wafer size conversion planned, or would like to enhance your tools with an upgrade kit, count on IES as your semiconductor equipment modification provider.

With the turnkey semiconductor service from IES, you can take advantage of a value-added solution thanks to our technical knowledge and on-site capabilities. We allow you to combine equipment modifications with an equipment move, minimising disruption to production. In addition to modifications and upgrades, we offer repairs and preventative maintenance for semiconductor tools.
