SAWATEC AG is a leading Swiss high-tech company founded in 1996. It was created by merging the two companies Sawatzki Engineering and Bruno Sawatzki Konstruktion.

This successful co-operation produced numerous patents, which emphasises our great innovative power.

The focus of the company founders’ efforts has always been the strong conviction of being able to offer high-quality equipment to customers at attractive prices.

At SAWATEC innovations are no coincidence, instead they are the result of the interaction of customer focus, a wealth of ideas, expertise and long-standing experience.

The development team distinguishes itself through extensive problem-solving skills coupled with a high level of fexibility, allowing it to develop optimal solutions for specific customer requirements within a short period of time. To do so, it employs state-of-the-art engineering tools (3D Pro Engineer).

Components are procured from long-standing suppliers and installed, commissioned and tested extensively on-site in Switzerland prior to handover.

SAWATEC works in partnership with qualified suppliers, who meet the high quality standards and consistently contribute to improving our products.



Our quality philosophy is supported by the following guiding principles.

  • We offer to our customer’s high-quality and durable products at an attractive price-performance ratio.
  • SAWATEC products are characterized by high uniformity and process repeatability and hence ensure a high level of process reliability for the customer.
  • We are constantly striving for continuous improvement (CIP).
  • We conserve resources and the environment.


Coating quality through perfect interaction of various parameters
To ensure that a high level of process reliability can be reached, the interaction of our products with the defined process parameters, the selected substrate and the photoresist must be perfectly co-ordinated.

Furthermore, the process environment exerts a great influence on the process quality, therefore the ambient temperature, the exhaust and supply air (laminar flow) and all technical Connections (N2, compressed air…) must be designed optimally.
