Exhibitor Spotlight on Forge Nano

Describe your target market. 

Forge Nano is actively working with partners in; semiconductors, displays, microelectronics, batteries, medical, pharma, automotive, consumer electronics, emissions, and other high tech applications. Our surface engineering platform uses Atomic Layer Deposition to solve problems and optimize products at the atomic level.  

We solve surface engineering problems from the very atoms that produce them. Our platform technology applies atom thick coatings to surfaces in order to optimize their atomic make up. When products are improved at this level, we produce better, more efficient, longer lasting, and safer technologies by specifically designing their atomic properties.  

 Our platform technology can be found in applications, from Automotive, to Consumer Electronics to Bio Medical and Pharmaceuticals. We’ve worked with major automotive OEMs, global consumer electronics brands, and many innovative, high-tech companies to optimize their products from the atomic scale. Our line of tools and solutions are suited to drop into existing infrastructure from R&D scale, to high throughput manufacturing. Atomic Layer Deposition is actively used to improve product performance in a number of commercial products, including; Semiconductors, Displays, Consumer Electronics, Batteries and Automotive.

Describe your competition. 

Forge Nano works actively in advanced surface engineering solutions. Our technology solves engineering challenges at the atomic scale, using our platform technology for scalable Atomic Layer Deposition. When dealing with advanced technologies, manufacturers must work at the atomic level, in order to make their products better. There is no match to the level of precision, and control that our platform for Atomic Layer Deposition can provide. Atomic Layer Deposition is a thing film coating technique, where layers of film are applied at the atomic level in order to optimize or protect the substrate. Other techniques in this field are CVD, PVD, MLD.  

Our technology makes engineering surfaces at the atomic level, scalable, and cost effective.
