Abstract
The secondary equipment market, served by OEM's, turnkey companies, refurbishment houses, brokers or directly from the fab (as is), is not only growing, it's getting to its next level of performance. Depending on what kind of electronic devices are manufactured by secondary equipment, the end-user has to consider critical functions like automation (control systems), CE compliance, critical components (like power supplies, pumps and valves - to name but a few) and their life time. The transition of mature device manufacturing to support new applications and processes makes it necessary to cooperate with critical component suppliers. The formula to success is to manage issues like speed, quality, reliability and risk versus cost. As such, identifying the right product experts and component specialists is key when it comes to spare parts, product maintenance and repair, product upgrade and continuous improvement.
This presentation will discuss the requirements towards component suppliers in the field of genuine spare parts, product substitutes, controlled phase-out processes, product upgrades and enhancements, especially customization. On top of that, the focus is on bringing used equipment to the next performance level by utilizing the product and technology roadmap from original component suppliers, finally leading into improved tool performance, optimized total cost of ownership, higher particle performance and overall yield. Examples of improved tool performance will be demonstrated, backed by respective data.

Abstract
The secondary equipment market has become an established option in today's manufacturing environment, adding capacity or technical capability. Over the last five years OEM's like TEL have developed their range of secondary products, giving FAB's OEM quality solutions at an affordable level of investment. Many companies specialise in this marketplace, however, it is principally the OEM's who can provide the broad-based solutions from a global network which meet today's customer needs.
This presentation will articulate the value propositions that OEM's offer as well as discuss how we in TEL can offer innovative "hybrid" manufacturing solutions allowing TEL CUE (Certified Used Equipment) to remain commercially attractive as well as supporting new process integration on to mature platforms. Additionally, this presentation will discuss how TEL can provide affordability programs enabling FABs to control their OPEX expenditure.
