|TADERIS – Here are the Benefits |
SINGULUS designs, manufactures and markets PVD and other production equipment for Magnetic Storage, Semiconductors, and other market segments. Singulus s new deposition tool TADERIS was designed in 2007 for high deposition rates of thick and thin alumina films, a core technology in the magnetic storage industry.
TADERIS delivers superior and very competitive performance:
From 2006 to 2007, the shipment of HGA’s (Head Gimbal Assemblies, that carry the heads) grew by 175.5 % up to 1,669.6 million units. Along with the transition from GMR to AT/PMR hard disk drive technology, new deposition techniques have been developed and are under development.
At present, companies in this market are switching their wafer production from 6" (150 mm) to 8" (200 mm) to achieve further cost reductions. These factors result in a strong demand for new and more capable production equipment.
