Expanding for Innovation Update!

We've got walls! Kind of.....

Day by day we are seeing progress on our facility expansion in Fort Collins! This morning - all we had were pipes and concrete. By mid-morning, we had steel beams in place for the framing of the walls and roof!

We are excited to see what it will look like over the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more Expanding for Innovation updates!

KRI is headed to Denver for the APS March Meeting!

KRI will be attending the APS March Meeting - March 2-6 in Denver

KRI is excited to announce that they are headed to Denver for the APS March Meeting, March 2-6! This is the first time that Kaufman & Robinson has participated in this annual event, and we are looking forward to all of the new connections we will make there! We’re also thrilled for the chance to show off our great state of Colorado – welcoming all of the scientists who work in academia, national laboratories, and various industries throughout the world.

The APS March Meeting Exhibit is the perfect fit for Kaufman & Robinson. Many of the attendees work in sciences and fields such as thin films, semiconductors, optoelectronics, and data storage technologies. KRI is a pioneer and leader in broad beam products that have powered advances in all of these areas and more.

KRI Products on display at APS

KDC10 Source from the Gridded KDC Product Line

Our team of professionals will be showcasing our RFICP40 Remote Mount Version and two products from our Gridded KDC Sources line – the KDC10 and KDC40. The RFICP40 is the smallest and most cost-effective RF gridded ion source product. It is perfect for many research and development applications because of its filament-less technology. The KDC10 & KDC40 sources are often used for research and industrial fabrication of optical, photonics, magnetic, and microelectronic devices. Both are well suited for installations in smaller vacuum systems, and their attractive price points make them perfect for research scientists who would like to add broad beam processing to their laboratory tools. You can find more information about these products here: https://ionsources.com/product-lines/

Kaufman & Robinson will be set up at booth #1805 with products, literature, and a dedicated team to meet with interested parties. While visiting the booth, you can enter to win a KRI Klean Kanteen water bottle! Drawings will be held each day of the exhibition.

Photonics West 2020 Exhibition

Where the world's leading photonics suppliers and latest products are all under one roof!

Kaufman & Robinson is excited to once again be exhibiting at the Photonics West exhibition in San Francisco next month. This important exhibition launches us into our 2020 Trade Show circuit!

We think this show is the perfect start to our 2020 Trade Show schedule! With over 22,000 attendees, it offers many opportunities to meet with current and prospective KRI customers and partners.

Our sales team will be set up in booth #2163. They would love to demonstrate how our products and versatile product lines can assist you with your projects and goals.

This show, our team will be highlighting our KDC40 source. The KDC 40 is an upgrade to the ever popular 3cm Kaufman Source. It has a larger grid pattern, rugged build, and has the ability to be outfitted with self-aligned three grid ion optics. It is particularly useful in insitu preclean, ion beam surface modifications, ion beam assisted deposition, ion beam sputter deposition, and ion beam etching and direct deposition processes. A KDC40 example will be available and on display during the exhibition.

Kaufman & Robinson looks forward to sharing more about our products and their many applications. If you would like more information regarding our products and product lines, or this event, please contact our sales team at KRISales@ionsources.com.

Bags for a Cause

A portion of the Kaufman & Robinson crew had a blast playing bags for a good cause at Turningpoint's annual Awesome Toss 'Em Cornhole Tournament this past weekend!

KRI is proud to support Turningpoint and the important work they do. Turningpoint began as an emergency shelter for youth in crisis back in 1967. They have served Northern Colorado for over 50 years, helping over 2000 youth and their families.  They teach youth to make better decisions and healthier life choices while providing services that include crisis intervention, substance abuse treatment and prevention, mental health treatment, therapy, coaching programs, and intensive residential treatment programs.

Turningpoint's annual Cornhole Tournament is a great opportunity for our employees to meet and play alongside other groups and local companies who support Turningpoint's great work that is being done in our community. It is a fun and engaging event that also boosts our employee connections. Our employees look forward to it every year!
