COMPLETE RELOCATION PROJECTS ON TIME, TO SPEC AND WITHIN BUDGET
Factory Transition Services (FTS) is a flexible, modular solution for relocating Applied tools, based on Applied’s deep tool knowledge, experience with the deinstallation and reinstallation of new systems, and specialized service expertise. The service is designed to manage and implement relocations of customer-owned tools so projects are completed on schedule, at a predictable cost, within specification, and with the flexibility and customization required to meet a customer’s specific needs.
The value of FTS increases when a large number of tools are involved because the job of moving them becomes much more complex. The service is particularly vital for relocation projects that involve high levels of customer investment and where minimizing risk is critical. These situations include—
- When tools are relocating to a greenfield fab where the support infrastructure is not fully in place
- When the relocated tools will be used to meet an inflection in the customer’s business such as a node change in the receiving fab
- When the fab layout must be reconfigured to accommodate new tools
