Heraeus Sensor Technology is a specialist in the development, production and international marketing of mainly customised components in platinum thin-film technology. This includes annually many millions of Pt sensors for temperature and flow measurement as well as multi-sensor platforms. The latter are used by other manufacturers as a basis for gas and humidity measurement, but also for analytical techniques in aqueous media, for example for medical technology and biotechnology.
Our company philosophy includes contributing to the optimisation of custom-specific designs with our own expertise. Each enquiry is analysed for feasibility and product ideas are tested. Meetings for orientation are followed by initial estimates, realisation tests and finally the common specification of the most important product features. At the end of the development phase there are the product qualifications usual for this field of technology and in parallel the optimisation of the process parameters for reliable and efficient large-scale production.
However with Heraeus Sensor Technology this does not mark the conclusion of the project. Even once large-scale production has started, products and processes are continually adapted together with the customer to reflect the state of development. The growth of experience and the continual generation of knowledge form part of the expressed company objectives.
