, a leading precision sensor manufacturer, has made a multi-million-euro investment in a new micro-mechatronics production centre at its headquarters in Germany, to serve the semiconductor industry
Sensors developed for the semiconductor and aerospace industry will be manufactured at the production centre from spring 2021, enabling a significant increase in the company’s production volumes over the coming years.
The new building will provide optimum conditions for the strict production and quality requirements and products to be manufactured in this facility include sensors for current and future generations of semiconductor lithography machines, as well as sensors used for various measurement tasks in aircraft.
A particular focus of this building is its cleanroom and environmental capabilities. In addition to the high requirements for cleanliness, specific humidity and temperature values must also be maintained during production and assembly.
In order to keep these environmental conditions constant, a sophisticated building monitoring and control system has been implemented which continually monitors and adjusts the air quality and particle levels to ensure these are maintained within precise limits.
Dr Thomas Wisspeintner, Micro-Epsilon CEO, said: “The new manufacturing area increases our production capacity and enables us to manufacture products of the highest quality and precision, which are important for the technological progress of solutions for demanding measurement tasks.”
He also considers the new building for special sensor technology as an important milestone for the sustainable safeguarding and expansion of the company's business development.
Mr Wisspeintner added: “The new production centre is a clear statement of intent that shows the business is continuing with its growth strategy, even in difficult times.”
