II-VI makes Multimillion-Dollar Expansion in Taiwan


Expansion in Taiwan will double II-VI’s ion implanter disk refurbishing capacity

II‐VI Incorporated will extend its ion implanter disk refurbishing services to Asia, with a multimillion-dollar expansion in Hsinchu City, Taiwan, which is expected to come online in July 2022.

The acute shortages of semiconductor devices in the global supply chain are driving the strong demand for refurbishment of wafer fabrication equipment. The expansion in Taiwan will effectively double II-VI’s global disk refurbishing capacity. Batch implanter tool owners in Asia will benefit from a rapid turnaround service that will enable them to maintain their tools in operation and sustain their production output.

“The market demand for used ion implant equipment already exceeds availability by about a factor of ten, including in Asia,” said Sohail Khan, executive VP, New Ventures & Wide-Bandgap Electronics Technologies. “Our 25 years of expertise and innovations in disk refurbishment enable our customers to achieve an average of 30 percent savings on cost of ownership over OEM service. By coming to us, customers will reduce their maintenance costs and get the most out of their ion implanter equipment from higher reliability and longer service life.”

II-VI implants tens of thousands of wafers per week and adds tools and capacity as required to support customers’ changing needs. II-VI maintains a large complement of high- and medium-current and high-energy production implanters handling 2-inch to 12-inch substrates. II-VI provides ion implantation services for silicon and compound semiconductor wafers, including heated ion implantation for SiC wafers.

II-VI will participate as an exhibitor at the 36th International Conference on Compound Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology (CS MANTECH) in Monterey, California, May 9-11.
