New Application Note: Deposition of Nano Anti-Wear Coatings for Precision Micro Cutting Tools

The miniaturization of components is an unbroken trend in many industrial sectors, such as medical technology, automotive engineering, aerospace, tool and mold manufacturing as well as microelectronics. A major cost factor in the production of these components is the limited lifespan of the tools due to high wear. The utilization of dual ion beam sputtering for the deposition of nano wear resistant coatings has proven to be a pioneering solution for this.

Ion Beam Technology for Wafer Works

We are pleased to announce that Wafer Works and scia Systems formed a partnership to achieve further production efficiency and ensure consistently high product quality.

Being one of the world's top ten suppliers of semiconductor wafer materials, Wafer Works is specialized in polished silicon wafer amongst others. As part of this collaboration, the Taiwan-based company will receive an ion beam processing system from scia Systems.

Kyocera Tikitin adds Ion Beam Milling System for MEMS Device Etching to VTT Finland’s clean room

Smart devices and much smaller wearables - that's the mission Kyocera Tikitin is dedicated to. Along the way, they are developing and fabricating MEMS resonators made of silicon, deviating from the traditional use of quartz.

To expand their research capabilities, they added a scia Mill 200, an advanced ion beam milling system, at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, one of Europe’s leading research institutions.

Raytron Research Institute expands its technology with a system for localized ion beam etching: the scia Trim 200

A new scia Trim 200 system was commissioned by recently founded Yantai Qixin Semiconductor Technology Institute Co., a company jointly invested by the Chinese high-tech company Raytron Technology Co. and Yantai local government. The Raytron Research Institute, where the scia Trim 200 will be located, will be built as an open platform, meaning local universities and enterprises can also use this infrastructure and the equipment. The system will be used for surface error corrections on substrates up to 200 mm.
