making innovation happen, together

In order to improve and maintain the vacuum environment inside hermetically sealed devices, the getters materials play a pivotal role: the getter material can sorb all active gasses such as O2, H2O, CO, CO2 and N2 by a chemical reaction under vacuum.

Depending on the final applications and the production processes, different getter metallic alloys and shapes have been developed, also in cooperation with customers, to fit all the possible getter technical requirements.

SAES offers also services like the Packaging, Ultrasonic microscope bonding line integrity test, RGA tests, Outgassing tests and Leak rate measurement tests.

The getter types SAES is offering are:

• Getter films are the most advanced getter solutions that fulfill the requirements of micro scale vacuum sealed devices. Minimized getter thickness with customized geometry and patternability on different substrates are the distinctive keys advantages of getter film product line.

• Hydrogen getters featuring high sorption capacity, in multiple configurations and without need of activation, ideal for the applications of microelectronics and energy storage.

• Non evaporable getters (NEG), a general category of getters, covering pills, strips, passively and actively heated getters, with different degree of porosity and sorption performance, available in a broad variety of design and functionality. For lamps, electronic tubes, solar collectors, vacuum insulated devices, sensors and more.

• Evaporable getters, from the first stable barium-aluminium alloy to the nitrogen doped BaAl4 for uniform barium distribution, SAES evaporable getters are the solution for a variety of sealed off devices like x-ray tubes, electronic tubes, solar tubes and CRTs.
