The UV-LIGA process

The UV-LIGA process developed by Mimotec

The UV-LIGA process developed by Mimotec is based on microelectronic technologies. It enables the micromanufacturing of components by combining photolithography and electroforming. This additive technology has the advantage of being inexpensive and quick to implement, which makes the process very competitive compared to traditional material removal methods. It is ideal for rapid prototyping as well as for mass production, and it achieves a level of micrometric accuracy as well as an unequalled surface finish quality.

UV-LIGA technology

UV-LIGA opens up new perspectives

New perspectives in the miniaturisation of components as well as in surface microstructuring. It enables us to produce geometries that cannot be achieved using standard production processes.

PIONEERING UV-LIGA

PIONEERING UV-LIGA

Dr Hubert Lorenz invented UV-LIGA technology while he was working on his thesis. He then founded the company in 1998 in Sion, Switzerland. Specialised and recognised in Switzerland and abroad in the fields of microtechnology and micromechanics, Mimotec SA has been working for more than 20 years in the service of excellence.
