A research institute with internationally recognized expertise in innovative materials development.
Scaling up a new surface treatment from “lab to fab”.
The suggestion of solution
What have we achieved?
An industrial platform for ion implantation called Walibeam has been created with the support of the Walloon region and FEDER, European funding. The Walibeam consortium is currently supported by AGC Glass Europe, Ionics, Graux and CRM. It receives a lot of interest from several other industrial majors in the fields of surface treatment of glass, metals and polymers. This platform will host an exceptional set of industrial pilot installations that will allow to make prototyping and have a proof of concept before scaling up to a mass production scale.
How does the client evaluate our solution?
“The industrial experience and the know-how in plasma processes makes AGC the ideal partner for bringing new technologies to the industry. AGC supports the promotion of the technology as a partner in the Walibeam consortium and can act as the integrator of this technology in mass production lines.”
