SCHOTT and Primoceler join forces to advance the next generation of ultra-miniature, ultra-reliable medical implants
The technology group SCHOTT has entered into an agreement to acquire Primoceler Oy to expand its hermetic packaging portfolio with pioneering glass micro bonding technology. This process enables the manufacture of vacuum-tight, ultra-miniature electronic and optical devices with superior reliability. Based on laser technology, this state-of-the-art bonding method can be completed without any heat or added materials, allowing device packaging for sensitive electronics made with only transparent materials, such as glass. Offering excellent biocompatibility with new glass types, the technology creates new possibilities for wafer level chip scale packaging (WL-CSP) in a wide range of applications, including medical implants, MEMS devices, and other reliability-critical electronic and optical devices.

SCHOTT breaks through the 100,000 units mark with transparent doors
Since the market launch in 2015, SCHOTT has successfully delivered more than 100,000 transparent glass door systems to customers. For a long time, food retailers like Lidl, Dia and Auchan have been benefiting from an unobstructed view of their product range – without cumbersome doorframes and vertical profiles. The transparent Termofrost® doors are not only found in German supermarkets, but in France, Spain, England, Poland, Brazil and Japan too. "One key aspect for the success of the doors was the use of transparent spacers for the insulation glass. The previously common vertical frame profiles and vertical pillars are no longer needed", says Christian Köhler, Vice President Food Display at SCHOTT. More

Precision material with practically zero expansion - ZERODUR® has been SCHOTT’s material answer for demanding high-tech applications for five decades.
For 50 years, the name has said it all: ZERODUR®. Half a century ago, materials specialists from SCHOTT using ingenious process technology developed this special glass-ceramic with a coefficient of expansion of nearly zero. This makes the material ideal for applications requiring the highest precision – such as in astronomy, IC lithography, the semiconductor industry, metrology and flat panel display production. One recent highlight is the order from the European Southern Observatory (ESO) for the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) project, for which SCHOTT will supply ZERODUR® segments for the primary mirror consisting of 798 hexagons in addition to several monolithic mirrors. SCHOTT is currently investing a mid-double digit million-euro amount in its glass-ceramic competence center in Mainz. With new melting capacities and post-processing options for a wide range of technical applications, the company is ideally positioned for the future. More
