130 Years Of Pfeiffer Vacuum

News

Pfeiffer Vacuum has been shaping the vacuum industry since 1890

Pfeiffer Vacuum has been influencing developments in vacuum technology for 130 years. Science and industry have benefited equally from the numerous innovations developed and successfully brought to the market by this long-established company. A key example being the turbomolecular pump, which was developed by the company in 1958 and has been integral to the market ever since. Thanks to its expertise, Pfeiffer Vacuum is still considered one of the world's market and technology leaders in this field.

When Arthur Pfeiffer founded the company in Wetzlar, Germany, in 1890, he initially devoted his attention to the production of remote ignition systems for gas lamps. Once electric light bulbs had established themselves on the market, the company founder quickly turned his attention to the new lighting technology that led him to look at the vacuum technology used in its production. Arthur Pfeiffer quickly recognized the significance that vacuum technology could have in practically all areas of industry and research - and he subsequently concentrated entirely on this field. Since then, Pfeiffer Vacuum has played a key role in shaping vacuum technology.

Today, customers include the Max Planck Institute, CERN, XFEL and EADS - vacuum pumps made by the Asslar-based manufacturer are even in use in the ISS space station. There, as in many other applications, the customer's requirements are often very complex - not only with regard to the vacuum requirement itself, but also to the specifics of the system in question, the materials and products used or to be processed, and the process conditions.


Automotive components, smartphones, pacemakers, textiles - vacuum technology is used for all these products and its solutions play an important role in both food production and in the pharmaceutical industry. Products and solutions from Pfeiffer Vacuum are developed for the fields of analytics, industry, research and development, coating systems and semiconductors.

Dr. Eric Taberlet, Chief Executive Officer of Pfeiffer Vacuum Technology AG:

“With our durable products and customized vacuum solutions, we are able to satisfy practically every customer requirement and to establish relationships that will endure for years to come. At Pfeiffer Vacuum, ‘sustainability' is not just an empty word. We are aware of our responsibility. And this is why, at all our locations around the world, we establish the necessary conditions to make sure that our staff enjoy working for Pfeiffer Vacuum. We are socially committed, because we want to give something back, and we produce our products in the most energy-efficient and environmentally compatible
manner possible. We have been living and breathing sustainability - by tradition - for 130 years.



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.
