In mid-2019, the Fraunhofer EMFT had reached the industrialisation phase of a micropump device that could be used in medical or industrial applications. The process to produce this micropump had been originally developed by the Fraunhofer EMFT.
We carefully selected industrial partners that were capable of producing this product in a more efficient and industrial scale.
As part of that industrialisation we selected Optim Wafer Services to perform the specific grind, CMP & cleaning step that occurred mid-way through the fabrication steps.
Pre Grind & CMP
Post Grind CMP
We found Optim to be highly competent and efficient, though a small team they came with a good level of technical knowledge and experience. The initial results were highly encouraging and we found their approach to be flexible and open. Even though the project is not yet completed, we are confident in their abilities to complete the qualification to our standards.
