Big Growth from Thin Films

Kitchener, Ontario-based Angstrom Engineering, Inc. has built a strong international reputation providing equipment and services to support the growing market of thin film nanotechnology. Angstrom designs and assembles equipment used to make thin films via physical vapour deposition (PVD) or a chemical vapour deposition (CVD) process. Angstrom also offers thin film coating as a service for clients that prefer this option over owning and operating their own thin film deposition equipment. These microscopically thin layers of material have many uses.

The Rise of Nanotechnology

Working Smarter

A key goal of any successful manufacturing operation is a continual drive toward improving the efficiency of the manufacturing process. Traditionally, this has been accomplished through the adoption of lean production principles, waste reduction using the Six Sigma approach, and similar productivity solutions. These systems have been widely incorporated throughout the manufacturing industry and have significantly improved product quality, production speeds, and perhaps most importantly, the safety of those working in manufacturing plants.
