As a business of Norton Abrasives, a brand of Saint-Gobain, the worldwide leaders in abrasives, we have the experience and know-how to provide you with state of the art technology for your prime wafer foundry applications, offering a wide range of products, including ID saw blades, fixed abrasive wire sawing wire for wafer slicing and wafer cropping wheels, wafer OD grinding, single side and double side wafer grinding, edge grinding, and notch pin grinding wheels for prime wafer finishing.
The International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors has projected significant improvements in Nano-topology and flatness requirement for prime wafers. We have the expertise across the wide range of wafer sizes to provide solutions using our advanced technology. Our latest generation wheel technology generates ultra-low sub-surface damage and very low surface roughness reducing the amount of final polishing required. This provides the benefits of increasing wafer yield while improving cost of ownership.
Customers routinely send us wafers for us to conduct testing and to make use of our wafer characterization services. We have dedicated application testing facilities in Worcester, MA in North America and in Nordestedt, Hamburg in Germany, offering solutions for your advanced requirements. Our team of experienced application engineers offer you on-site assistance with your process, and our research engineers are continually working on developing the next generation wheel technology.
