Further Investments in Coating Services business unit
Beneq, the leading global supplier of atomic layer deposition (ALD) equipment and thin film coating services, and world’s premier manufacturer of thin film electroluminescent displays, today announced further investments in ALD coating services and outsourced thin film coating production.
Coating Services seen as a major growth area
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.
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” says Tommi Vainio, Vice President, Thin Film Solutions from Beneq.
