Vacuum firm launches outsourcing group for semi manufacturing

August 7, 2006 – Helium Leak Testing Inc., Northridge, CA, a provider of helium leak detection systems, has formed a semiconductor fabrication service group to support installation, repair and servicing of vacuum systems from US and international manufacturers, including Alcatel, Balzer, DuPont, Edwards, Leybold, Varian, Veeco, and VIC Systems. The company also provides vacuum gauge and leak standards calibration and repair services as well as custom fixture design.

While vacuum technology is vital to the semiconductor manufacturing process, “it is not a main focus for the typical manufacturing engineering group with a semiconductor manufacturing company,” stated Nancy Tech, president of HLT, citing the growing trend to outsource service and support functions, including at the subsystems level, such as legacy vacuum systems.
