Description

A Dutch company is a developer, manufacturer and supplier of plating equipment for semiconductor, solar, flex foil and connector applications. Plating, also known as electrodeposition, is a process where a thin layer of metal is deposited on the surface of a work piece referred to as a substrate. Plating is one of the last steps in the semiconductor or semiconductor like manufacturing processes and holds an important role as protective shell and interactive layer between the substrate with its internal circuits and the outside world. The Dutch company offers a number of different plating solutions with different materials that can be deposited, such as copper, nickel, tin, gold, silver and palladium. Most installed plating processes are: • Lead frame plating. A lead frame is a thin layer of metal frame to which semiconductors are attached during the package assembly process. • Connector plating for a wide variety of connectors, products and finishes. • Solar plating for solar cell manufacturing. • Film and foil plating for a large variety of applications including radio frequency identification (RFID) smart labels and tags. The Dutch company complement the supply of plating processes with all required process chemistry, hardware, accessories, installation, training, production start-up, quality control and service needs. The company installed more than 800 plating machines around the world, mostly in Asia. Most important end-user market segments are semicon, solar panel, automotive and aviation industries with components that are manufactured in mass-production volumes. The Dutch company looks for new plating processes that are in development at research institutes, universities, polytechnic institutes and/or technostarters. The role of the research institute, university, polytechnic institute and/or technostarter is bringing in the new plating process concept or first prototype environment of the plating process. The role of the Dutch company is focused on the industrialization of new innovative plating processes with a commercially viable market. The Dutch company looks for technical cooperation agreements to bring the new plating initiatives to the next phase of industrialization. The Dutch company is also used to being a partner in European projects.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you

To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
