Upgrading robots in semiconductor production

300mm wafer handling robot

To achieve the goal of technological sovereignty, the French semiconductor production sector is committed to introducing innovations to its production line. In addition to locating their factories, companies are also acquiring a more efficient and productive production line.

In order to be more competitive, some of them choose to replace robots in their semiconductor production.

Why replace production robots in the semiconductor industry?

The demand for semiconductors has been steadily increasing in recent years. In the automotive sector, the supply cannot even meet the demand of the industries, resulting in a severe shortage. To better meet these growing needs, authorities and industries are taking a number of measures, such as relocating semiconductor production. The United States, Europe and Japan were the largest suppliers of semiconductors in the 1990s, with a joint market share of 97%. In 2020, production in these three countries unfortunately accounted for just 9% of the market. The decline in production is due to the arrival of China, Taiwan and South Korea in the sector.

In order to reach the production level of yesteryear, European countries have put in place a plan to develop the production of new generation electronic chips. In particular, France is keen to maintain its expertise in the production of electronic chips, with significant investment.

For their part, industries are optimising their production tools by replacing semiconductor production robots. This solution allows them to become more productive and competitive.
