Ashland Specialty Chemical Co., a division of Ashland Inc., through its Electronic Chemicals Division (ECD) Fab Services business, has formed a one-year alliance with Axcelis Technologies Inc. to provide cleaning and rebuilding services utilizing Axcelis' authorized parts for subassemblies and internal components of ion implantation systems used in semiconductor chip manufacturing.

Ashland's Fab Services unit offers 24/7 servicing for semiconductor tool components. Fab Services also offers expertise in cleaning and rebuilding components involved in the implant, diffusion, etch, photolithography, and thin-film areas of semiconductor manufacturing.

"Outsourcing cleaning activities presents an opportunity for the semiconductor manufacturer to lower their reconditioning costs. Having Ashland-certified technicians perform the sub system re-build ensures that the system will perform within specifications," Rob Mionis, Axcelis senior EVP and general manager of global operations and service solutions said.
