Strategic reorganization for focussing on industrial target markets: 3D-Micromac sets the course for further growth

Strategic reorganization for focussing on industrial target markets: 3D-Micromac sets the course for further growth

Since its founding 3D-Micromac AG has achieved a continuous growth. Due to the high specialization level of the systems and the advanced laser technology 3D-Micromac reached the market leadership in certain niches. To proceed on this successful way 3D-Micromac sets the course for a strategic reorganization in December 2014. A far stronger focus on growing in lucrative market segments and the readjustment of the product portfolio for industrial applications in laser and micro processing will be the core of the company’s future activities.

3D-Micromac introduces all-new system for high-throughput microdiagnostic sample preparation at ISTFA 2014

microPREP43D-Micromac introduces all-new system for high-throughput microdiagnostic sample preparation at ISTFA 2014

3D-Micromac AG, a leading supplier of state-of-the-art laser micromachining systems, introduces a novel laser system for high-throughput microdiagnostic sample preparation at ISTFA 2014 in Houston, Texas from November 11 to November 12, 2014.

The all-new microPREP™ system for laser-based sample preparation was developed to provide efficient laser micromachining fitted to the needs of microstructure diagnostics and failure diagnostics. Based on patented processing, 3D-Micromac’s microPREP™ is ready to do the laser cutting of a base structure followed by local laser thinning in an almost entirely automated fashion. Making use of a rugged pulsed laser source, the process is characterized by very low running costs, suitability for semiconductors, metals, ceramics, as well as compounds thereof, and a very high targeted precision on the micron scale.

For the first time 3D-Micromac AG will present its microDICE™ laser dicing system and further innovative solutions for processing of semiconductors at Semicon West 2014.

San Francisco, CA. – July 7, 2014

3D-Micromac AG, a leading supplier of state-of-the-art laser micromachining workstations, will present novel laser applications for semiconductor industry at Semicon West 2014 in San Francisco, CA from July 8 to July 10, 2014.

For the first time, 3D-Micromac will show the high-performance microDICE™ laser dicing system which brings TLS-Dicing™ technology (Thermal-Laser-Separation) to semiconductor‘s back-end. The microDICE™ separates wafers, including SiC, into dies with an outstanding edge quality while increasing the yield and the throughput. Compared to traditional separation technologies microDICE™ provides a much higher process speed and better throughput enabling high-volume production of SiC based devices.
