Electric motors are a hidden, but integral technology that powers equipment used in many semiconductor manufacturing processes. Vacuum and pumping applications, heating processes, fabrication lines and clean rooms all rely on motors to produce the industry’s 1 trillion plus semiconductor units each year, yet many manufacturers rely on conventional motors designed 100 years ago that are heavy, noisy and inefficient.
As the industry works to reduce energy consumption to support sustainability goals and ESG initiatives, semiconductor manufacturers are seeking motors that can cut operating costs, while reducing carbon emissions. Smaller, lighter, quieter, highly-efficient motors that leverage variable speed drives, can reduce energy usage in manufacturing and contribute to more efficient operations while featuring lower cost and simpler set-up and maintenance.
