Company Updates

  • COVID-19

    This no-touch era inspired colleagues Oana Svets and Robin Provilijto to develop a 3D-printed handle for our heavy cleanroom doors. Thanks to their clever design, we can now use our elbows to open doors. Safe and smart!

  • We refresh the air supply of our EUV cleanroom 5H in Veldhoven at 30,000 cubic meters per hour. Funnel that through your front door and it would amount to a 150 km/hour gust. Whoosh!
