Ion Beam Milling Announces Record Q3 2010 Results & Expands Dicing Capacity

Manchester, NH (PRWEB) October 14, 2010 -- Ion Beam Milling, Inc., an established leader in Thin Film applications for the Microwave and Photonics Industries announces record revenues for Q3 2010 after the determination of financial results from the third quarter.

Revenues for the third quarter set a record for Ion Beam Milling with a 32% increase compared to Q3 2009.
In Q3, Ion Beam Milling expanded its customer base adding several major domestic and foreign defense and commercial customers. Customers continually cite Ion Beam Milling’s flexibility and its ability to work both on large scale production projects as well as small prototype efforts as key reasons for selecting Ion Beam Milling’s services.

Jim Barrett, President, said, "During the third quarter, Ion Beam Milling experienced a significant increase in the demand for our Thin Film Microwave and Optical Circuits which we directly attribute to the rebounding economy and increased technology spending in the commercial customer base. Our customers continue to use Ion Beam Milling circuits due to their high reliability and consistency. Ion Beam Milling employs the Ion Milling method for etching circuits which offers superior reliability and circuit to circuit consistency over alternative methods such as chemical (wet) etching."

Additionally, increased demand for Ion Beam Milling’s Dicing services has prompted Ion Beam Milling to add a fifth Disco DAD 321 Automated Dicing Saw to our extensive equipment base.

Our customers include many of the largest names in both the Defense and Commercial spaces.
