Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum offers a wide range of advanced vacuum solutions for use in manufacturing and analytical processes, as well as for research purposes. The company's core capabilities centre on the development of application and customer specific systems for the creation of vacuum and extraction of process gases.
Particle Metrix supplies instruments and services for particle characterisation and dispersion stability analysis. The focus is on small particles starting from 1 nm upwards or, from nano- and micro - particle dispersions to powders in the µm to mm range. The portfolio of instruments and services is based on own particle charge analysers and particle size and shape analysers from Microtrac Inc. and Occhio S.a.r.l.
Manufacturing processes or solar cells, semiconductors, DVDs and thermally insulated glass, as well as for coating high-stress mechanical tools or eyeglasses represent only a few examples of applications for vacuum technology. Vacuum also plays a major role in research & development and environmental technology, as well as in the analytical and automotive industries. For Pfeiffer Vacuum, a leading manufacturer of components and systems for vacuum generation, measurement and analysis, this results in a steady stream of new applications and markets that offer high growth potential.
