About Motion

The Motion department within the Twinscan plant is responsible for manufacturing all critical linear actuators for all ASML platforms. Each machine contains dozens of actuators, at the wafer stage location. The wafer stage is where the main moving parts (actuators) of the lithography machine come together; you can think of it as the mechanical “heart” of the system. In an ASML lithography machine, the stage moves two wafer stages simultaneously, each containing a silicon wafer. While one wafer is exposed, the position of the other wafer is measured by the machine’s metrology sensors. Without these actuators, therefore, the machine would not work, this makes Department Motion a major and indispensable player within ASML.

Contribute to the creation of complex linear actuators in Motion’s dynamic, high-tech development and production environment, indispensable in the world of ASML. Are you ready!

Ormit Talent & ASML alumni

When I was studying I did not give much thought to where I would best fit as a professional in the corporate world. The Ormit Talent & ASML traineeship allowed me to explore my potential work identities in three unique ways. Firstly, I got to explore different departments at ASML; from finance and tax to project management. Secondly, fellow trainees pushed me outside of my comfort zone and helped me discover things about myself that I did not know. Last but not the least, through challenging but rewarding discussions with my leadership coach, I gained awareness about my strengths and weaknesses. For a person with a mathematics background, it was a surprise to find out that I excelled in the intersection between people and content. This traineeship helped me realize the importance of reflection and personal development in my leadership journey.
