scia Systems

scia Systems is a full range supplier of advanced ion beam and plasma processing equipment. The systems are applicable for etching (e.g., delayering of dies), trimming (e.g., surface correction of filter devices) and coating (e.g., temperature compensation films) processes in the production of microelectronics, MEMS and precision optics.

Thanks to their flexible and modular design, our systems can be configured according to specific customer requirements. With a scia Cluster 200 system, you can choose between numerous possible process combinations or multiple identical chambers. This makes our cluster platform a cost and space effective solution for both, high-volume production as well as research and development environments.
