Job Description


Bachelor or master degree. Background in technical chemistry with proven affinity in physics or vice versa.

Our customer is a fast growing and leading player in the hightech industrial packaging market. In close cooperation with their customers they develop customer specific packaging solutions and distribution processes for hightech products. Their customers work in the semiconductor, electronics, aerospace and medical industry

Their Precision Cleaning operations is responsible for precision cleaning, vacuum / atmospheric bakeout and Residual Gas Analysis (RGA) of machine parts used in the semiconductor and related industry. They are the leading enterprise in contamination control and knowledge in the Netherlands.

The cleaning and measurement processes must be developed to higher cleanliness standards to serve future demands on precision cleanliness. To be successful there must be a deep understanding of chemical and physical behavior of contaminants and oxidation layers at the surface of to be cleaned machine parts.

They are using Residual Gas Analysis (RGA) and other dedicated measuring methods for qualification. The measurements and spectra are checked for contamination levels and when passed released for their customers. The RGA’s are highly sensitive instruments that need constant attention during operation, calibration and maintenance. HQPC also uses temperature ovens for outgassing purposes.
