mechatronic systemtechnik in Austria has opened a €20m technology centre in Fürnitz with a new cleanroom.

The facility for mechatronic covers 6,500m2 across three storeys and includes a clean room and laboratory, which are central to the planning, development, and production of the company’s semiconductor substrate handling systems.

Founded in 1998 in Villach, mechatronic specializes in fully automated handling of non-standard substrates, including stacked, thin, or warped wafers, as well as eWLP, MEMS, TAIKO, bumped, and film frames. It was acquired by Accuron Technologies in 2017.

The company has grown 20% a year over the last five years, and this move is essential in order to meet burgeoning customer demand and accommodate future development.

“We are excited about the capabilities this new facility brings to our operations,” said Mr Walter Schober, CEO and Founder of mechatronic. “The Technology Centre not only expands our production capacity but also underscores our dedication to sustainable practices.”

Environmental sustainability was a key priority in the design of the technology centre. The entire building is heated and cooled with underfloor heating combined with heat recovery and concrete core activation, and a solar photovoltaic (PV) system with a capacity of 361 kWp on its roof.

 “This new Technology Centre is a milestone for both mechatronic and the Accuron Group. It demonstrates our long-term commitment to subsidiaries, employees, and host countries. We look forward to celebrating mechatronic’s achievements and industry contributions in the years ahead,” said Philip Yeo, Chairman of Accuron Technologies.

The Fürnitz site is around 35% larger than the current facility and will accommodate approximately 130 employees, with plans for additional recruitment to support future growth.
