Seong-ha Park, CEO of SK Inc. C&C today announced that SK Inc. C&C has signed a partnership agreement with BriteLab, which specializes in automated material handling systems in the United States for the joint development of high tech global manufacturing.
BriteLab, Inc., located at San jose, california, is the leading AMHS semiconductor company in United States.
Current customers for its AMHS installation bases include Texas Instruments (TI), NXP Semiconductors, On-Semi, Global Foundry, ST Micro, TSMC, SSMC, and UMC. BriteLab currently has 24 global 200mm and 300mm foundry customers.
The agreement between SK Inc. C&C and BriteLab aims to promote the expansion of the high-tech manufacturing business based on Britelab’s AMHS platform. By combining the multiple manufacturing software solutions of SK Inc. C&C, the joint partnership is expected to deliver the best smart manufacturing platforms and solutions that will be successfully implemented in the manufacturing industry.
BriteLab’s AMHS offers an overhead hoist (OHT) system using high-tech factory robotic systems using sophisticated robots from the ceiling and floor of production lines. Robots are autonomous vehicles managed and controlled by software to support fast and precise automation of the production of high-tech materials in factories.
Under the agreement, the two companies established a Joint Working Group (JWG) using BriteLab’s AMHS commercialization to manufacture high-tech solutions that meet customer demands.

It is widely used in the field of ESG (Environment Social Governance), such as quality control (QA) work which eliminates the defects of parts and finished products throughout the production process as well as the application in the production. water quality management. By collecting images created using cameras or CCTV and analyzing the data, SmartVision can quickly perform highly accurate inspection tasks that previously required operators to use separate and expensive quality equipment, which can result in poor inspection, product identification and dimensional measurements.
The two companies are also exploring high-tech manufacturing activities for BriteLab’s current customer installation base outside of the semiconductor business as BriteLab provides contract manufacturing (CM) and contract engineering services. (EC) in the United States. BriteLab provides production robotics and automation platforms in autonomous vehicles and robots, factory automation robots, data center surveillance robots, intelligent machines and autonomous drones. With the CM and CE activities of BriteLab and in collaboration with C&C Solutions of SK Inc., the companies plan to offer a high-tech digital manufacturing service based on a digital platform in connection with its customers with the signing of the partnership agreement. “By combining BritetLab’s AMHS-based manufacturing logistics capabilities and SK Inc.
