Participation on joint research project - NanoTools

scia Systems takes part in a joint project for the development of coated micro cutting tools based on nano wear-protection layers. The objective of the collaboration between industrial companies and R&D institutes is to provide a scientific-technical base for the reliable industrial use of ALD coatings (ALD - atomic layer deposition) and ion beam coatings (DIBD – dual ion beam deposition), in comparison to PVD coatings, as well as to define their field of application.

Fraunhofer FEP orders a scia Magna 200

The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP from Dresden works on the development of innovative production technologies for surface processing. 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.

scia Systems joined SAWLab Saxony

The network SAWLab Saxony is a concentration of expertise in the field of acousto-electronic devices, which was brought to life by IFW Dresden. Besides the know-how of IFW Dresden, several local research institutes, universities, and high-tech companies contribute to the network in order to generate an interdisciplinary research of international attention. scia Systems is glad to support the SAWLab Saxony with its technologies and experience in thin film technology, especially frequency trimming, and is looking forward to a future-oriented cooperation.

scia Coat 200 for MPI Halle

scia Systems awarded the contract at a tender for an “ion beam etch and deposition system”. The company is looking forward to deliver a scia Coat 200 to the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics in Halle next year. The system will be used as part of the research on magnetic layers.

Team scia Systems Strong runners at the Chemnitzer Firmenlauf

Also this year, many sportive colleagues came together to participate at the "Firmenlauf" in Chemnitz for scia Systems. As an innovation this time, there were three running teams. The fastest were our "IonMen" followed by "Flotte Igel" and "Plasma Runners".

We would like to thank the runners for the successful participation and hope you had a lot of fun and not too sore legs. We are looking forward to an equally broad participation next year.
