For more than 25 years, Multi-lab has specialized in the development and manufacture
of high precision machined and polished parts. As a custom fabricator and
polisher of fused quartz, ceramics, sapphire, shapal M and Macor, the company’s
skilled CNC machine and polishing engineers having rich experience in the field
of precision grinding and processing will continually manufacture components
that will surpass customers’ expectations. The company can meet extremely close
tolerances needed to satisfy both military and industrial specifications. Key
industries such as semiconductor and solar and aerospace depend on Multi-lab’s
high-quality performance and production guarantees. Other than supplying a
quotation from a customer drawing, an added benefit is that the company’s
engineers are capable of taking the customer’s component and reverse engineering
it or they can take a CAD file from the customer and feed it directly into their
system using all common file formats. The final inspection area enables products
to be measured to 5 decimal places using their CMM equipment if this level of
quality control is needed.
At its two UK sites Multi-lab can undoubtedly supply a service second to none,
within its Newcastle upon Tyne facility. Multi-lab
fabricates Quartzware and produces machined components for a wide range of
industries, these include MOCVD equipment customers manufacturing planetary
reactors, showerhead concepts and high-temperature research systems, UV Water
sterilisation, UV drying, UV lamp manufacturing, R and D, medical and university
fabricated parts. Along with manufacturing advanced products for the
semiconductor and PV Industries Multi-lab also
supports several other markets and Industries with superior quality and
competitively priced fabricated products. Between the two UK sites, the company
has an excess of 25 hot bench and lathe trained glass blowers with an apprentice
training program in place to sustain and increase its manufacturing
Within its East Kilbride facility all the staff were trained by Heraeus
quartz to a very high standard, and have spent several years producing some of
the most sophisticated fabricated Quartzware used in the semiconductor,
photovoltaic and related Industries.
Fabricated Quartzware is offered by Multi-lab for
both batch and single wafer applications.
