Ultra Fast Scanner

Shared investment in a device that revolutionizes pathology labs

The Ultra-Fast Scanner (UFS), launched by a Philips incubator, radically changes how hospital- and pathology laboratories work with preparing, imaging and analyzing samples. Frencken not only managed the overall engineering and executes project management and final assembly, but also shared the initial development costs and therefore also shared the risk in bringing an innovative new product to market.

SEM stage

Mechanical design and assembly of an ultra-high resolution SEM stage

A leading manufacturer of Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEMs) for material science, life science, electronics and industrial applications. One of the key components of a SEM is the electro-mechanical module that accurately positions the sample below the electron- or ion optics, and is called a stage. Frencken manufactures an Ultra-high resolution (UHR) SEM stage, and has also developed a 110 mm SDB stage for the same company.

Mass spectrometer

Performance-critical modules for ion optics and electron optics

Frencken has been supplying analytical equipment manufacturer Thermo Fisher Scientific with modules for various instruments. Due to growing market demand, one of this customer’s products (the iCAP Q mass spectroscope) required a fast ramp-up to higher volume production, Frencken has successfully managed this process.

Air shower

Machine-specific mechanical assembly for temperature stabilization

Since even a slight temperature variation of a semiconductor wafer can influence accuracy of the electron-beam lithography process, an air shower is required for stabilizing the temperature during the end qualification of a wafer stepper. Frencken provides flexible production of these machine-specific modules with a fast turnaround.

Reticle masking unit

Single-source partner for a key module in every wafer stepper

Every wafer stepper, from a well know semiconductor technology giant from the Netherlands, features a reticle masking unit (REMA) assembled by Frencken. This module is strategically critical, and is entrusted to Frencken as a single-source supplier, who not only assembles it, but also manages the supply chain and provides lifecycle support.

E-beam lithography equipment

Mechanical design and assembly of a high-end direct-write mask maker

Vistec supplies high-end electron beam lithography systems, including equipment for low-volume production of semiconductor wafers. The EBPG5200 directly writes integrated circuits with features sizes less than 8 nanometers across, and is assembled by Frencken’s skilled people using state-of-the-art cleanroom and vacuum production environments. Frencken also carried out the prototyping and mechanical design, and engineered the ‘load-lock’ vacuum wafer handling chamber.
