 Remanufactured Spindles Extend Service Life and Lower
Repair Cost for LAM-SEZ Da Vinci Wet Etch Tools  

Fala Technologies, the only independent thin-section bearing manufacturer in the semiconductor industry, and Sparetech Inc., a distributor of specialty parts, have introduced a high performance remanufactured spindle for use in LAM-SEZ Da Vinci DV34 and DV38 wet etch tools. The rebuilt spindles improve performance over original OEM parts while costing less and having a longer more predictable service life. They utilize high-precision shielded ceramic hybrid bearings packed with a high performance non-fluorinated lubricant. These unique bearings are rated to 16,000 rpm. Used or broken spindles are disassembled, cleaned and rebuilt with new bearings to Fala specifications, which are better than original OEM specs. Refurbished parts are returned in two weeks. Fala remanufactured spindles are warranted for two years.
"Companies that utilize multiple Da Vinci tools can expect to save over $100K per year on spindles," noted Fred Bouchard, sales manager of Sparetech.
