New and Used Semiconductor, Solar Photovoltaic, and Data Storage Equipment

Whether your substrates are wafers, flat panels, printed circuit boards, or hard disks,SemiWest is the acknowledged leader in the refurbished equipment market.SemiWest buys and sells used equipment. We can deliver low cost equipment for many manufacturing applications. The advantage of a refurbished system is that you can save over 50% on the cost of a complete new system. A refurbished tool can last many years once we refurbish it and certify its performance. We offer training and support on all the systems we sell as well.

Our experienced staff recognizes that management and disposal of productive and surplus assets is always unique - there is no off-the-shelf solution. Because each situation has its own specific requirements, SemiWest offers a range of asset disposal, valuation, corporate asset management, and business brokerage services tailored and staffed to achieve optimum results.

SemiWest focuses on developing long term relationships with small and large global corporations. The company combines traditional asset sales experience with innovative eCommerce technology and advanced direct marketing to service the needs of multi-national corporations, insolvency practitioners, dealers and asset based lenders around the world.

Process Materials and Consumables for the Semiconductor, Photovoltaic (Solar), and Data Storage Industries, including an Industry Leader in the Precious Metals Refining of Pt and Ru Components

SemiWest offers the companies they represent with value added fulltime service and support. The products our principals supply to our customers are qualified and high volume manufacturing for some of the largest companies in the world.


Low Cost, High Quality Sputter Targets, Backing Plates, Bonding and Evaporative Materials for the Data Storage, Semiconductor and Photovoltaic Industries

Soft Underlayer for Hard Disks, Rotatables for Solar, and High Purity for Semiconductor


Ceramic and Metal Targets for Semiconductor, Magnetic Recording Disk and Heads, and Photovoltaics: 

Powder Metallurgy Capabilities: Vacuum Hot Press (VHP) and Hot Isostatic Press (HIP) are both available to ensure our product made from powder metallurgy method have the highest density. State-of-the-art powder grinding and mixing equipment ensure better particle distrubition and hence more uniform product

Thermal Mechanical Process (TMP) Capabilities: Hydraulic forge press, rolling mill and heat treatment furnaces are all in house to enusre our sputtering target achieving fine and uniform grain sizes and better sputtering performances for our customers.

Melting Capabilities: Vacuum Induction Melting (VIM) furnaces ranging from 1Kg for precious metals to 250Kg capacity for large volume produciton.





Dupont Logo
DuPont™ Vertrel® specialty fluids are a family of hydrofluorocarbon-based fluids that offer the following:

  • fast drying; non-flammable; chemical and thermally stable; safe to use
  • superior solvency; designed to clean a wide range of soils; excellent carrier fluid for fluorolubricants, silicone lubricants and adhesives
  • compatible with a broad range of materials, metals, plastics, and elastomers
  • ideal replacement for ozone-depleting solvents such as CFCs and HCFCs as well as high global warming solvents such as perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and perfluoropolyethers (PFPEs)
significantly safer choice vs. toxic solvents like TCE, MeCl and nPB
