Versum Materials to Exhibit at SEMICON Korea
TEMPE, AZ, January 23, 2018—Versum Materials, Inc. (NYSE: VSM), a leading materials and equipment supplier to the semiconductor industry, will showcase its next-generation of products and delivery systems and services in Booth 420, (located on the third floor) at SEMICON Korea. The event takes place Jan. 31 to Feb. 2 at the COEX Conference and Exhibition Center in Seoul.
For the past 30 years, VMHYT (a Korean entity under the Versum Materials’ Delivery Systems and Services business segment) has supplied a full range of localized delivery systems to the region. Representatives from VMHYT will demonstrate two new pieces of equipment during the exhibition—the GasKeeper™ Intelligent Remote Controller and the Cylinder Automover Transport System.
The GasKeeper Intelligent Remote Controller adds Internet of Things (IoT) technology to control and monitor the VMHYT gas cabinet controller system via a mobile device and observe the inside of unit with a closed-circuit television or surveillance system. The revolutionary robotic technology in the Cylinder Automover Transport System moves and positions heavyweight cylinders between storage areas and gas cabinets, using a joystick control and a proprietary position-detecting system. The precision of the system provides ergonomic safety to increase the productivity of cylinder handlers in semiconductor manufacturing within the sub-fab.
Versum will also showcase ION-X®, a new line of products developed by NuMat Technologies for the safe storage and delivery of subatmospheric dopant gases such as arsine, phosphine and boron trifluoride. With its Metal-Organic Framework (MOF), ION-X can selectively adsorb, store and safely deliver ultra-high purity gases at sub-atmospheric pressures. ION-X offers performance advantages over traditional carbon-based adsorbent technology used in the ion implant processes for the manufacture of semiconductor devices.
“We take pride in our close collaboration with our customers in South Korea to develop cutting-edge solutions for semiconductor manufacturing.technology. We are making strategic investments in new scale-up and high-volume manufacturing within our five Korean production facilities and have made significant R&D investments to advance our deposition and CMP portfolios,” said Guillermo Novo, CEO of Versum Materials, Inc. “SEMICON Korea provides an ideal opportunity to share our passion for delivering next-generation materials and delivery systems with our customers and partners.”
