Berlin, Germany (24 March 2021)—INAM, the Innovation Network for Advanced Materials, is pleased to welcome SAES Group as their newest corporate member.
A pioneer in the development of getter technology, the SAES® Group is the world leader in a variety of scientific and industrial applications where stringent vacuum conditions are required. In 80 years of activity, the Group’s getter solutions have been supporting technological innovation in the information display and lamp industries, in sophisticated high vacuum systems and in vacuum thermal insulation, in technologies spanning from large vacuum power tubes to miniaturized silicon-based microelectronic and micromechanical devices (MEMS).
Starting in 2004, by leveraging the core competencies in special metallurgy and in the materials science, the SAES Group has expanded its business into the advanced material markets, in particular the market of shape memory alloys, a family of materials characterized by super elasticity and by the property of assuming predefined forms when subjected to heat treatment. These special alloys, which today are mainly applied in the biomedical sector, are also perfectly suited to the realization of actuator devices for the industrial sector (domotics, white goods industry, consumer electronics, healthcare, automotive and luxury sector).
More recently, SAES has expanded its business by developing a technological platform that integrates getter materials in a polymeric matrix. These products, initially developed for OLED displays, are currently used in new application sectors, among which optoelectronics, photonics and the mobile sector. Among the new applications, the advanced packaging is a significantly strategic one, in which SAES is offering a range of new products for the food sustainable packaging and aims to compete with fully recyclable and compostable solutions.
SAES is synonymous with innovation and evolution. They nurture important relationships with research institutes and key players. Their model thrives upon a collaborative and open-minded vision and is strategically rooted in technological diversification.
“It’s always exciting to meet a company who is passionate about advanced materials innovation,” said Antonia Caraveteanu, Managing Director of INAM. “The team at SAES are very ready to engage and collaborate with our startups and that energy is in contagious. We are looking forward to the many possibilities.”
INAM, the Innovation Network for Advanced Materials, is a global network of companies and research institutes in the field of Advanced Materials. INAM’s goal is to enable the right connections and make technological innovations become reality by working closely with startups, SMEs, corporations and research institutes to start, grow and transform the development of Advanced Materials.
