OBDUCAT, leading manufacturer of lithography solutions based on nanoimprint lithography has completed the installation of the “first-of-its-kind” NIL pilot line at Kimberly-Clark facilities in the US.

Obducat and Kimberly-Clark entered into a Joint Development Agreement in June 2011. In May 2013 Kimberly-Clark placed a purchase order for a Sindre NIL pilot manufacturing line with Obducat.

In November 2013 a Factory Acceptance Test was concluded at Obducat facilities and now the Site Acceptance Test, performed at Kimberly-Clark facilities in the US, has been approved.

The pilot line will be used for production of medical devices being developed by Kimberly-Clark. The FDA approval process is ongoing and provided that the approval can be obtained a ramp into high volume production is targeted.
