Testimonial of Benoit Scheid, from Tips – Physique des Fluides, about our mask aligner UV-KUB 3

I had been waiting several years for a major technological breakthrough in the area of mask aligners when I discovered, in 2013, that KLOE was about to launch version 3 of their UV-KUB exposure masking equipment with a new video-based alignment system.


As I was satisfied of the UV-KUB 2 already installed a few years ago at the laboratory, particularly because of its very performing LED technology, I have contacted KLOE to get more information on this new model. 


Its price was almost three times lower than other standard mask aligners available on the market.


Acquiring a mask aligner with modest public financing resources was then becoming more accessible. I did my best to be among the first to benefit from this opportunity. After getting funds thanks to strong arguments, and despite a complex tool which needed intensive development work from KLOE, I received in due time, early 2015, the very first serial number. Since then, our mask aligner is perfectly working and is incredibly easy to use, which is together with the price one of its key asset. This equipment now offers us new possibilities and opportunities for the development of microfluidic circuits.
