Semiconductors make most of today’s technological marvels possible: the Internet, computers, tablets, smartphones, and all of the other advancements that empower superfast communications. Most people born in the last thirty years probably couldn’t imagine life without semiconductors! They also remain one of the United States’ top manufactured exports.
In this blog, we’ll explain why companies who want to continue engineering breakthrough products will need to rely on semiconductor precision plastic machining. Just as semiconductors have been vital to the advancement of electronics in the past, they’re even more essential today—and the demands on them even greater.
Any manufacturer of semiconductors knows the industry is facing pressure, as an increasingly competitive market demands better, faster, and stronger products every year. Just a few of the issues the semiconductor industry faces include:
Combined, a few key properties of engineering plastics equip them to take on these challenges. The semiconductor plastics we machine:
Making use of specialty plastics for test sockets, insulators, handling trays, die pickup collets, contractors & nests, DUT boards, screws, gaskets, spacers, housings, and other components can have a major effect on equipment productivity.
