THE JUNORA STORY
Junora was established in May 2017 with a goal of bringing new technologies and capabilities to market for the manufacture of rotary sputtering targets used in thin film deposition processes. We will be launching new technology: Q1 2019. Initial (2019) material group Junora is focused on for new technology: Ag, Al, Cu, In, Li, Sn, Zn and alloys thereof.
Junora is currently offering planar and rotary targets in a wide variety of materials manufactured by more traditional manufacturing methods. The first shipment (rotary targets to Asia) occurred in October 2018 with a number of other shipments scheduled before year end. Junora has also added planar bonding capabilities along with ultrasonic inspection
