Products integrating nanotechnology solutions
SMART FORCE TECHNOLOGIES
Nano d'or for one of the first appliances dedicated to the controlled deposit of colloidal nano particles. Sectors of application: optical, life sciences, nano structure manufacturing, microelectronics.
Micron d'or for producing, using additive manufacturing, a plastic injection mould spindle with a two-channel regulation circuit with reverse propellers of up to 0.25mm in diameter over a length of more than 100mm.
Devices and sub-assemblies integrating microtechnical components
Micron d'or for the design, manufacture and fine-tuning of a very high precision ±0.5µm "flip-chip bonders" machine. Sectors of application: calculators integrating optics, high-definition cameras, spatial, medical.
Microtechnical production tools and instruments
Micron d'or for producing a process to obtain a medical gold micro component weighing 0.2 thousandths of a gram in quantities of around 100,000 parts per year.
Machine tools and microtechnical production machinery, automated systems, fittings
Micron d'or for a rapid cutting machine (up to 300mm/s) for transparent materials and crystals, using an ultra-short pulse laser.
Microsystem prototypes exclusively reserved for research organisations
Micron d'or for an industrial solution or series manufacturing of millimetre parts in complex forms, in Amorphous Metal Alloys (AMA) with performances greatly superior to those achieved currently: 5 times more resistant, 5 times more precise, with mirror or textured surfaces.
Special jury prizes
FEMTO-ST / Dépt. Optique
