The electronics industry is made up of numerous companies with key activities in semiconductor, consumer electronics and information technology. Semiconductors are the brains of modern electronics, enabling technologies critical to economic growth and global competitiveness. Semiconductors have produced improvements in communications, computing, health care, national security, transportation and countless other applications. They also lead us to new technologies that promise to improve and transform society for the better.
To ensure success in the semiconductor and electronics industry, the emphasis is placed on creating smaller, faster and cheaper products. This created fierce competition and the constant pressure on companies to come up with something better and cheaper than what defined state of the art only a few months before.
The semiconductor equipment production industry is divided into front-end and back-end processes. The front-end process includes cutting-edge technology and integration. It also includes the making of silicon wafer for manufacturing multiple integrated devices and the designing of electric circuits on the wafers. The back-end process involves chip assembly and test processes that includes dicing wafers and testing chips.
Dura-Metal supports the industry with the introduction of Plasma Spray, Twin Wire Arc Spray, Laser Technologies which helps manufacturers improve the efficiency and quality of their product.
