LEONI’s low outgassing cables are the perfect solution for Semiconductor applications

LEONI spent several years working with a North American market leader in the semiconductor industry, to develop a product design that would be exactly what they needed for their application. Previously the customer was using a direct competitor of LEONI in their robot. They were looking for a flex cable that could withstand north of 20 Million flex cycles. However the relationship between the customer and their previous supplier had been lost, due to long lead times, which was impacting the manufacturer negatively.

It was important that LEONI could provide a solution that did not have any particulation as this cable would be used in a cleanroom application. Experience with excess particulates splintering off the current solution was detrimental to the end application.
After the customers key Engineers saw a demonstration of LEONI’s High Performance Flex cable in action during a tradeshow, it was clear that LEONI could provide them with the solution they were looking for, for their next generation wafer polishing machines.

The LEONI engineering team provided excellent technical support, working through all of the design challenges to ensure we would provide them with the perfect solution! With a few additional customer visits and discussions, they were confident that LEONI could support them with their next generation robot build. LEONI is working to develop a fast prototyping solution to allow for quick evaluation of the solution including elimination of the particulation issue they were experiencing with the current solution.

We continue to work closely with the customer while they develop their application and look forward to supporting them with the next generation of their application!
