Entegris’ mission is to offer unique performance and yield enhancing process solutions for the most advanced manufacturing environments worldwide.

Our primary market is the semiconductor industry. Our business model is centered around close collaboration with industry technology leaders as we develop advanced materials and contamination control solutions to increase next-generation semiconductors’ performance, cost and reliability.

As the industry continues to test the limits of Moore’s law, learning cycles in the industry ecosystem are shorter, R&D costs are rising and the process windows for high volume manufacturing have become tighter. The need for speed and greater rigor in our innovation and manufacturing processes required a major shift. We’ll describe our journey to define and establish these best-in-class practices and how it impacted our systems, culture and everything in between.

In this presentation, we will describe the journey Micron took towards our vision of automation for the back end (BE) assembly and test manufacturing departments. To achieve our vision, we determined we needed to enhance several factory system components with the ultimate goal of achieving auto delivery and auto run environment. The Recipe Management (RM) was the one critical factory system that needed to be improved and aligned. We will discuss the process we took toward BE automation with the selection of the RM system, the challenges we faced, the benefits achieved from this effort, and enhancement ideas to improve the Recipe Management System (RMS).

We will present uses cases of how LineWorks SPACE eCAP and DB Explorer enable extensive automated troubleshooting and subsequent disposition and closure of eCAP instances. We describe how DB Explorer is being used to query manufacturing databases for fault detection, R2R, and measurement systems to perform basic investigations upon OOC trigger. Any abnormalities thus found will trigger further human interventions. We also use DB Explorer to read off the engineering database which houses our automated diagnostic results and thus provides our engineers with deep dive investigations on process or tool drifts to perform further troubleshooting and dispositions.

SARA stands for Standard Automated Replenishment Application. A successful story that we have built together, Continental Automotive and camLine. This is the solution that we intend to release over 70 locations all over the world. And that we consider as a first brick for our Industry 4.0 in the area of logistics and MES (Manufacturing Execution System) that will grow with fleet management, geolocalization, integrated storage, and transportation system. SARA is a fully integrated solution for material replenishment that completes the camLine portfolio. The main functionality of SARA is an automated call to a warehouse for material to be delivered to the production lines. Calls are based on material consumption for current and future productions. It leads to a reduction of material handling effort and reduction of used space.

As one of the world leading automotive suppliers, ZF Friedrichshafen AG put a focus on the use of fiber-reinforced plastics to reduce the overall weight of vehicles. Hydrophilic polymers such as Polyamides are challenging the fields of design, qualification, and testing. Depending on the atmospheric environment, water can be absorbed or emitted by components which are made of polyamide and in consequence of this, a change of geometric dimensions and mechanical properties is a result. Furthermore, other parameters such as test frequency, transient sample temperature. And mean stresses have to be carefully considered in the experimental procedure and the evaluation. The 2-dimensional S-N-curves are often not constructive and there must be an n-dimensional approach. For this purpose, a new promising approach has been developed in the Central R&D of ZF Friedrichshafen AG, which allows a more precise view of the lifetime behavior of glass fiber reinforced polyamide in a multidimensional space.

Eisen-Schmid GmbH & Co. KG in Hausach is one of the leading medium-sized steel trading companies in the south of Germany. The range of supplied products includes quality steel, bar and bright steel, special steels, stainless steel, tubes and sheets. Their customers come from different industries. The construction industry is just as important as the automotive industry.

In order to meet the increasing demands of their customers about process and quality data and to increase the plant efficiency, the management decided in 2017 to use InFrame Synapse MES for the sawing and chamfering production area. As a major challenge, older carbide circular sawing machines from different manufacturers without common equipment interfaces had to be linked to the MES. The solution was implemented by using IoT devices on production-relevant switching contacts of the saws. OEE characteristic values can now be displayed on the InFrame Synapse MES dashboards at the manufacturing floor, and time-based production performance reports are generated for the operations management.

Cornerstone User Group Meeting
13:45 – 14:15

Heidelberger Druckmaschinen develops digital printing machines based on the inkjet principle. The distance between the substrate to be printed and the print heads must not be below a critical level, as otherwise the print heads may be damaged. The distance is going to be monitored by an optical sensor. By default, the sensor raw data is compressed to a distance measure that has an unsatisfactory big variation for the intended application. By using additional statistics from the raw data and multivariate methods in Cornerstone, the potential to improve the quality of the sensor for sufficient measuring process capability is estimated.

Cornerstone User Group Meeting
15:15 – 15:45

Cornerstone’s strength is the support of the design engineer to set up an experimental design and to stay focused on the engineering application without the need to be an expert in statistics. The talk shows that this even applies to the solution of complicated and non-standard situations by giving a list of use cases derived from different industries. These cases do not fit into the standard DoE framework or need access to the internal, not that obvious structure of Cornerstone experiments. Most of the examples shown are accompanied by whitepapers giving details of the technical solutions.
