Atomic layer deposition from samples to production and beyond
Atomic layer deposition, ALD, may seem like a complicated technology, but selecting the right ALD partner is easy: Beneq brings you over thirty years of thin film experience and the world’s largest ALD-dedicated production facility. We have implemented more industrial ALD applications than any other company.
From Beneq you can get a customized coating solution as a service. That is all you need to know.
Thin as a Service™
Atomic layer deposition, ALD, enables completely new innovative products and improves traditional ones with 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 ALD from the first samples to full-blown production.
The service solution consists of two parts: the R&D service that aims to find the customized ALD solution the customer is looking for followed by the industrial production solution that applies the results on the customer’s end products.
The first service part is based on our ALD-123™ development process, after which the coating solution is production ready. You can then select from two options for production: buy your own equipment or continue with Beneq’s coating services. Check the ALD-123 process description for details about the process and its phases. The ALD-123 process pages also include examples of how the ALD-123 process has worked in practice with our customers.
Faster, easier and less risky – and always customized
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.
You name it, we coat it!
Together we will find the right process, chemistry and application for any specific coating challenge you may have. Depending on your needs, we will also provide you with production equipment you can count on or book you production capacity from our own ALD factory.
No matter what the shape of your product or the kind of coating you need, Beneq makes it thinner and faster – and pixel perfect every time.
