At ASML, the customer always comes first. With more than 5,000 customer support employees, including service engineers and applications specialists, we work round-the-clock to make sure our systems in our customers’ fabs are running smoothly.
Our customers want to keep the machines in their fabs running 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. A machine that’s ‘down’ can cost customers thousands of euros per minute, so our service engineers work hard to make sure that doesn’t happen. To prevent ‘unscheduled downs’, ASML customer support uses deterministic diagnostics and other predictive methods to optimize maintenance and upgrades together with our customers’ production schedules.
Accelerate your fab performance
We offer tailor-made solutions to continuously improve our customers’ installed base performance in a rapidly changing environment. Our applications specialists work together with our customers to gather information and use it to optimize products according to the customers’ production requirements.
To supply these solutions, we rely on our vast database of best practices and performance benchmark studies, as well as our performance monitoring software that can identify potential productivity deficiencies in the customer fab. The information doesn’t just get lost in a void: We organize on-site knowledge transfer sessions to keep your engineering staff up to date with the latest yield enhancing methodologies and techniques.
Partners in innovation
Our goal is to work not just for also but with our customers, partnering with them to ensure success in terms of performance and process. Our customer support organization is the voice of the customer back into ASML. Customer support shapes and drives both in-field operations as well as alignment and collaboration with customers, so that we can develop products that meet their needs.
Relocations and de-installation support
When a customer needs to relocate a machine, we make sure the process is a smooth one, eliminating inefficiencies and reducing cycle time. We use an easily implementable project approach that includes planning, materials, and engineering support, performed by qualified and skilled install engineers and using ASML standard sequences and procedures. Rental of required tooling and materials is included, without refurbishment or stocking costs. Within the same project, we can also refurbish or upgrade customer systems, and we always guarantee system performance.
At ASML, our goal is to improve the capabilities of not only our own engineers, but the customers’ as well. Our training centers in the Netherlands and Taiwan offer formal learning programs that cover people, processes and products, using various learning methods including instructor-led training, web lectures and hands-on training. These programs provide the right skills, processes and knowledge to troubleshoot and maintain our products at customer sites.
