Sono-Tek Corporation Expands In-House Laboratory Testing Facilities in Milton, NY

Aug 09, 2013

 Sono-Tek Corporation (OTC BB: SOTK), a global ultrasonic spray technology company, today announced that the expansion of its laboratory testing facility, located at the corporate headquarters in Milton, NY, has been completed. The recent acquisition of new equipment, including an SEM microscope for onsite analysis of coatings performed in the lab, led to some reorganization and physical expansion of the facility itself in order to provide a better workflow for customers and visitors in addition to some increased elbow room.

The newly installed equipment, and particularly the SEM microscope, enables Sono-Tek to gauge process variables by providing immediate onsite analysis of coatings that require very precise deposition characteristics, such as photoresist onto MEMs, fuel cell coatings, medical implantable device coatings and other nanomaterial coatings. Additionally, a new corona surface treatment has been installed to better prepare substrates for improved surface tension characteristics prior to coating. The acquisition of at least one more surface treatment tool is planned in the future.

Access to equipment such as this new SEM is beneficial not only to Sono-Tek customers, but to the surrounding community of colleges and other research institutions in New York for advancing research and manufacturing of future innovations in our area,” said Steve Harshbarger, Sono-Tek’s President. “We envision our lab continuing to grow in the coming years, as new applications for ultrasonic spray coating continue to develop.”

Located in the heart of the Hudson Valley, Sono-Tek is pleased to help bring these high-tech applications for precision semiconductor and advanced energy close to home. For more information, email info@sono-tek.com or visit www.sono-tek.com.


Sono-Tek is the world leader in the development and application of liquid ultrasonic atomization technology into nozzle systems and spraying and coating application systems. Compared to conventional pressure spraying methods, the company’s ultrasonic nozzles do not clog, reduce liquid usage, waste, and environmental impact while achieving much more precise, uniform, thin film coatings. Sono-Tek is continually developing new applications for its unique technology, replacing wasteful practices in a world that is growing ever more environmentally sensitive.
