EVG Academy established for customer training
EV Group of St Florian, Austria – a supplier of wafer bonding and lithography equipment for semiconductor, micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) and nanotechnology applications – has established the EVG Academy, a training facility for customers that provides technical training on all classes of EVG equipment as well as on the firm’s CIM Framework software platform in an optimized environment.
Established at the firm’s headquarters, the EVG Academy comprises a new 800m2 facility created in tandem with the Cleanroom V expansion project (completed in July 2020). By attending in-depth, tiered training classes at the EVG Academy, customers can be qualified to perform basic repairs as well as preventative maintenance on equipment without the need to contact customer support, providing greater flexibility for tool maintenance. The new training facility also serves as the education and training hub for EVG’s global organization.
“The EVG Academy was purpose-built with the goal to enable in-depth customer training on all EVG platforms utilizing the latest equipment and technologies, including our most advanced fully automated high-volume manufacturing (HVM) tools,” says Helmut Pfeifer, VP of customer support. “EVG has made significant investments in updating our training infrastructure, and we are extremely proud of this world-class facility, which sets new standards for knowledge transfer in our industry,” he claims. “The new EVG Academy will greatly enhance the learning experience for both our customers and our international customer support teams.”
The EVG Academy builds on the firm’s existing training facilities at its headquarters, doubling the amount of training space and technical trainers. It includes eight individual training areas – one for each major class of EVG equipment – as well as four classrooms and a dedicated workshop area for electrical and mechanical training. Due to the additional floorspace, the EVG Academy has also expanded the number and type of tools available for training, including the firm’s fully automated HVM platforms, such as the GEMINI FB automated production wafer bonding system with SmartView NT3 bond aligner and the BONDSCALE automated production fusion bonding system.
The EVG Academy is now open for training. Customers interested in learning more can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
