35 Years of Raith GmbH
The leading international technology supplier of nanofabrication, electron and ion beam lithography equipment celebrates its 35th birthday.
When Raith launched the first ELPHY hardware/software system onto the market in 1988 – an “electronic pencil” that could complement the imaging functionality of a scanning electron microscope (SEM) with a writing component – no one really dreamed the company could become a worldwide leading precision technology solution provider for nanofabrication in the future.
Today, nanoresearchers all over the world work with microscopic structures 50,000 times finer than a human hair – and Raith GmbH has supported these developments for 35 years.
Founded in Dortmund, Germany in 1980, Raith today offers the world´s largest customer support network, with more than 50 support engineers. After the acquisition of Vistec B.V. and Vistec Inc. in 2013, Raith now offers expertise spanning over 45 years.
The company’s declared goal is to consistently outperform the ever more advanced requirements of its customers at universities, research institutions and industrial companies. The whole Raith team looks forward to continuing these successful relationships for many more than 35 years into the future!
