Axcelis Technologies, a subsidiary of Eaton
Corporation, excels at its core business: ion
implantation devices. Chip makers use ion
implanters to insert electrically charged
particles into silicon wafers, changing their
conductive properties. Axcelis' other chip
equipment includes systems for dry strip,
photostabilization, and rapid thermal
processing. The company and SEN, its
Japanese joint venture with Sumitomo, supply
products to 19 of the 20 largest semiconductor
makers in the world. STMicroelectronics,
Motorola, and Texas Instruments collectively
account for nearly 40% of sales. US customers
account for about 85% of sales. Following
Axcelis' planned IPO, Eaton will retain about
80% of the company.
