ALSI becomes ASM Laser Separation International

Laser dicing systems maker Advanced Laser Separation International (ALSI) N.V. of Beuningen, The Netherlands is to continue its existing business (including relationships with key customers, suppliers and other partners) as ASM Laser Separation International (ASM ALSI) B.V. after becoming a subsidiary of ASM Pacific Technology Ltd (ASMPT).

Richard Boulanger will continue as managing director of ASM ALSI, and all key employees of ALSI have expressed their commitment to continue with ASM ALSI, says the firm.

Listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, ASMPT is 40% owned by wafer processing equipment maker ASM International N.V. (ASMI) of Almere, The Netherlands, and is the world’s largest assembly & packaging equipment supplier for the semiconductor and LED industries, as well as the world’s third largest SMT equipment supplier.

ALSI’s laser dicing technology is based on patented multi-beam laser technology. Systems are installed worldwide and are used for the dicing or grooving of LED, RFIC, T&D (transistor and diode) and IC applications.

ASM ALSI says that being a subsidiary of ASMPT group brings the ALSI business both the financial and technological strength that it needs to move to the next phase of expansion and development.

“The multi-beam laser technology developed by ALSI offers customers unparalleled value,” comments ASMPT’s CEO WK Lee. “With the strong sales and service network of ASMPT, we can help to bring unique value to many customers at much faster pace,” he adds.

ALSI introduced multi-beam laser technology and has developed unique processes for dicing gallium arsenide (GaAs), transistors and diodes, and high- and ultra-high-brightness LEDs. It has now introduced the Matrix Grooving Process for the IC market.

“ASMPT’s excellent reputation and global sales and service network will accelerate our market penetration, especially for the grooving market as well as our other established markets,” believes Boulanger. “It will also increase our level of commitment and support to our customers.”
