Since 1991, Alliance Concept focuses all its forces and skills to the development and to manufacture thin films deposition systems. The first machine in Switzerland has been delivered in 2000 and now it’s more than 20 machines in the whole country. Some of their customers are the CMI at the EPFL, the CSEM or some of the most famous companies in watch industry.
In order to give you the best solutions, they keep focused on Physical Vapor Deposition technologies (PVD). This means that the deposited films achieved in our systems are typically measured under the micron scale, in the nanometer unit.
This PVD family includes:
- Magnetron sputtering,
- Thermal evaporation.
The limit between other chemical thin films growing using chemical way is the PECVD: Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapour Deposition. We have realised a few specific systems using this process type.
Alliance concept is also developing tailor made Helium leak detection systems.
