EyelitEyelit, Inc. has shipped one of its integrated manufacturing execution software (MES) suites to materials technology company Umicore for production of germanium wafers at its Olen, Belgium-based Electro-Optic Materials Business Unit. The company intends to roll out the system to Quapaw, Oklahoma in the second half of this year.

Together with its distribution partner SYSTEMA GmbH, Eyelit has shipped its MES suites to CaliSolar, Nemotek and SiCrystal GmbH since December 2008. The companies announced a partnership in June 2008 that stated that SYSTEMA would provide local European support, consulting services and be a distributor of Eyelit's innovative product suite. Eyelit’s suite provides integration to SAP as well as a scalable solution for equipment management and product traceability, from raw material feedstock through to germanium ingot growth and wafer production.
"We are continuing to gain MES market share with the help of partners like SYSTEMA”, commented Dan Estrada, Eyelit’s Vice President of Sales and Business Development. “We’ve enjoyed a very successful relationship with SYSTEMA, found a niche in the semiconductor ingot growth area, recently added three new customers in the last five months. Whether it is concentrator solar cells (CPV), space solar cells, solar cells (PV), high-brightness LEDs or other various semiconductor applications, the manufacturing steps can all be modeled and managed within Eyelit’s solution”.
