STS is a leader in ion implant refurbishment and elastomer bonding technologies. STS has a full 6,250 sq ft machine shop with complete CNC capability. The STS machine shop is staffed with a full crew of journeyman machinists, with over 135 years of experience among them. Read More

STS has dedicated itself to developing cutting edge elastomeric materials to be used in bonding high technology manufacturing components. We have successfully developed materials that show a wide range of electrical and thermal conductivity; all with a low enough modulus to ensure that any CTE mismatch between the two surface materials will not threaten the integrity of the bonded components or the bond itself.

Under normal operating conditions, ion implanter process wheels are subject to considerable wear, damage and particulate contamination. To ensure optimal performance and yield, these tools require a regimen of scheduled maintenance. At STS, the refurbishment process for these tools include complete disassembly, decontamination, repair, replacement of worn parts and broken components, reassembly and extensive functional testing.

With extensive experience in both implant refurbishment and elastomer bonding STS has continued to evolve the use of elastomer in plasma environments. This has lead to the development of creating specialty molded parts out of variations of our elastomers. These parts (specialty o-rings, plugs and gaskets) have begun to show up in the chambers of major semiconductor manufacturers. Read More
