|ANAHEIM, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 9, 2005--Jenoptik
Mikrotechnik GmbH, the industry pioneer in the design and fabrication
of hot embossing tools, has announced here at Nanotech 2005 the
introduction of its HEX Series of hot embossing equipment. These
systems provide the user with maximum flexibility in the high
precision molding of polymer parts which contain features in the micro
and nano dimension domain including those with high aspect ratios. The
HEX Series systems introduced provide solutions from R&D applications
to highly automated/high throughput applications. Current popular
applications of these tools include optical gratings and microfluidic
chips for biomedical applications.
The diversity of the HEX Series product line allows the user to
select the proper tool for their budget and application. The HEX
Series has been designed and formulated to be expandable and easily
updated due to its powerful and flexible operational software.
Engineered to meet a wide variety of applications, the systems offer a
wide range of selectable parameters including applied force,
temperature and chamber vacuum pressure that can be programmed as a
function of time easily and conveniently. This results in optimum
device performance, high yield, high repeatability and maximum
throughput of manufactured devices. All systems enable typical feature
size from several micrometers to less than 50 nanometers.
The HEX 01 System was designed specifically for research labs,
university and small-scale production requirements. It provides
flexibility and rugged design at low cost.
The HEX 02 System incorporates a wider process range and includes
automation capability that makes it ideally suitable for pilot
production and R&D applications.
The HEX 03 System offers unequalled process range, throughput and
is fully automated. In-situ auto alignment enables large volume
production and versatility for advanced product development at the
Mr. Johannes Froehling, Jenoptik Mikrotechnik's Director of
Marketing and Sales, said, "Jenoptik is the acknowledged pioneer in
hot embossing and our HEX Series of tools offers a wide range of
performance and automation capabilities to best match the customers'
requirements. Of significant interest is our unique and proprietary
Active De-Embossing Technology which provides the user with a smooth
and gentle separation of the substrate and the mold resulting in parts
of exceptional uniformity and minimum induced stress which translates
into high yield. In addition, our ability to provide equipment which
can provide up to 200kN of press force enables the optimum form fill
factor for the part resulting in a higher precision part which also
increases product quality and yield."
The price for Jenoptik Mikrotechnik's HEX Series of Hot Embossing
Tools starts at $200,000 US.
