Bengaluru, May 2017 – Bengaluru based Hind High Vacuum Co. Pvt. Ltd. (HHV), announced that is has achieved the prestigious Certification of Qualification awarded by Space Application Centre(SAC), ISRO for its 3 layer metallisation process on Alumina substrates for flight hardware realisation. This outstanding product ‘3- layer metallisation on alumina substrate’ better known as Thin Film Metalised Circuits realised by populating with various components for use in high frequency RF circuits, was entirely developed by HHV's dedicated team of R&D professionals out of its facility in Bengaluru.
The certification was accorded with honor by Mr. A.K Lal, Group Director SRG, SAC to Mr. Prasanth Sakhamuri, Managing Director, N.J Babu, COO and Mr Ramakrishna Siddam, Business Head of HHV.
HHV is humbled to be recognised and be of service to an organisation like ISRO which is bringing glory to India across the world with its technical prowess and execution excellence. Only a handful of companies across the world have had the privilege of serving for ISRO and HHV becomes the first Indian company to cross that barrier," said Prasanth Sakhamuri, Managing Director of HHV. "The technology required for the end product is an amalgamation of both thought leadership and precise execution leading to a superior finished product. This has been possible through the best in class manufacturing practices and technical intellect at HHV leading to a world class product."
"The manufacturing unit set up by HHV for this process required matching stringent specifications for space qualification and highest level of precision to produce reliable and consistent quality products. The necessary upgradation of the production systems was taken up to bring in futuristic technologies. An ISO Class 6 clean room was specifically established for the purpose of depositing defect free metallisation coatings," added Prasanth Sakhamuri.
Metallised Alumina circuits find extensive use in many additional applications like SAW devices, microwave integrated circuits, low noise amplifiers and power dividers, medical applications like deep tissue heating, and collision detection for automotive industry, and endless uses in RADAR. With great advantage of superior processing technology, competitive pricing and easy inland delivery, it is intended to provide the best experience to the customer. To further build a reputation as the technology leader and also be future ready , efforts are on to build a lithography facility in-house to etch circuits out which will meet the futuristic demands in space technology helping to serve the country better. HHV is always committed to delivering the best in class products to the customer.
Established in 1965 at Bangalore as a specialised enterprise to develop Indian self-reliance in high vacuum technology,HHV today serves a spectrum of Industries and R&D centers covering aerospace, atomic energy, defence, automotive, semi-conductors, electrical, horology, scientific instrumentation, decorative, food processing to name a few. HHV has an advanced research and manufacturing program in thin film technology, material science, metallurgy, astronomy, and special purpose machinery.
