The Total Cost of Ownership in a semiconductor manufacturing Fab can be greatly impacted by the operational and service approach of the vacuum and abatement equipment fleet. A lack of focus on the system performance or fleet optimisation can increase operational costs, as well as impacting investments on capital equipment.
Our remanufacturing solutions offer a unique opportunity to reduce your Total Cost of Ownership by lowering the initial equipment investment. Edwards remanufactured products are restored to factory specifications, increasing the machine lifetime, and delaying the need for replacement. In addition, a reduction in operational costs can be seen immediately owing to a refresh in efficiency of old or rundown equipment.
Edwards has developed a range of upgrades to increase meantime between service and machine efficiency, lowering your operational costs
Planned maintenance can have a significant impact on your operational costs. Regular maintenance can increase the lifetime of the equipment with less risks of frequent replacements. It can also keep your equipment fleet at the highest cost efficiency by avoiding unnecessary repairs from unexpected down events and additional wear and tear caused by run -to- fail maintenance regimes.
Our Risk Management solutions can have a significant impact on your Total Cost of ownership targets. Our predictive maintenance model will reduce the risks and uncertainty related to machine down events that can lead to wafer scraps. Edwards Risk Management plans include a pay-per-usage option which allows customers to save or invest capital expenditure elsewhere. Operational costs are also predictable for more efficient budgeting.
Input the number of vacuum and equipment unplanned events (crashes) per year into this online value calculator to see how much additional value you can reclaim from improved chamber availability, reduced scrap value, and maintenance costs.
