Founded in 1909, the AESF has 78 Branches and more than 7,000 members, worldwide. The Society is regarded and respected as the foremost finishing authority in the world.

European Metallizers Association

The European Metallizers Association (EMA) represents companies which apply Vacuum Web Coating Technology.
The objective of the association, which was founded in 1985, is to protect the common interests of the metallizers, in particular in relation with the development of new areas of application, the establishment of statistics, standardization and public relations for the indutry, all commercial or profit-making activities being excluded.

France - Joint Equipment Manufacturers Initiative JEMI

JEMI- France (Joint Equipment Manufacturers Initiative) is a non profit association of the French manufacturers and suppliers of equipment, materials and services to the worldwide Semiconductor Industry. Use the JEMI- France site as your source of information covering the products and services for the semiconductor industry.

International Disk Drive Equipment and Materials Association

Trade association for the data storage industry, drive manufacturers and suppliers of components, equipment, materials, and services. The IDEMA mission is to promote the international data storage industry by establishing communication channels for all its participants, thereby facilitating cooperation, progress and growth. IDEMA meets this challenge, in part, by providing a wide range of educational programs and networking events, including dinner meetings, the international DISKCON tradeshows, and standards development.

International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique, and Applications

IUVSTA is a Union of national member societies whose role is to stimulate international collaboration in the fields of vacuum science, techniques and applications and related multi-disciplinary topics including solid-vacuum and other interfaces.

IUVSTA represents nearly 15,000 physicists, chemists, materials scientists, engineers,
and technologists who are linked through their common use of vacuum.

They are active in basic and applied research, development, manufacturing, sales, and education.

Japan - Semiconductor Equipment Association

Semiconductor Equipment Association of Japan (SEAJ), founded in March 1985, promoted by the major semiconductor equipment manufacturers, is a nationwide organization of semiconductor manufacturing and liquid crystal display (LCD) panel manufacturing equipment manufacturers and related equipment manufacturers.

Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI)

Representing more than 2,400 member companies, Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI) is the trade association serving the global semiconductor equipment, materials and flat panel display industries. Since its inception in 1970, SEMI has played an increasingly vital role in industry expansion, visibility, and representation.
