Simco-Ion takes a customized and comprehensive approach to total cleanroom ionization. Proper grounding procedures can efficiently neutralize charges on conductors, but only ionization can eliminate harmful charges on isolated conductors and insulative materials such as plastics.
Data Storage Manufacturing
Sensitive magnetoresistive (MR) heads are easily damaged or destroyed by ESD events. Simco-Ion's overhead and benchtop ionizers quickly neutralize harmful electrostatic charges with stable balance performance and protect critical disk drive assembly and production processes.
Electronic products require protection from the destructive effects of electrostatic discharge (ESD), which can seriously damage sensitive electronic components and assemblies. Simco-Ion's extensive line of Aerostat ionizers protect production processes such as PCB manufacturing and assembly, surface mount technology, device programming, medical device manufacturing, and testing.
Flat Panel Display
Stringent contamination control standards for flat panel display manufacturing often require the use of mini-environments and complete room ionization systems to isolate sensitive products from ambient particle contamination during fabrication.
In critical, demanding professional analytic applications of lightweight and small materials such as powders and weigh samples, electrostatic charge complicates material handling and sample analysis. In order to improve accuracy, resolution and repeatability control of electrostatic charge is essential.
Simco-Ion offers several products well suited to the demands of analytic environments. These products enhance the process by eliminating the annoyance of material handling while improving acc
Static charges are found in many phases of semiconductor manufacturing -- wafer production, fabrication, packaging, and testing. Controlling static charges is vital because ESD has a significant impact on device yields. Defects caused by electrostatically-attracted foreign matter and ESD events can contribute to manufacturing yield losses. Lock-up of process equipment can result in wafer damage and lost production.
Medical Device Manufacturing
Leading developers of medical device technology strive to enhance and improve the human condition. In this effort the industry understands the significance of product attributes including high reliability and conformance to demands of regulatory and approvals agencies on a worldwide basis. Uncontrolled electrostatic charge in the production of medical electronic devices puts these products at risk of premature field failure. In addition, electronic components are becoming increasingly sensitive.
