SemiGen Inc. has announced the grand opening of their new RF Supply Center and is accepting online orders for immediate shipment of low volumes of popular epoxies, adhesive films, bonding tools, gold wire and other supplies used in die attach, substrate attach, chip bonding, assembly, screen printing, and surface mounting of microwave modules and components.
The center is fully stocked and located adjacent to the SemiGen manufacturing center. Products include electrically insulating and conductive pastes and films from Ablestik and Epoxy Technology, glob tops, damming material and encapsulants from Hysol, and gold wire, gold ribbon, and silicon-aluminum wire from Semiconductor Packaging Materials. Bonding tools include tungsten wire, unplugging probes, ball bond capillaries, waffle tacking tools, and a variety of wire and ribbon wedge tools from Gaiser/Coorstek. Custom laser cut epoxy preforms from Laser Services are also available.
No minimum order is required at SemiGen, saving consumers from traditionally long lead times and higher minimum orders when they buy directly from manufacturers. Free shipping is offered for gold wire, ribbon and bonding tools.
The launch of the RF Supply Center is in direct response to customer requests for quick delivery of their most commonly used supplies in their own RF/Microwave assembly as well to supply kits on the SemiGen manufacturing floor for turnkey build-to-print services.
“Customers will now be able to avoid long lead times and high minimum orders like they encounter when buying directly from the manufacturer. And with just-in-time delivery, they won’t have to worry about the risk of scrapping expired material,” said Michelle Richards, Director of the SemiGen RF Supply Center. Michelle is a respected leader in her field and is a bonding supply expert.
“Adding an RF Supply Center right into our facility completes the puzzle for our customers,” said Jim Morgan, president of SemiGen. “Having key supplies and components on-hand for just-in-time delivery to their floor or ours avoids a common stumbling block in meeting deadlines.”
