SAN JOSE, Calif. - Honeywell Electronic Materials is expanding its production capacity for 300-mm sputtering targets and related metals.
Honeywell (Morris Township, N.J.) is increasing targets production capacity, as well as its internal capacity to produce the copper, cobalt, titanium, and tungsten raw materials used to make the targets.
''To address this accelerating demand, Honeywell's investments in process optimization, resource expansion and new equipment will, by the end of this year, increase raw material capacity for copper by 110 percent, cobalt by 100 percent and titanium by 35 percent, and increase 300-mm sputtering target capacity by more than 90 percent. The company is also planning to double production of tungsten next year to meet growing application demand in advanced 300-mm devices,'' according to the company.
The company produces targets at its Spokane, Wash., and Jincheon, Korea, facilities and metals at its Spokane; Golden, Co.; and Fombell, Pa. facilities. Honeywell Electronic Materials is part of Honeywell Specialty Materials.
