Microelectronics / Advanced Technology

TARGETING PURE PERFORMANCE

Semiconductor and other advanced technologies are the ultimate expression of harnessed obsession. With tolerances so fine, depositions so precise and varied as well as performance standards exceedingly tight, margins are miniscule.

That applies to the chemicals, slurries, gases and water intrinsic to the process. As in, their purity, steady state flow rates and availability. Reliable delivery through high purity process piping is a necessary element in both R&D and production environments.

Since 1973, Kinetics has been an industry leader in designing, fabricating, installing and certifying high purity systems for chemicals, slurries, gases and ultrapure water required for semiconductor and other advanced technology applications. All against elevated standards.

Kinetics has installed critical process systems in over 150 factories, for 50 of the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturers. Kinetics focuses extensive experience on the turnkey design and installation of critical process systems while serving as the single point-of-responsibility.

It all begins in close collaboration with clients to understand their technical, schedule and budget requirements in order to develop optimized factory designs and process solutions. In the fab, Kinetics tool hook-up teams enable critical production tools to be installed and started-up within strict scheduling windows.

Proven project management and quality assurance processes enable Kinetics to meet tough customer requirements as part of construction of new factories or the expansion of existing facilities. That includes high purity process piping. Then, during operation, Kinetics’ TCM and TCGM (total chemical & gas management) on-site teams operate critical chemical and gas systems to high standards of safety, efficiency and reliability.

Kinetics provides process systems for a range of demanding applications:

BARRIERS TO EXCELLENCE: Top clarity questions > Part 1 of 2

Microelectronics and advanced technology attract some of the best and brightest minds. Out to both excel as individuals and contribute to enterprise success, these talented women and men tend toward mastery of materials and process. That includes high purity process piping.

To design, fabricate, install and certify high purity systems for chemicals, slurries, gases and ultrapure water required for semiconductor and other advanced technology applications is difficult: So is collaborating effectively with others.

Instead of becoming expert in the subtleties of human psychology or slowing the process down to quadruple check each detail, a better path exists through focused inquiry. That means not simply ticking off action items but holding each other accountable to a higher standard.

The TOP TEN QUESTIONS to employ in implementing a system: Part 1 of 2

1) WHERE IS THIS LEADING? What is the desired outcome of this project, stage or step for each of us?

2) WHAT IS OUR PERFORMANCE DASHBOARD? Which metrics need to be watched more closely?

3) WHERE ARE WE WILLING TO FLEX? How can we accommodate each other to deliver our targets given resource limitations (including time)?

4) WHAT DATA ARE WE MISSING? What gaps need to filled to gain insight needed to make solid decisions?

5) WHO MAKES FINAL DECISIONS? Where will we go to get approval – and authorization – for our recommendations?

Kinetics stands ready to discuss an upcoming project as part of a success-focused team.  As such, any and all questions are welcomed, particularly those that build connections early on for meaningful progress from start to finish.
