Case Study: Gas Distribution Plates (GDPs)

One of the world’s top producers of semiconductor process equipment was unable to produce sufficiently precise holes in Gas Distribution Plates (GDPs).

They believed EDM technology uncapped the next level of innovation, but were unhappy with their chosen EDM equipment providers and approached Winbro as a global leader in EDM to develop a better solution.

Winbro ran extensive development resulting in enhancements to their machine, software and process knowhow.

Following a rapid learning curve, Winbro matched and surpassed incumbent capability within 12 months, producing smaller holes with better geometry, reduced depth of damage, improved morphology and repeatability whilst reducing cycle time by 37% and providing a higher yield at >98%.

Trials at WAM demonstrated Manufacturing Capability Readiness (MCR), de-risking investment in Winbro technology and enabling the customer to take a strategic decision to purchase multiple Winbro EDM machines, complete with automation.
