Applications in the semiconductor industry

Applications in the Semiconductor Industry range from rubber seals and components for process equipment used in the fabrication of integrated circuits or semiconductors.

Reduce your TCO with ERIKS clean rooms

ERIKS has its own clean rooms to prevent contamination and "outgassing" of components. In these clean rooms, o-rings and other sealing products are being cleaned according to the right method. The products are made dust-free and optimally packed under stringent procedures and work instructions, for both ERIKS and non-ERIKS products, resulting in considerable time and cost savings.

Solutions for the semiconductor industry

SEMI (Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International) is a pseudo regulatory organisation offering some standards and testing procedures.
