Akrion Systems is to ship GAMA wet stations to a range of MEMS-product based manufacturers this year worth over US$20 million. The company will ship GAMA wet stations to the Centre de Collaboration MiQro Innovation (C2MI) in Bromont Technoparc, Quebec, Canada and to major suppliers of MEMS devices in Europe and Southeast Asia.  

"Sales have been brisk for us this year. In particular, we have experienced a major increase in orders from MEMS customers,” noted Michael Ioannou, CEO and president of Akrion Systems. “New and repeat customers recognize the value we add with our extensive experience and process knowledge to help them find solutions to the many challenges associated with the manufacturing of advanced MEMS devices."

Akrion noted that its ‘i-Clean’ in situ processing, ‘ICE-1,’ chemical concentration control and the ‘DIO3,’ ozonated-water cleaning method which replaces sulfuric acid for organic removal applications were central technologies to its capabilities in the MEMS market.
