Upgrades to existing equipment deliver several advantages when compared to the purchase of new equipment. The most pronounced advantages include lower installation costs and reduced production downtime. Benefits to upgrading also include little to no new training and little to no new stock to keep in stores.
Here are some reasons to consider upgrading:
First, you should contact your etch and deposition partner to see what updates are currently available and if they meet your production line needs. However, if your provider does not have upgrades that accomplish the task, it may be time to find a new partner. Finding the right equipment partner is essential in meeting the demands of cost, output, and quality.
