BENEQ Blog - A billion seconds - Stories from the home of ALD

Existing news and defenitely something forother ALD companies to follow - BENEQ Blog - A billion seconds - Stories from the home of ALD! This summer I had a chance to visit BENEQ and I was very much surpised by the size of their factory in Espoo, Finland - it is huge and it is all about ALD!



When you visit our factory in Espoo and enter the clean room area where we keep our 40 ALD machines, one thing you will notice is the constant ticking sound from the conventional batch ALD equipment. Those are the pulses of precursor gases in the equipment chambers ticking. Tick. Tick. Tick.

Combined with the humming background noise of the ventilation system and the vacuum pumps, it is a rather relaxing sound. It is one of the very characteristics that define the atmosphere of the factory floor.
