Hyperion Acquires Crafts Technology

News

Complementary deal enhances global manufacturer’s tailor-made tungsten carbide capabilities

Hyperion Materials & Technologies, a US materials science company, has announced the acquisition of Crafts Technology, a US-based high-precision provider of tailor-made cemented tungsten carbide solutions.

This announcement follows Hyperion's split two years ago from Sandvik, and last year's acquisition of NanoDiamond Products (NDP) in Ireland, which manufactures a variety of materials used to lap and polish electronics components.

While the Crafts acqusition does not directly impact the synthetic diamond materials and services Hyperion provides for making semiconductors, the move expands Hyperions's overall portfolio, capabilities and application expertise, according to the company.

“We are thrilled to combine Crafts Technology's complementary engineering expertise and manufacturing capabilities with Hyperion's materials expertise and global footprint,” said Ron Voigt, CEO of Hyperion.

Crafts, which has a legacy that spans more than 100 years, shares Hyperion's mission of applying materials science, engineering, and manufacturing expertise to develop novel and creative engineered solutions that enhance the performance and productivity of its customers. In addition to developing engineered solutions from tungsten carbide, Crafts possesses expertise in polycrystalline diamond (PCD), advanced ceramics, high-strength steels, and other innovative materials.

Hyperion, headquartered in Worthington, Ohio, is known for making hard and super-hard materials with nearly 70 years of experience in cemented carbide, diamond, and cubic boron nitride technologies. Hyperion specialises in premium base materials, toolmaker components, engineered products, and process tools and solutions for a range of applications.



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
