Microsieve membrane design

Design & prototyping

Aquamarijn helps transforming your ideas into concepts and the concepts into functional designs ready for manufacturing. Our company has a well-trained team of highly motivated engineers and designers eager to understand and work out any designs. Our engineers are experts in their own specific but diverse fields of chemistry, electrical engineering, MEMS and physics. But they do not refuse to look ‘over the fence’ and get that specific knowledge or technology for you that will make your design or product a success. We combine these capabilities with basic engineering skills and knowledge from different application areas.

Microsieve and surface chemistry know-how

Our microsieve and surface chemistry experience and know-how is also used to estimate and test  i.e. the membrane strength, fluidic behavior and flow trajectories. We consider mechanical, thermal, electrical, chemical and/or optical material properties in the early engineering stage. Experience gained in design and prototyping using a wide range of materials (e.g. silicon, silicon oxide, silicon nitride and organic polymers) helps to optimize the outcome of projects. Engineering and knowledge make Aquamarijn a valued partner in prototyping and product design.

Design and prototyping tools

Aquamarijn uses different software packages to generate 2D and 3D CAD designs, design mask layouts and for calculations and modeling. With design computers we generate detailed designs for clear communication and accurate products. The use of high-end dedicated design tools optimizes the resulting design and minimizes the necessary prototype iterations. Our Engineering department is always in close collaboration with the customer to ensure an optimal design outcome within the project scope. Aquamarijn has in-house 3D printing tools for prototyping.
