microTEC Gesellschaft für Mikrotechnologie mbH is recognized as the industry leader for 3D printed microstructures and microsystems. Committed to customer success since 1996, microTEC delivers comprehensive innovative solutions. Our focus is on miniaturization and system integration. As an internationally renowned contract developer and manufacturer across the industries of:
- Life Science
- Consumer Electronics
microTEC continues delivering applied microtechnologies to its satisfied customers, located around the world, for over 20 years.
We offer a full-service package to translate product ideas into tangible solutions, for instance, design and development, prototyping, and large volume production on substrates up to 14″ x 14″. Our internationally patented production technologies are based on a proprietary, in-house developed additive manufacturing approach, that uses UV-light and photomasks to structure liquid photo monomers. In a layer-by-layer fashion with lateral resolutions and accuracies down to the 1µm range microstructures currently grow at two sites in Duisburg, Germany and under exclusive license at a partner site in Belgium.
Our highly qualified team works together with external experts and partners in chemistry, materials science and robotics to constantly improve the technology and products. Together, we are helping our customers develop and launch innovative products.
Customized solutions include microfluidics for life science applications, multi and smart material structures, and cost-efficient MEMS. microTEC integrates electronic elements, like processors, memory, sensors, active and passive components, and batteries vertically or side-by-side. We further integrate contact strips as connectors, antennas for wireless communication and coils for the application of energy harvesting. The advantages of the parallel packaging processing like the capability of parallel wiring with various metal stacks via physical vapor deposition (PVD) in 3 dimensions make the technology extremely cost efficient. The batch-oriented approach allows an easy scale up from prototyping to large volumes with the very same technology. microTEC is proud to be competitive in producing any product that requires high precision in large volumes.
