Benefits of Thin as a Service

Faster, easier, less risky and customized

Atomic layer deposition, ALD, enables completely new innovative products and coatings that would not be possible with any other technology.

Thin as a Service™ is Beneq’s complete ALD service solution that provides you with a quick and easy way to implement thin film coatings from the first samples to full-blown production. Here are the main benefits of outsourcing the development and production of thin films:

One-stop ALD for the whole life cycle of your product

The idea behind the Beneq service business is to support you through the whole process of solving any issue you may have with a commercially viable thin film solution.

Whether you need ALD samples, coating chemistry research, a proof of concept with your specific application requirements, or quality equipment for full-blown ALD production, we’ve got it all.

Faster time to market

Implementing an ALD solution from a concept to industrial production can take years. Each step from preliminary research and first samples to the selection of manufacturing equipment involves risks and uncertainties that are difficult to manage without extensive experience.

With Beneq, your ALD application can be production ready in just six months and in full production in less than a year.

Managed risk from lab to fab

Beneq's Thin as a Service™ is the most cost-efficient way to develop and scale up a thin film solution for a specific industrial application. The service concept provides you with clear milestones from the first contact to the customer care of your ALD production line.

When you know the investments, deliverables and timelines for each step, you can mitigate both technical and business risks of the process. It is also easy to estimate the required investments.

Unique know-how and technical capabilities

With Thin as a Service™, you get access to all Beneq’s skilled ALD experts and over 30 years of production experience in thin film coating. Our team has extensive industrial ALD experience from numerous industries, including optics, photovoltaics, electronics, medical, defense and aerospace.
