Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Merry Christmas

As the year draws to an end, we look back to reflect on our experiences in 2016. It was a very successful year for scia Systems. We were not only pleased to receive an award from a major customer, but also to welcome numerous new employees to our team.  With the addition of a demo ion beam deposition system and resulting customer system orders, scia Systems succeeded in further expanding its position in the market for high precision optical coatings.

We would like to thank our customers, partners, suppliers and especially our employees, who altogether have contributed to the success of scia Systems with their trust and commitment.

scia Systems wishes you all and your families a relaxing holiday season and a Happy New Year.

We look forward to continuing working together with you in 2017!

Fraunhofer FEP orders a scia Magna 200

Fraunhofer FEP

The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP from Dresden works on the development of innovative production technologies for surfaceprocessing. With the ordered scia Magna 200 aluminum nitride and silicon oxide should be deposited for piezoelectric and passivation layers on SAW/BAW components.

The scia Magna 200 combines the advanced system design of scia Systems with the unique Double Ring Magnetron sputter source DRM 400 from Fraunhofer FEP. This architecture provides a very high homogeneity of coatings at impressively high deposition rates.
