for the ultimate in precision and reliability
Established to serve the growing demand for fine-featured, flat profile precision metal parts, Tecan works with cutting edge organisations to co-develop innovative products and bring them quickly to market.
Tecan pioneered the use of photo chemical machining (etching) — an innovative, photolithography-based process that was developed as an off-shoot from the manufacture of printed circuit boards.
Why are we based on the UK’s South Coast? Weymouth and Portland have a long naval heritage which originally attracted a thriving electronics industry. Electronics need precision components.
Now a part of the global Muon organisation, Tecan has seen significant investment in plant and technology over the past few years – strengthening its position as one of the World’s leading precision etching experts.
Tecan is a COVID-secure site
We have been operating throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, stringently adhering to guidelines. This includes:
- Carrying out a rigorous COVID-19 risk assessment and sharing the results
- Introducing staggered breaks and limited the number of staff in certain areas
- Maintaining the 2m rule at all times
- Introducing a one way system and foot door openers
- Making hand sanitisers available at not only every entrance and exit, but in several other locations
the Muon Group
As micro-precision components are becoming the key factor for companies when developing their competitive edge, Muon believes that offering successful small-scale answers to complex questions requires acting on a bigger, professional and global scale.
Complementary technologies are brought together under the Muon Group to produce precision components for innovative, mission- critical products.
