E.E: What are the main areas of activity of the company?

R.P: Felcon Wet Processing

The semiconductor industry relies heavily on wet processing products and equipment to carry out essential manufacturing steps such as cleaning, etching, and developing photoresist layers. These processes require precise control of temperature, concentration, and agitation using liquid chemicals to achieve the desired results, which ultimately contribute to the production of high-quality electronic devices.

The key wet processing equipment used in the industry include wet benches, chemical baths, spin processors, and rinse systems.

Felcon equipment offers a dedicated work area for manual, semi-automated, or automated wet processing, providing a clean and controlled environment. Chemical baths are used for immersion processes, such as etching or cleaning, where the substrate is submerged in a specific chemical solution.

At Felcon, wet processing equipment is manufactured using high-quality white fire retarding polypropylene or FM Approved Thermoplastics for acid and Inorganic based processes, and 304/316-grade stainless steel for Organic solvent-based processes. All materials are carefully selected to ensure suitability for use in the most demanding conditions and are suitable for all Clean Room applications.

Felcon wet processing equipment is designed to be compatible with all types of cleanrooms and can also incorporate Laminar Air Flow with HEPA/ULPA filters.

E.E: What’s the news about new products/services?

R.P: Adjusting Wet Processing Equipment for Wheelchair Users.

In the world of laboratory and semiconductors, ensuring accessibility for all users, including those with disabilities, is of paramount importance for Felcon Limited. One area where this is particularly relevant is in the adjustment of wet processing equipment for wheelchair users.

Wet processing equipment is commonly used in various industries, including semiconductor manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, and food processing. These benches often involve the use of harmful chemicals in a controlled environment, and their operation can be complex. For wheelchair users, certain modifications can make these machines more accessible and easier to use.

Height Adjustments: The first consideration is the height of the equipment. It should be at a level that is easily reachable from a wheelchair. 

Control Placement: The controls of the equipment should be positioned in a way that they can be easily operated from a seated position. 

Safety Measures: Safety is another crucial aspect. 

User Manuals: User manuals should be provided in formats that are accessible to all.

By making these adjustments, Felcon Limited can ensure that wet processing equipment is accessible to all users, promoting inclusivity and diversity in the workplace. After all, everyone should have the opportunity to contribute their skills and talents, regardless of physical ability.
