Abstract:
ClassOne Equipment announced that it has achieved an industry milestone in the refurbished Semiconductor and MEMS equipment market with the recent sale of its 150th mask aligner to the Smart System Technology & Commercialization Center (STC), part of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany. In eight years, ClassOne Equipment has become a trusted supplier of high quality refurbished equipment to the semiconductor, MEMS and emerging technologies markets, now having sold over 1,500 pieces of manufacturing equipment to more than 500 customers around the world.

ClassOne Equipment Achieves Milestone in Refurbished Semiconductor and MEMS Equipment Market

Atlanta, GA | Posted on July 28th, 2011

"We are excited to have reached this significant milestone," said Byron Exarcos, president of ClassOne Equipment. "Our focus has always been to provide our customers with the quality they expect at a price they can afford. Our turn-key solution includes full refurbishment to original specifications, a 6-month warranty on parts and labor, and full installation and training, while still allowing the customer to save over 65 percent off the new price of the same tool."

In the process of expanding its capabilities to include a 200mm processing line, the CNSE's STC was in the market for a mask aligner with the capability to perform front-to-back alignment on both 200mm and 150mm wafers. Price, quality and lead time were critical factors in the Center's search for a supplier.

"In supplementing our 150mm wafer platform with 200mm wafer capacity, CNSE's STC provides an alignment capability that is very rare in the industry: extremely accurate front-to-back mask alignment with a high level of automation," said Paul Tolley, Vice President for Disruptive Technologies at CNSE and Executive Director of CNSE's STC. "With the ability to accurately pattern both sides of a single wafer, the addition of the SUSS MicroTec MA200 will open up new opportunities to support a variety of critical applications, including RFMEMS components, bio and chemical sensors, and microfluidic devices."

Like STC, research institutes and universities, MEMS start-up companies and fabs in full production around the world have recognized the value of purchasing refurbished mask aligners from ClassOne. With a large inventory of refurbished mask aligners from top manufacturers including SUSS, EVG, OAI, ABM and HTG, ClassOne typically has popular models such as the SUSS MJB3, MA6, MA150 and MA200 and the EVG 620 Mask Aligner in stock.

In addition to achieving this milestone success in its mask aligner line, ClassOne is experiencing significant growth in its other focus areas, including Semitool wet-processing equipment and KLA-Tencor metrology tools.
