Sapphire demand in 2016 was about 806 ton, while the total industrial sapphire core and wafer market has observed an annual growth rate of 12%. Moreover, silicon carbide-based power devices market is expected to grow steadily from € 143M in 2016 to € 851M in 2022. Despite the increasing demand of these crystals, quality control of such materials is based mostly on human visual inspection. Industrial crystal manufactures usually rely on operators searching for internal material flaws such as cracks or bubbles. Because of quality control being prone to human error, and taking place only at the late stages of the process, typical crystal factories are spending 0.5 to 3 days per week of potential unnecessary work. To solve this problem, Scientific Visual has developed SAPPHIRO. SAPPHIRO’s technology comprises scanning systems for automated crystal inspections, allowing to identify internal defects in crystal slices earlier. Our solution allows producers to manage quality assessment in a faster way, since the technology also provides automatic processing and sorting of inspected pieces (0.5M to 1M samples/year). SAPPHIRO's performance has proven to reach more than 96% of accurate defect identification in sapphire material and allows manufacturers process only high-quality materials, saving up to 15% of overall cost for industrial operations. Scientific Visual main goal is to implement SAPPHIRO as a worldwide standard in raw optical crystals inspection tools, whereas our disruptive technology can re-shape the synthetic growth market practices. By 2022, we target to generate € 10.5 million in revenues, while significantly reducing the current defect rate of 20% to less than 4%. This Phase 1 project will allow us to show-case our technology leading to better market understanding and new partnerships.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "SAPPHIRO" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (email@example.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
