Year 2017 started with a great Photonics West 2017 show! We had many interesting conversations and new applications for our technology. We were also honoured to be one of the finalists at Golden Mousetrap Award in MD&M West in Anaheim.

IMAPS-UK MicroTech – Advanced Packaging & Technology Trends, was held on March 16th at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL), Didcot. We presented our hermetic micro-bonding applied for vacuum sealing. The topic was seen highly interesting and we were delighted to win the best poster award.

To celebrate the spring and to prepare to meet the growing demand from our customers, we have moved to new premises. The new premises offer a lot  more clean room space. Furthermore, we have now office space in two floors and room to take in new personnel.

Just after office warming party it was time to switch forks and knives to chopsticks and travel to BIT’S 6th Annual World Congress of Advanced Materials held in China, where specifically new OLED materials were discussed.

From Asia back to Nordic countries and at IMAPS NordPac 2017 Nordic Conference on Microelectronics Packaging in Gothenburg. It was a joy to see many innovations originating from cold and dark north. We were proud to present the results of our co-operation project with the European Space Agency with the title “Room temperature bonding for packaging CMOS image sensors; direct sapphire ceramic sealing”.

Only few days after Midsummer it was time to turn all eyes on glass at Glass Performance Days held in Tampere, Finland. We were honoured to be invited to Step Change Pitching Competition and meet other glass industry professionals.
