We are pleased to announce that, effective October 30, 2020, PicoTherm Corporation joined the NETZSCH Group as a wholly owned subsidiary of NETZSCH Japan, K.K.
PicoTherm is one of the leading suppliers for nanoscale thermophysical properties testing instruments. They allow for measurement of the thermal diffusivity and thermal conductivity of thin layers in the range of micrometers and nanometers. Such technology is crucial, for example, for the optimization of hard metal coatings on cutting tools or layer structures in modern microelectronics. Testing and optimization of thin layers is getting more and more important for divers industrial applications. Especially in the development of 5G devices, overseas manufacturers are increasingly turning to PicoTherm’s PicoTR and NanoTR thermal analysis systems for thin films, so that they can design for optimal heat flow and dissipation. Pooling PicoTherm’s capabilities with those of NETZSCH Japan will boost manufacturing and support capacities, and further expand business.
