SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES Group business model

The SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES Group's business activities center on developing, manufacturing, and marketing machinery and equipment in the fields of vacuum coating technology, surface engineering, wet chemistry, and thermal processing technologies. The range of services includes all associated business areas and services – including the various forms of sales financing. The Company's primary focus is on the solar, optical disc, and semiconductor areas of application, with particular attention to consumer goods and medical technology in the future. Additional external factors for SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES mainly relate to demand for new production equipment for these markets and for new applications.

The business activities in the area of consumer goods and medical technology are immaterial with regard to the Group’s financial key performance indicators in the year under review. Therefore, the product’s technical properties were used as a basis for segment allocation. Specifically, the activities in the consumer goods area were included in the Solar segment.

In the Solar segment, SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES offers machinery for manufacturing crystalline solar cells and thin-film solar cells based on copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS), and cadmium telluride (CdTe) vacuum deposition equipment and equipment for wet-chemical processing. The field of activity of crystalline solar cells includes production solutions for high-efficiency solar cell concepts such as HJT (heterojunction), IBC (interdigited back contact), PERC (passivated emitter rear cell), and PERT (high-efficiency passivated emitter, rear totally diffused cell) solar cells. SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES also markets complete crystalline silicon solar cell production lines in this segment.

After previously reaching the strategic decision to enter the market for medical technology, SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES successfully landed a first order for wet-chemical equipment with a renowned customer in November of the fiscal year 2017. In future, both wet-chemical processing equipment and vacuum deposition equipment will be offered in this industry.

Machinery to produce common optical disc formats (CD, DVD, dual-layer Blu-ray discs and Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs with a storage capacity of up to 100 GB) is offered in the Optical Disc segment. The range of equipment is complemented by the global replacement parts and service business.

In recent years, the DECOLINE II integrated production line and the POLYCOATER inline vacuum cathode sputtering system were developed for the consumer goods area.

In the Semiconductor segment, SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES offers the TIMARIS and ROTARIS ultra-high-vacuum modular equipment platforms for the deposition of semiconductor wafers with complex functional coatings.
