IMES personnel possess extensive experience in design management for tool installation packages for multiple clients. The areas of design and management include:
• Dry Etch (Thin Films, Metals, CVD)
• Photo Lithography
• Wet Etch
Responsibilities include coordinating equipment layouts and area functionality with respective process engineers for all areas listed above. Creation of process flow diagrams, piping plans, and section details for space management of tool install infrastructure. Other responsibilities include coordination with multiple contractors and infrastructure design teams to ensure tool installation schedule is maintained. Our management responsibilities include managing a design team for all areas of tool install for 300MM factories.
BIM is the process of using 3D modeling software to produce a digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of a facility.
IMES design personnel are skilled in the use of multiple 3D BIM platforms which includes Autodesk Navisworks, Revit MEP, AutoCAD MEP, and M-Six VEO.
Our expertise allows our team to cross coordinate with other disciplines that work within and outside of our organization. Our BIM coordinators have experience working on the most complex projects.
In conjunction with our BIM coordination capabilities, our designers and engineers utilize the latest in 3D scanning technology. This enables our team to produce coordinated models that illustrate real world conditions.
Working with 3D scans in our BIM models verifies the constructability of our design, and gives the contractor detailed information they need to greatly reduce time spent on cross-discipline coordination.
IMES incorporates Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) into projects to design, validate, and optimize process and mechanical systems. For instance, IMES has completed site airflow models to successfully design ventilation systems for semi-open spaces. We have also used CFD to validate the operation of an HVAC system that was exposed to varying external (wind) loading conditions. Additionally, IMES has applied CFD to process exhaust systems to investigate and visualize airflow inside of ducting in order to optimize duct routing for minimal pressure drop.
3D CAD files are directly imported to CFD to define the geometry of the objects being studied. The volumes that are created by the solids and fluids are then divided into discrete cells used for the meshing. Finally, boundary conditions are defined and the CFD model is completed. These completed models allow our engineers and clients to visualize and predict the behavior of their systems for virtually any scenario.
