As a further step on the road to "total packaging solutions", Kulicke & Soffa Industries, and DATACON Semiconductor Equipment GmbH, recently opened a joint technology center. The new European Technology Center, located near DATACON's production site in Radfeld, Tyrol, offers European manufacturers easy access to a concentration of innovative technologies unique in the industry.
Under an agreement signed in Autumn 1999, DATACON and Kulicke & Soffa have strengthened their successful cooperation. DATACON became sole agent for K&S wire-bonders and wafer saws for Germany, Austria and The Netherlands; responsibilities have recently been expanded to include Denmark and Hungary. Kulicke & Soffa has been responsible for sales of DATACON die-bonders outside Europe since April 1998.
