Inertgas glovebox systems for industry and research
Founded in 1976 as a manufacturer of inertgas glovebox systems, MBRAUN has expanded its product and service portfolio over the years, offering technical solutions for thermal treatment, vacuum coating, operator safety and automated material handling. The spectrum ranges from standardised laboratory systems to fully customised system solutions for large-scale industry. The systems are used in high-tech applications such as the production of flat screens based on OLED technology, LEDs, thin-film batteries, solar cells (perovskites) and a range of pharmaceutical products.
The basis for further growth was laid in 2016 with the acquisition of CreaPyhs GmbH. The core competence of this company, which was spun off from TU Dresden in 1999, is in the field of high vacuum systems for applications in organic electronics. Here, Creapyhs develops and builds coating systems for the application of nanolayers as required for solid-state batteries and novel perovskite solar cells. MBRAUN maintains intensive cooperation with research institutions and development departments and is a leading global supplier to university laboratories and renowned industrial customers. With production sites in Germany, the USA and China, as well as its own sales and service subsidiaries in the UK, France and South Korea, MBRAUN can supply its customers globally and ensure customer-oriented service. With an installed base of more than 25,000 systems, MBRAUN is currently represented in more than 40 countries and relies on the expertise of more than 360 employees.
