Materion Advanced Materials Announces Collaboration with ZMC
Date : Aug 21, 2017 Author : Rahul Singh Category : Business
Materion Corporation is a manufacturer and supplier of highly advanced engineering equipment for diverse applications such as automotive, defense, industrial components, and electronics.
Materion is one of the leading players in the global evaporation materials market and has production units spread across North America, Europe, and Asia, with offices and service centers in more than 50 countries. The company operates its business through three main segments – advanced materials, performance alloys and composites, and others. The others segment includes optical filter materials, sputter coatings, and large area and optic coatings.
Materion is an advanced supplier of material and that is why it is slightly difficult to answer the question, “What does Materion specialize in?” Materion materials enable technology to make the world a better place by providing a safe and sustainable future.
While customers don’t typically ‘see’ Materion products, they come into contact with them on a daily basis. Some examples of this are –
Commercial jetliners – Materion creates the metal alloy that keeps the electrical connectors in place – irrespective of heat, extreme conditions, and vibrations. The reliability of the parts allows the aircraft to be serviced for almost 40 years.
Electronics – Performance, and reliability are key to any computer, tablet, smartphone, or electronic device. People rely on these devices 24/7. Materion material atoms change the semiconductor characteristics, enabling them to process tasks faster – whenever and wherever needed.
Automobiles – Materion is hard at work to ensure that a car is safe. Materion clad metals, alloys, and optics are seen in automobile navigation systems, front & rear-view cameras, automatic braking systems, and other sensors.
Lighting – There is a high probability of Materion materials in energy-saving LED lights. The inorganic chemical phosphors make LEDs highly power efficient and enable the light output to show better colors.
Currency – It doesn’t matter if the currency in question is Dollars, Euros, Yen, or Yuan. All these major currencies have some Materion technology built in. The inorganic chemicals allow printing inks to change color, making it hard for money to be counterfeited.
Healthcare – Materion chemistry plays an invaluable role in the lives of diabetics who rely on blood glucose test strips. The thin film deposition capability of Materion facilitates high consistency and accuracy – essential in medical testing devices.
With the partnership between Materion and ZMC, the latter will non-exclusively represent the former in their sales and service of sputtering targets, evaporation materials, and PVD thin film materials. Materion AMG's precious metals assist all the major original equipment manufacturer platforms and they can be customized for any target configuration.
The metals can meet the exact needs of microelectronic manufacturing processes with the help of purified materials for reduced downtime and improved yield.
