In booth #6073 at SEMICON West in San Francisco (10-12 July), Applied Energy Systems (AES) of Malvern, PA, USA – which provides high- and ultra-high-purity gas delivery systems, services and solutions (including design, manufacturing, testing, installation and field services) – is showcasing Industry 4.0-ready control technology for its SEMI-GAS ultra-high-purity gas delivery systems.

“With so much discussion in the semiconductor industry centered around Industry 4.0 techniques and how they can be adopted to transform manufacturing processes, we felt it was the perfect time to highlight our control technology,” says general manager Jim Murphy. “These controllers are what allow our SEMI-GAS systems to interface with each other, as well as with other machines and facility management systems used across the fab, to share system performance data and enable the interconnectivity that drives Industry 4.0 efficiencies.”

AES will have three of its SEMI-GAS GigaGuard Controllers on display at its booth, including the GSM and GSM-V Gas Safety Monitor Controllers, which are used to manage the continuous, safe delivery of process gases, and the programmable logic controller (PLC), which can be programmed to monitor customer-specific inputs and perform automatic safety functions and switchover related to ultra-high-purity process gas delivery. All of AES’ GigaGuard Controllers are engineered for use in advanced semiconductor, electronics and high-tech manufacturing environments, and conform to SEMI S2 standards. Continuous data collection and remote system monitoring capabilities make them SCADA-ready and able to provide fab operators with instantaneous insights into system performance in order to increase production uptime. Additionally, the controllers are also Industry 4.0 compatible and can be easily integrated with other systems used to monitor and manage production processes.

“Our GigaGuard Control Technology is optimized to support smart manufacturing in fabs, giving operators the control to maintain system efficiency, the data to facilitate uninterrupted production, and the communications link needed to ensure operations involving gas delivery are seamlessly integrated within the larger production process,” says Murphy.
