Leading the Way in Advanced Materials Solutions

Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment

Semiconductor equipment engineers are faced with challenges of increasing on-wafer performance while managing costs. They continually strive to increase productivity, improve wafer and chip yield, and reduce cost of ownership. Balancing these processes is key to profitable and sustainable semiconductor chip manufacturing.

Achieving this balance involves effectively managing several critical areas including thermal management, EMI shielding, equipment lifetime optimization.

Fralock has excelled at developing and manufacturing custom engineered materials solutions for the semiconductor equipment industry for over 20 years.

Working closely with our customers on design, engineering, and testing, we provide full-service production of engineered interface solutions for your specialized application needs.
