Inert gas glove box systems for industry and research
M. BRAUN is known around the world as a manufacturer of inert gas glove box systems and gas purification systems. These systems are used in the manufacture of high-tech products such as flat screens with OLED technology, xenon automotive lighting, lithium-ion batteries, and pharmaceutical products. The company collaborates intensively with research institutes and development departments, and is one of the world’s leading equipment suppliers to university laboratories. Furthermore, its production network of locations in Germany, the USA and China, as well as its own branches in the UK and South Korea, enable M. BRAUN to supply and offer regular service to customers all over the world. The company is looking to expand strongly in the future, in particular in Asia. To further increase its competitiveness, M. BRAUN acquired CreaPhys GmbH in 2016, a young company operating in the organic electronics sector. Established as a spin-off from Dresden Technical University in 1999, the company designs and builds high vacuum systems and components for organic thin film deposition, vacuum sublimation systems and thermal evaporators. Its customers include numerous research institutions in this sector as well as multinational chemical and electronics companies.
