Edwards Limited, one of the world's largest manufacturers of integrated vacuum and abatement solutions, is now part of the newly-formed Vacuum Technique business area of Atlas Copco. Mike Allison has been appointed President of the Semiconductor division and Paul Rawlings is now President, Semiconductor Service division. Both Mike and Paul, report to Geert Follens, President of the Vacuum Technique business area within Atlas Copco.
"Mike Allison is a passionate business leader with deep and global experience from the semiconductor industry," said Geert Follens, President of Vacuum Technique. "His proven track record in delivering strong business results through high-value solutions for our customers made him the best candidate for the position."
Follens adds, "Paul Rawlings has a long history in the semiconductor industry with established relationships with key customers around the globe. He was an obvious choice to head our Semiconductor Service division. We wish them both great success."
The new Vacuum Technique organization comprises 13 percent of Atlas Copco Group's total business, and includes the Semiconductor, Semiconductor Service, Industrial Vacuum, High Vacuum and Vacuum Technique Service divisions. Major brands within the Semiconductor division include: Edwards and CSK.

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
