Flagship Project

Standardized Supply Systems for Process Gases in the High-tech Semiconductor Industry


The microelectronics, semiconductor, and photovoltaic industries have been acclaimed as an engine for global technological advancement for years now, which is particularly true in Saxony. The continuous growth of these industries provides an important contribution to solving the national and global challenges of our time, such as the “Energiewende” (energy transition).

Specialized gases, which are used for etching, doping, cleaning, or as a source of silicon, are extremely important raw materials; they must be pure and of high quality, and their supply must be safe and reliable.

Special requirements

Nearly all of the more than 30 process gases used in the modern semiconductor industry are toxic, highly flammable, or are considered harmful to the climate. In order to meet the high requirements for plant safety and environmental protection, we use fail-safe systems as necessary.

F&S as a partner

On behalf of our longtime partner, Linde Electronics GmbH & Co. KG, F&S develops and delivers standardized automation solutions based on scalable industrial control systems.

Numerous such systems for the bulk and on-site supply of process gases are currently in use by various renowned customers in the chemical and process industries, where they ensure reliable production processes while safely and effectively working with critical gases.

In addition to fully automated supply systems and a clearly structured visualization of the processes, the focus is also on customer-specific solutions for remote monitoring.
