Semiconductor and EUV-Lithography

Computers and tablets are becoming thinner from version to version. Cell phones and smartphones are becoming ever smaller and more complex. For this reason, the semiconductor industry has constantly had to deal with the challenge of producing ever more powerful and cost-effective microchips since its inception.

For more than 40 years, optical systems have been supplied as key components for the production and miniaturization of chips, paving the way to higher productivity for international chip manufacturers. Optical lithography requires structures smaller than 45 nanometers: one of the most promising approaches to create these structures is EUV lithography. EUV lithography is a process that uses electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength of 13.5 nanometers - so-called extreme ultraviolet radiation.

The mechanical design must meet extremely strict requirements for this process, as the vibrations of the machine must not be transmitted to the optics during the exposure process under any circumstances.


Only one chance

The range of aerospace parts often includes complex, elaborate and extensively machined workpieces. High-performance materials such as nickel-based alloys, titanium and composites, i.e. fibre-reinforced plastics, require extensive expertise in process-optimized manufacturing strategies and multi-layered mechanical processing.

In the future, ever lighter aircraft with ever lower energy consumption and higher payloads will be developed.

BERGHOFF is at the side of the aerospace industry as an experienced and long-term certified project partner.


More flexible and efficient manufacturing solutions in demand

Ageing societies, higher disposable incomes, better medical care and, at the same time, increasing cost pressure in the healthcare sector characterize the environment for medical technology. However, all these developments promise one thing: the market for medical technology products remains attractive. It will continue to grow and with it the challenges.

More flexible and efficient production solutions are required, while maintaining a consistently high standard of quality and guaranteed production reliability. Above all, efficiency means speed. Faster implementation of specific requirements in digital product prototypes, rapid creation of CNC programs, fast setup and retooling of machines for different batch sizes and, last but not least, rapid processing in the machine are the main challenges in the production process.

Other key issues are the materials used, such as chrome-cobalt, stainless steels, ceramics, plastics or magnesium, some of which are difficult to machine, strict hygiene guidelines, maximum precision in the µ range and coatings made of metal, plastic or ceramic, which have to be extremely thin and yet robust at the same time.

Generative manufacturing processes are expanding the product range in medical technology. Generative processes enable components with new functions that cannot be produced conventionally by machining. Such processes expand the possibilities of component production.

BERGHOFF brings its motto "pure performance - absolute precision" to medical technology with passion.


With high pressure

Power plants, modern means of transportation and many everyday devices would not function without pumps. Cities and living spaces as we know them today would be inconceivable without pumps. The range is as diverse as the requirements. The power spectrum ranges from a few watts to several megawatts, and pumps can handle liquids of any consistency as well as solids and even living organisms or foodstuffs. German manufacturers are among the market leaders in many areas. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

But extruders and pumps are also indispensable in industry. Toothbrushes, plastic fittings in automobiles, powder-coated car rims, dowels, cable insulation, shoe soles, seals, window profiles, packaging - the list of products that everyone encounters in everyday life and whose starting material was processed with machines or systems from BERGHOFF customers could be continued almost endlessly.

In complex processes such as the preparation of viscous masses, the quality of the end product is the decisive factor. From dosing to feeding, conveying, melting, dispersing, homogenizing, degassing, pressure build-up, filtering and granulating, all process steps must be precisely tailored to the application.


Throughput is what counts

Gas turbines, steam turbines, large engines and generators have proven themselves as mechanical drives for the transportation of oil and gas and for many other industrial applications.

As compressor or pump drives, they meet all expectations in terms of reliability, availability, efficiency and environmental compatibility, thus enabling economical operation and low life cycle costs.

Mechanical drives are used worldwide in the oil and gas industry, e.g. in onshore and offshore production, on FPSOs, on oil and gas pipelines as compressor and pump drives, in LNG plants, refineries and in the chemical and petrochemical industry, as well as in the rail technology sector or as power plant equipment.

Reliability, environmental compatibility and cost-effectiveness - these are the most important requirements placed on the energy supply solution.


To find oil you need to drill

Global primary energy demand is expected to grow by more than 40 percent over the next 25 years. In order to meet this demand, a wide range of energy resources will be required, of which oil and natural gas still account for the largest share.

However, around half of the conventional oil reserves that will be needed by the end of the next decade have yet to be developed or even found. New technologies for safe and economical extraction are needed to exploit new oil resources from unconventional and hard-to-access sources to make up for this shortfall.
