BOC Australia, a member of leading gases and engineering company The Linde Group, has unveiled a new $20m specialty gases production facility and $15m robot cylinder automation system at its Sydney Operations Centre in Wetherill Park.
Electronic Fluorocarbons (EFC), headquartered in Massachusetts, utilizes the latest technology for the purification and microanalysis of its legacy fluorinated specialty gases and rare gases for the medical and electronics semiconductor manufacturing industries.
The electronics industry is entering a new period of clarity and confidence, gas world understands, as it converges with conviction on the technology roadmaps of its future. Like most other industries, however, the electronics sector is still under significant pressure to address increased process complexity, performance, and regulatory requirements.
In 2016, China manufactured 2.1 billion sets of mobile phone, a 13.6% increase from 1.81 billion sets in 2015, and a one billion units increase over five years. This is just a simple example of how the electronics industry in China is booming, at an astounding rate.
Rewind 3 to 4 years, and much of the conjecture in the electronics business surrounded the next wave of expected technologies and wafer fabrication processes, from 450mm wafers to 14 nanometer (14nm) node transistors to lithographic patterning.
Happy New Year! We begin another 12 months of bringing our readers the very best in business intelligence with a review of the trends impacting the North American industrial gas industry. The writers and editors of gas world US are constantly in touch with industry leaders who work on the ...
According to The Gas Review, dry etching is being used increasingly in manufacturing processes for mounting semiconductors and printed-circuit boards (PCBs) used in electronic devices.
Driven by industry, the demand for higher purity gases seems to be never ending. It wasn’t that long ago that the packaging of UHP (Ultra High Purity, 99.999%) gases were generally reserved for a small percentage of the most sophisticated independent distributors and maybe not all branches of the major ...
Pfeiffer Vacuum has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Lanzhou Institute of Physics (LIP) in Asslar, Germany.
As we head in to 2018, we look back on a very interesting changing market for krypton (Kr), xenon (Xe) and neon (Ne) in 2017. Ne supply this year continued to increase as new plants came on-stream while the demand was growing slowly after the big decline of 2016.
