Vacuum Chamber Manufacturers Gear Up for Increased Chip Production 

From vehicles, cellular phones and defense systems to gaming consoles, refrigerators and coffeemakers, the ever expanding incorporation of microelectronics has dramatically magnified the demand for semiconductor chips at the heart of every digital device. As a result, there is an acute shortage of such chips, even though more than one trillion of them are manufactured worldwide each year.

However, amid the current crisis in the production of semiconductor chips, timely delivery enabled by advanced machine tool technology can help chipmakers more quickly supply the key components of the devices and machines that influence every aspect of our lives.
