Process Engineering Group is responsible for all the processes used in the recording head manufacturing. This covers a wide range of disciplines and includes Photolithography, Vacuum Deposition and Etch, Electro-plating, material and process characterisation techniques, as well as advanced data analytics. We welcome graduates from all relevant Science and Engineering degrees
About the role - you will:
You will be working with technical experts within our engineering team to deliver world-leading technology and process capability for wafer manufacturing and you will receive extensive training in key aspects of wafer technology, including yield, vacuum technology, photolithography, electroplating, and various metrology techniques. This will also include manufacturing systems and process control techniques.
Take ownership of unit manufacturing operations to include maintenance, optimization and development of the processes surrounding it - supported by your manager and colleagues.
- Setting up of control processes and factory control systems.
- Implement and maintain the necessary controls to achieve consistently stable processes.
- Perform data analysis, responding to yield issues and delivering continuous improvement and cost saving projects.
- Work with our sister plant in Minneapolis to ensure process congruency is consistent
- ensuring measurements are optimised to protect downstream yields, being fully aware of how individual processes can affect downstream parameters.
- Monitor critical process parameters and reacting to out-of-control situations.
- Researching, Developing and Innovating new and current processes to drive sigma improvement.
- Support shift engineering with necessary support as required.
- Project Management will be a significant part of your role
- Characterising manufacturing processes to deliver the best recording head performance
- Evaluating new materials for enhanced process improvement or cost improvement and working with vendors for new tool qualification to determine new optimized solutions.
