Measurement Site Surveys

Independent site surveys that meet the needs of our clients

 

Most site survey providers use surveys as a mechanism to sell products or gain access to customers.  At VEC, the core of our business is providing the highest quality, independent site surveys that meet the needs of our clients.  We work directly with the end user and provide quality data to ensure our clients can make informed decisions. Benefits of a VEC site survey include:

  • Vibration, AC EMI, DC EMI, and Acoustics surveys using state of the art, calibrated measurement devices
  • Flexibility to match the specific units of any OEM manufacturer and compare results to OEM provided specifications
  • Informed recommendations for bringing a site into specification
  • Complete building surveys that enable fact-based decision making for tool placement with the ability to match various specifications and units for multiple OEMs and tools
  • Comprehensive survey report with recommendations to optimize tool performance

Stiffness Testing

Testing for cutting-edge semiconductor and microscopy tools

 

To build semiconductor components that are measured in nanometers and generate images with angstrom level resolution, floor and pedestal stiffness is critical.  Semiconductor manufacturers must generate fast, reproducible results using complex production and inspection tools.  These tools require stiff floors and pedestals to maintain tight tolerances.  In microscopy, high performing TEMs and SEMs require rigid floor vibration specifications, and piezoelectric isolators are often employed.  These isolators require an extremely stiff floor to optimize performance.  To meet the needs of the semiconductor and microscopy space, VEC is pleased to offer the following stiffness testing services:

  • Stiffness testing of semiconductor production tool pedestals or floors
  • Stiffness testing of floors for piezoelectric isolators used on cutting edge microscopy tools
  • Full written reports of the pedestal or floor performance tailored to OEM and customer requirements
