Nordiko Technical Services Limited
Nordiko is a technology based company with a significant knowledge base in thin film deposition and surface modification. Nordiko offers a range of affordable equipment targeted at development, laboratory, and production applications. Nordiko [est. in 1972] has 40 years experience of thin film.
Our sputtering technology is both mature and innovative benefitting from knowledge gained over almost 40 years.
Our ion beam technology is used both in milling (etching) and deposition applications. Patented plasma source and ion accelerator designs are deployed in a range of broad ion beam sources from 10 to 30 cm.
Our product range encompasses stand-alone systems targeted at academia and RD&I, also batch tools for pilot production and systems that integrate our process modules with capable and yet affordable wafer handling platforms for advanced material applications and higher throughput.

|2015|| Opened Nordiko Inc office in Michigan. John Walters appointed General Manager Nordiko Inc.
John Walters joined Nordiko in 1987. John’s background with the company has been primarily in commissioning and as service manager. He has a wealth of knowledge regarding the installed base of Nordiko machines.
|2016||Over the past years Nordiko has been working to improve our systems. With a focus of improving functionality and performance together with ease of maintenance, we plan to ship our first new generation 3400 Broad Ion Beam Deposition System. The system retains the unique geometry of the 3400 and benefits from our latest generation of high-output MkV RF ion sources.|
|2017||Following the introduction of the updated 3400 we have progressed to introducing the new features, Mk V ion sources, a new substrate table, new target assembly and revised neutralisers into the 3000.|
Nordiko – Innovation with reliability – a winning combination…
