Our Story
Mission
To demonstrate the commercial
viability of microfabrication and
make microcomponents readily
available to customers
Founding
High-tech start-up launched in
2007 by physicist Joachim Schulz
of the Karlsruhe Research Center
(now KIT)
First steps
High-end watch parts using X-ray
LIGA technology
Growth
Expansion into micro gears,
gratings, X-ray optical elements;
Use of E-beam, laser, and 2-photon
LIGA lithography; Cost reduction via
improved techniques
Present focus
Enabling superior, more efficient
X-ray imaging through standardized
and custom microparts
