We develop highly miniaturized products for wide range of applications in the medical sector and other high-tech industries. Integrating complex functions requires an experienced and interdisciplinary team with broad knowledge of cutting-edge technologies and the ability to bridge the different engineering disciplines. Because we have an extensive supplier network and no vested interest in any technology, we are in the perfect position to provide unbiased technical solutions that at the best meet the technical and economical requirements of our customers.

We help you with the following core services

Precision Mechanics

Micro-mechanical design involves the dimensioning and tolerancing of components and assemblies in range of micrometers. Our expertise covers:

  • Precision fabrication in metal and ceramics, through traditional machining or forming as well as microfabrication methods
  • Small injection molded plastic parts
  • Additive fabrication (3D printing), e.g., selective laser sintering (SLS), extrusion and electroforming
  • Miniaturized gear mechanisms and flexures
  • Hermetic encapsulation
  • Assembly and packaging technologies

Actuators & Transducers

Customized and application specific systems are able to provide high precision and efficient movements that can be integrated in products such as active implants and surgical instruments. Our fields of competence include:

  • Resonant systems and acoustics
  • Piezoelectric and electromagnetic actuators
  • Shape memory actuators (SMA, SMP)

Microsystems / MEMS

Our engineering activities range from a neutral technology evaluation and selection to a fully-fledged custom chip design. In all cases, device specification, fabrication process and system integration need to be equally considered and optimized for achieving a reliable result. Our portfolio includes:

  • Optical scanners
  • Silicon and glass components
  • Bonding technologies
  • Thin film coatings
  • Surface structuring and functionalization


Fluidic systems enable the manipulation of fluids as well as the interaction of optical, mechanical or electronical functions with liquid substances. We develop

  • Miniaturized drug delivery systems
  • Atomizers and evaporators
  • Design of fluidic components such as valves, filters, wicks, restrictors, seals, nozzles or cuvettes
  • Integration of sensors

Development Infrastructure

We rely on a comprehensive set of engineering and scientific software tools as well as a fully equipped lab infrastructure:

  • Finite element modelling and simulation
  • In-house prototyping and micro-assembly under controlled environment
  • High precision metrology (electronics, mechanics, optics)
