SolMateS has received an order from Corporate Sector Research and Advance Engineering of Robert Bosch GmbH, Gerlingen for its PiezoFlare 1200 Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) system.
The system is scheduled for delivery in mid 2013.
“We are pleased with this second sale in a short time” commented SolMateS’ CEO Arjen Janssens, “especially as this order comes from a world leading MEMS manufacturer. It illustrates the industrial interest for our deposition technology”.
About the PiezoFlare 1200
The PiezoFlare 1200 is a breakthrough manufacturing technology, a novel technique to physically deposit different composite materials. The PiezoFlare 1200 is a deposition system for thin films on 100, 150 or 200 mm wafers, based on pulsed laser deposition. The technology uses a laser to create a plasma of the material to be deposited, enabling industrial quality deposition of new generation materials. The automated tool offers high yield, customized deposition of various More than Moore materials. This technology is regarded as the first major step in MEMS technology after the introduction of deep reactive Ion etching and backside alignment.
SolMateS is a fast growing and ambitious company with 20 employees, located at Science Park Twente, in Enschede, the Netherlands. As a spin-off of the MESA+ Institute of Nanotechnology, SolMateS has brought pulsed laser deposition from lab scale to production level. SolMateS has already been awarded with several technology and business awards since its launch in 2006.
