Key competences and facilities

Customers from diverse markets benefit from first-class technical service support, which are based on glass or silicon – or on both combined. Individual and customised solutions are the highest goal of iX-factory GmbH. Special expertise is held by the highly experienced engineers in the technology area of micro fluidics and micro reactors. iX-factory GmbH has the profound knowhow to manufacture micro reactors on glass and silicon. Depending on the requirements, micro reactors consist of channels with diameters ranging from 50 to 3000 µm, which further can be manufactured with up to 20 layers of the chosen substrates. Through the adaptation of micro reactor designs optimisation of various process steps in one reactor becomes feasible so that process times can be shortened. Processes can be performed on 100, 150 as well as 200 mm silicon, SOI, DSOI, borosilicate, fused silica and other substrates. iX-factory GmbH works with carefully selected wafer manufacturers delivering single/double side polished, doping levels, roughness, bow/warp, and many more.
