Spindles Extend Service Life and Lower
Repair Cost for LAM-SEZ® Da Vinci® Wet Etch
Technologies, the only independent thin-section bearing manufacturer in
the semiconductor industry, and Sparetech Inc., a distributor of
specialty parts, have introduced a high performance remanufactured
spindle for use in LAM-SEZ® Da Vinci DV34 and DV38 wet etch
tools. The rebuilt spindles improve performance over original OEM parts
while costing less and having a longer more predictable service life.
They utilize high-precision shielded ceramic hybrid bearings packed with
a high performance non-fluorinated lubricant. These unique bearings are
rated to 16,000 rpm. Used or broken spindles are disassembled, cleaned
and rebuilt with new bearings to Fala specifications, which are better
than original OEM specs. Refurbished parts are returned in two weeks.
Fala remanufactured spindles are warranted for two years.
"Companies that utilize multiple Da Vinci tools can expect to save over
$100K per year on spindles," noted Fred Bouchard, sales manager of
Fala Technologies Inc.
For more than 60 years Fala Technologies Inc. has been producing
precision-machined parts for technology applications. Today, from the
Fala state-of-the-art 50,000 square foot Kingston, NY facility, the
company provides innovative engineering, advanced technology products and
services to the global semiconductor and nanotechnology markets. Advanced
R&D organizations such as International Sematech and Albany Nanotech
as well as leading OEMs rely on Fala products. This includes shielded
ceramic bearings, mini-environments, automated front-end handling
systems, clean room templates, wafer/reticle depodders and reticle
shufflers for use in robots, valve assemblies, spindles and motors.
