Diamond Coated Silicon (DCS)
By coating Silicon components with Diamond, the advantages of both materials can be favourably combined. Silicon is light weight and can be processed very precisely and reproducibly using micro-technical etching processes (DRIE) and therefore serves as a shaping substrate. The component gets its incomparable mechanical stability, functionality and durability from a thin 3D coating of Diamond. This produces mechanically robust and wear-less components that are cost-effective in series production.
The thin Diamond coating prevents efficiently damage from assembly or cleaning steps as well as chipping and fraction during operation.
