Beneq Expands Thin Film Coating Services

News

Beneq's Coating Services business unit offers turnkey production solutions for thin film coatings based on Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) in Beneq's Espoo factory, the Home of ALD.

The growing interest from the customers towards the outsourcing solutions is now driving further investments in the area. Growth is expected in many industries, from anti-tarnish coatings for silver and anti-corrosion protection of electronic components and machine parts, to optical coatings and moisture barrier solutions for sensitive electronics, such microdisplays and PCB's.

Combined with Beneq's Thin Film Development Services that offer outsourced thin film R&D services, the Beneq Coating Services business unit provides a one-stop solution for companies looking for new ways to improve their products with ALD coatings, from the first ALD samples and coating chemistry research to production pilots and full-blown ALD manufacturing.

Erik Østreng appointed Head of Coating Services

Dr. Erik Østreng (33) has been appointed to lead Beneq's new business unit for coating services. He will be responsible for the business result and development of the Beneq Coating Services business unit in alignment with Beneq's strategy, with a focus especially on improving the offering of the coating services unit and expanding the outsourced thin film production model to new application areas.

Erik has a PhD from the department of chemistry at University of Oslo and he brings with him extensive ALD experience to Beneq. He has worked both in academia and in the ALD industry with a wide range of topics from batteries to microelectronics. Before joining Beneq, Erik worked at Picosun as Director of Applications and Services.

Says Erik: "I see great potential in both the ALD coating business and the thin film coating services. Beneq has a unique facility for such services with over 30 years of ALD production experience and more ALD equipment than I have ever seen anywhere under one roof. I am really looking forward to taking the Beneq Coating Services business to the next level."

The Fastest way to market with a new thin film coating solution

The Beneq services team already have many success stories with companies in a variety of markets, from defense and aerospace to medical and consumer applications. The outsourced production model offers customers a great way to explore the high-performance ALD technology and thin film coatings with a low threshold and limited risk.

The fastest way to full-blown production is to outsource the whole production of thin films to Beneq Coating Services. This is the ideal way to start if the customer wants to get the best available conformal coating as fast as possible and start industrial ALD production without initial capital investments. For customers who want to buy their own ALD equipment, the Beneq Coating Services unit offers the possibility to pilot production at the Beneq ALD factory during equipment deliveries.

"We have already proven that the outsourced ALD production model works and the feedback from our coating services customers about our services has been excellent. We see growth opportunities in many industries for ALD coatings that protect from moisture, tarnishing and corrosion. Erik's deep understanding of the thin film industry and ALD coatings, and his customer-driven and analytic way of thinking are ideally suited to drive our coating services business forward," says Tommi Vainio, Vice President, Thin Film Solutions from Beneq.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
